How many days until Chantix kicks in ?

This morning I took my 2nd Chantix pill (only the 2nd day). So far I haven't had the slightest side effects (good thing) but I'm also enjoying smoking as much as ever (not a good thing). How many days did it take you for Chantix to kick in and affect your desire to smoke?

It took me 7 days before the cigs started tasting funny and I didn't that high from them. I wasn't sure I would stop smoking the eighth day, but I decided to go for it and now it has been

19 weeks, 1 day, 19 hours, 14 minutes, 23 seconds

Re: How many days until Chantix kicks in ?

I think I started to feel some effects after about the third or fourth day on Chantix. Cigarettes didn't start to taste bad or anything - I was just feeling kind of 'blah' about everything. I would still smoke, but I noticed after a few days that I was smoking less. Then on day 7, I started feeling a little sick after I smoked. Day 8 was quit day (yesterday), and I won't say it was easy. But I will say I didn't smoke so that's something.

Good luck to you - keep taking it and find support wherever you can.
