First Day With Chantix

Well today is my first day of taking Chantix to help me stop smoking.  I could sure use your prayers.  I tried this med approximately 3 yrs. ago.  I had to stop just a few days into it because I felt like I had an elephant sitting on my chest.  Because I'm in bad need of surgery on my neck and lower back I "have" to give this another try.  I hear you have very vivid dreams with this med.  I can handle the dreams but Lord please keep the heaviness from appearing in the first few days.  I don't want this addiction hanging over me any longer.  I want to have this surgery and try to get back to being as close to normal as one can be also living with Fibromyalgia.  It's a double whammy when you're down with your back.  I'm slowly losing the ability to walk.  I've always been persistent when I'd have bad fibro days and would get out and try to walk as much as my body would tolerate.  I would continue moving no matter how great the pain was.  Believe me,…
