Sounds to good to be true, right?
It already seems like a list no one would want to face.
One of the worst side effects of the patch is having nightmares when you sleep. But to avoid them, you could simply take the patch off before going to bed. Most people forget to do that, though.
However, with this drug, there is no "taking it off before bed." You take it orally everyday, so you are stuck with the drug in your body. And guess what? You are stuck with nightmares. You won't be able to escape them.
Does That Scare You?
It should, because it's real. Imagine waking up in terror and not being able to do anything about it. With the patch, you could just simply rip it off. With Chantix, you can't. Now I admit not everyone taking the drug will experience nightmares, but a good portion will. Do you want to take that chance?
The side effects seem too brutal to me. I don't want to think I'm going to be vomiting and having suicidal thoughts and having nightmares everyday JUST so I can avoid withdrawal. It just doesn't seem worth it to me.
I still believe, even if you take this prescription drug, you're going to have to face the mental withdrawal at some point. There is no way to avoid that.
I don't know how it's going to prevent a heavy smoker from lighting up when they enter a bar full of smokers.
To me, it just doesn't seem to face your triggers of everyday life.
It just makes you not like smoking because you aren't getting anything from it, "the fix." But if you're getting sick from it at the same time, you wouldn't be smoking anyways, so you'll probably just stop taking it. Then you'll go back to smoking because you'll be going through withdrawal. The vicious cycle continues.
So until they come up with a drug that doesn't have the effects as this one, I don't think there is a better way to quit than cold turkey. It's just the fastest and safest way to go.
