Hi, I started Chantix sometime in July. I made my quit attempt after 2-3 wks on the pill. First attempt lasted 3 days. Bought a pack, but smoke so little, it lasts a week. I then quit for a week, smoked for a week, quit for a week and a half, bought some again...
Well, this has been the pattern the entire time. Last week, I gave up attempting and bought a pack after 2 days of not smoking. They ran out yesterday, haven't bought them yet, but wondering if I should give up trying. When do you decide you just can't do it? I feel like such a failure when I read succcess stories on here. It gets me so down; feeling like there's no reason why I shouldn't be able to quit, too.
It's not even cravings that are getting me. I haven't craved since being on Chantix. But I haven't stopped "wanting" to smoke, either. I do want to quit....
I guess I just don't want to give up the "habit" part of it.
I don't even know. They taste horrible, of course, due to the Chantix, and it's not worth it after
I have it, but yet I keep going.
So I guess my question is, is it even worth it. Should I give up? Maybe try again in a few years or whenever? When do I decide this is just another failed attempt?
Thanks for any thoughts you'd like to share.
