I get so fling pissed when i cant smoke-but I got the gum and i hope it helps. Good luck :)
    Quitting smoking is the most uncomfortable thing I ever did and not knowing when this pain will end is driving me crazy. I was going to wait until after the wedding too but there is always an excuse not to quit but I didn't want to be a smoking bride. I will admit I am a crazy, moody beatch right now and think maybe I should have waited until we were legally wed so he can't leave as easily. You should talk to your doctor because while I was on the Chantix it was soooooooo much easier and I have tried everything gum, patch, inhalers, losengers and I am sure something else. Good luck when you do quit

        FYI about Chantix... make sure you DONT DRINK on it. This is a scary story, but if you are on Chantix, you really should hear this.

        A guy I know, his roommate was on it, and one night he went out for a few drinks with his girlfriend eventhough it tells you not to drink. My friend says he only had 3 drinks which is far less than this guy usually has when he goes out. On the drive home he got into it with his girlfriend. When they got to their home he completely blacked out and a neighbor said they heard screaming. He flew off the handle and hit her, which was totally out of character for this guy. She than ran away, and he went to the nextdoor neighbors house because he was so disoriented and thought it was his trying to find her. The neighbor got so freaked out about this guy trying to break into his house, he shot him and killed him. His family and friends totally blames this incident on Chantix. I'm not saying that it doesn't work, or that it does.

        So DONT DRINK ON THIS STUFF!!!
        I just thought everyone should know.

          Yeah Chantix is a anti depression and drinkin gon it can be dangerous to your body and your mental state. A lot of people can not go on the drug do to all the side effects. That is one reason I stopped taking it I couldn't sleeo and got very ill minutes after I took it but it was a life saver the first couple of days I felt great and the nicotine cravings were minimium. I highly reccommend it but with doctors orders and no drinking. I actully spent a lot of $$$ on it (my insurance covers nothing) and upset I had to stop taking it
