Hi everyone day 2 for me this is hard I'm taking chantix. I don't understand how this works once you stop smoking. I thought the idea was to block nicotine from getting to the brain. Therefore if I'm not smoking what is it doing. I will keep taking but I'm not sure if it does any good once you've quit. I think it would be good to take for two weeks while smoking, that way you would go through withdrawals while still smoking. I took it for a week and I started having some symptoms while still smoking towards end of week. I was recently diagnosed with emphysema and am waiting for results from a 2nd chest x-ray. I woke up this morning and could not stop crying. I think this may be part of my withdrawal. Any advice or words of encouragement would be appreciated
