After smoking for 34 years I've gone 5 days without smoking. I couldn't justify another $7.00 a day for a pack and I was breathing really hard going up stairs. After only 5 days smoke free I feel incredible. No wheezing, no shortness of breath, my sense of taste is waking up, and I can smell things again. There are some slightly weird but tolerable side effects but don't let that chase you off if you're considering trying Chantix. I'm really grateful to them, I tried everything else and I was out of options.
If you are a young kid and you started smoking because you thought it was hip and trendy you are a fucking moron. Put down the smokes, walk away, and never look back. You stink, your breath stinks, your clothes stink, and you look like an idiot. You do not look sexy and ironic with a cigarette hanging out of your mouth. There is no justification for smoking that makes sense, none. I wish someone had kicked me in the head when I first tried it and woke my dumb ass up. Not to mention the cost... 34 years X 365 = approx 12,000 packs at and average price of oh say $4.00 a pack = $48,000.00 gone. Wasted. Flicked in the street. I could've done a lot with $48K. How about you?
