Chantix Day 12

Wow, yesterday I only bothered to smoke twice (other days are here), and that's partly just because I still have a few cigarettes left. There were some "urges" here and there that I sat through just for practice, but it wasn't like the insane "craving" feeling of times past. There is a world of difference between the two. Urges I can handle (deep breaths and drinking some water help me most). I'm still having very few side effects with nothing really all that bad, and the dreams are still a pleasant and usually hilarious experience instead of a scary/sleepless thing. I'm pretty amazed at how Chantix works and how well it works.

As we get closer to the actual quit date for real, I found this great Helping A Smoker Quit: Do's and Don'ts for people who have the joy of living with someone who is quiting smoking (bet that's loads of fun!). This tip might be exploited: "Do help the quitter with a few chores, some child care, cooking – whatever will help lighten the stress of quitting." I'd add making coffee, but Tom already does that perfectly. He's good to me, and I'm a lucky girl.
