just had an idea - champix related

hey folks,

so im on day 4 of chantix. so far im smoking about about 50% of what i use to. the one place im still falling flat on my face is when im chatting with people on the phone. i still find myself smoking when i do that.

but otherwise the urge to smoke is reduced.

which got me thinking - what else could i do to increase my desire to quit smoking. then it hit me! - switch brands!

im sure most of you are like me and have been smoking the same brand (or are particular to 2 or 3 brands max). if you're like me the other brands don't taste good to you or whatever.

so if i switch to a brand of smoke that i dont really like - and with chantix blocking my nicotine receptors - i think that will really assist in decreasing my desire to smoke even more.

what do you guys think? good strategy?
