I'm not smoking...or sleeping.

I haven't smoked since 11:58 p.m. on July 7th. Yesterday was absolutely successful and today has been as well...as far as not smoking goes.

I mentioned yesterday that there are side effects associated with Chantix (as there are with all/most other drugs.) Let me list those specifically dealing with the pill I'm currently taking:

  • nausea (30%)
  • sleep problems (trouble sleeping, or vivid, unusual, or strange dreams)
  • constipation
  • gas
  • vomiting
OK, so there's nothing on there that is too frightening. I'm currently only suffering one side-effect on that list - sleep problems.

Since I started taking this medicine on July 1st, I've been experiencing "every other day insomnia". I will sleep only every other night. And when I say INSOMNIA, I mean just that. I...can...not...sleep. Now, I know that anxiety is a primary cause for the inability to sleep. I get that (and I'm certain that I'm anxious.) It just sucks, is all.

Last night: I went to bed at 10:30 p.m., tossed for precisely 7.5 waking hours, dozed off at 6 a.m., woke at 8:15 a.m., went to work. I'm exhausted.

But a few days without sleep will not dissuade me. I will not smoke...probably because I'll be veg'd out from my lack of sleep.

Puffing away at the cigarette is always a pleasurable experience for all smoking addicts and the feeling of well-being provided by nicotine makes the users of cigarettes and other tobacco containing substances consistently addicted to the habit of smoking. But as the ill-effects of smoking show off slowly and gradually and a smoker becomes a victim to atherosclerosis, Buerger's Disease and a whole range of other smoking induced ailments, he fins no way out other than opting for the antismoking medicine Chantix .
