    I absolutely HAVE to stop smoking! My doc gave me a prescription for Chantix but, it's around $130 and insurance won't pay. Before I spend that much I wanted to ask others' opinions on it? Have you tried it and did it help? I'm totally addicted and have smoked for about 26 years. Help!

    Hi Pat,

    I just started the Chantix this week, so I can't say for sure that it will work. I work full time and I usually watch the clock for break time for my smoke and I noticed the last 2 days I wasn't even thinking about it!

    I have cut down my cigs by about a third and I've been on the Chantix only 5 days. That's pretty promising for me! I've been a smoker for about 28 years now.

    Hope this was helpful and good luck to you!

    Thanks for replying. It sounds like the Chantix is helping you. I wanted to ask a favor if you don't mind? Since you are the only person I've heard from who is trying this drug, could you give me a holler in a couple of weeks and tell me if it's still working or has worked completely for you? It's a lot of money for me to spend right now, but I have to stop smoking for my health and my daughter's health as well. So I'll scrape the money together somehow if I know for sure that it's worked for at least one person. I would be very grateful to you. Just mention my username or Chantix in the title so I will read it-that is if you don't mind doing it for me.

    Thank you, Pat
