and I joined their Get Quit internet support program. I have to check in with them twice a day. For the first week you just take the medicine and smoke as you normally would or as you want to. Your quit date is 8 days from the first day you take it so that would be next Sunday for me. On that day they will call me that evening to see how it went. Yikes! Of course, we have all heard the warnings and side effects on TV about the risks with this medicine. I am a bit worried and Tony is freaking out. He says if I am even one bit more moody or irrational he is pulling me off it. I told him you can only expect me to be crabbier than normal if I am trying to quit cigs! Now if I start wanting to borrow his gun to shoot the family and myself...then he can worry...lmao. I also told him that if I succeed with suicide he can call the number for the lawyer that keeps running ads for people who committed suicide while on Chantix. Gallows humor.
