Chantix question please....

My doctor is out of town for 4 days so hoping one of you may know the answer. I am on day 5 taking Chantix. Am I suppose to be trying to cut down each day while taking this? So far I'm still smoking about 12-14 cigs per day, same as I have for years! I am finally enjoying cigs just a little bit less than before but still in the habit, mostly out of boredom I think. Thanks!!

I smoked up thru the 9th day on the med and then just quit. They tasted nasty and I did not smoke as much as I would normaly. I felt confident and just put them down. I have never looked back. I am in my 11th month!! Good luck to you! Not easy but doable!

Re: Chantix question please....

Late in the day on day seven of my Chantix, my cigs started tasting funny and I realized I was'nt smoking as much. When I woke up on day eight, I kinda wanted a cig and kinda didn't so I decided to see how long I could go without one, and well, I still haven't had one. One week seems to be the norm to lay the cigs down, but some people it is earlier or some people a little later.
Good luck. You are on your way to a new life!
