Default Hi

Hi everyone. Dr gave me a prescription for Chantix yesterday. After reading everything I have about's kinda scary. I have 2 kids and really don't want to freak out after taking this stuff. I haven't started it yet but I really want and need to stop smoking. 2 packs a day for 9 years. I have no history of depression but my life can get real stressful at times as I have a 10 year old that insists I'm the devil and am so mean. She's a little out of control so it can get crazy around here. Any input would be appreciated! Thanks

I also want to add that I've got an upper resp infection right now (one of the reasons I want to quit, was coughing up gross stuff and thought I had lung cancer) I'm on antibiotic and Maxitab (strong congestion meds) question is if I should wait until this is cleared up before starting the Chantix?

I'd ask the doctor...and if he says it's fine to start now...then it's up to you. I always found it easier to refrain from smoking when I was it might be a good time to get a head start. Chantix worked for me. I took it for a month and then quit...continuing the med for another 3-4 weeks. It's been a year and I dont miss it all or mind being around smokers. Weird but true. Good luck to you...
