My ex stopped using http://www.original-smoke-away.com. He swears it helped with the withdrawals.

I used Chantix for 4 weeks and I felt like total crap, it didn't take away the cravings, I was smoking just as much if not more while taking it and it made me so sick to my stomach I couldn't eat. My doc said some people have that reaction but some do very well with it. You should atleast give it a try it couldn't hurt anything but make you sick and not work at worst. Hope this helps..

I have smoked for over 30 yrs. Have tried the patch, hypnosis, gum, cold turkey, you name it I've tried it. I started the Chantix the end of December. My quit date was January 1st of this year. I have not had a cigarette and have not even wanted one. I swear by this stuff. If you decide to go on it let me know and I'll give you some tips on how not to feel like crap while your taking it. I wish they would have made this 20 yrs ago. Good luck

Do you have to smoke a certain amount a day to go on Chantix?
I had heard it's very hard on the stomach- is that true?

How much do you smoke a day? It can be hard on your stomach if you don't follow the directions. You have got to eat something when you take it and I found that I had to drink the full amount of water it says to when you take it. I think it may be 6 or 8 ozs. I know people that have not followed the directions and feel awful.

I've never heard of Chantrix, but every since I started taking Wellbutrin I found it totally took the crazings away, and I was able to quit. Wellbutrin is the same as Zyban, another stop-smoking pill, and it's also used as an antidepressant. Its one of the few, maybe the ONLY one I know of that does NOT have any sexual side affects.

Hi Kicker~

Most days I smoke about 1/2 pack.. once in awhile I'll almost make a whole pack.

I'm sure the Chantix will help you, but you really have to want to quit. As far as the Wellbutrin or Zyban, I was allergic to it. I may sound crazy but the Chantix to me is a miracle drug. I gave up quitting until I tried this.
