I don’t know where I’m going, but I sure know where I’ve been.


Well. I just took my first dose of Chantix, and immediately lit a cigarette. This… probably does not bode well.

I’m using the GetQuit program too, but I honestly don’t know how this is going to go. I suppose that if it even significantly reduces my smoking, it will be worth it. In the meantime, I am incredibly damn nervous, and pathetically grateful that the first week of the program/medicine still allows me to smoke. I’m keeping a smoking log, I’m going to be receiving check-in calls and emails, I am dismally sure that I will Fail At This, but I’m doing it anyway.

Things might get very cranky around here in a week. My quit date is the 14th. If the entire Internet could cross its fingers, that would be great.

* Whitesnake. Of course.

    I’ll call you and check in, b/c I can do that lying on my side! wahoo!!

    If you call me and check in AND the Chantix folks call me and check in, I will be out of phone minutes in like three days. Which I might be anyway, but still. :P

    Also, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THE INTERNET SO MUCH?

    You can do it! Give the medicine some time to work. My mom said after a few days on it, she’d light a cigarette and it just wouldn’t taste good/satisfy.

    As to not run up your phone minutes, I can poke you here and/or on Facebook.

    And are you talking April 14 or May 14??

    April 14th. You start the Chantix, and on the 8th day of taking it you stop smoking cold turkey. I am… uh, terrified of that prospect, but the whole point of this week is to let the Chantix do its thing. Here’s hoping.

    And yes, regular poking would be awesome. I don’t know why I thought the middle of a major depression + health stress + money woes was The Best Time to quit smoking. WTF.

    Guessin’ the health stress and money woes might have something to do with it.

    Do you want to do it? Because I hear that’s the biggest factor in successfully quitting. Good luck!
