  • I did start again. I've tried to quit at least 5 times now but I always end up falling off the wagon and buying a pack.

  • I did, I wish I didn't. I'm trying to quit now. Any tips? It was easy to quit when pregnant for the baby, but now I'm having a hard time.

  • No, I didn't. I didn't want my daughter to smell that, and I will never allow her near a smelly smoker.

  • unfortunately yes. It was a while later but I did. I ended up quiting 2 times again but started back both times..sigh. Chantix has been sucessful in helping me quit (when i'm not pregnant of course) and I'll stay smoke free several month. But if something very stressful happens, it's not so helpful in keeping me quit lol. I just haven't been able to find what works for me in keeping me off them yet.
