I so want to quit smoking and have tried for the past 6 months without success. I had heard of Chantix and the great results achieved by many people and decided to give it a whirl. I needed that extra "heave-ho" to help me with this nasty habit. I have been on Chantix for several days now and am already developing a distaste for cigarettes. It has been said that this medication blocks the pleasure of smoking and I am already seeing this happen and the craving start to dissapate for cigarettes. Not to be called a "miracle" drug by some this medication comes in a neat, easily understandable starter box. All the directions are clearly labled taking the guesswork out of how to begin. The only side effect I have noticed at this point is a little dryness in my mouth, which is easily remedied with drinking water. If you want to quit smoking and are having trouble on your own try this new medication. Give the "gift" of being a nonsmoker to yourself and reap the health benefits of being smoke-free.
