Chantix, Day One: Nausea

Since I started smoking again a couple months ago, nicotine has gotten its hooks into me pretty firmly again. Yesterday I asked my doctor to put me on Chantix again, as it has worked pretty successfully in the past to help me kick the addiction, even if a few months after I was off it I foolishly started up again each time.

When I took the pill, my first thought was, “Oh yes, I remember this.” The intense wave of nausea that struck me lasted for about five minutes, during which I fought to keep from dry-heaving. I would almost argue that this is the worst part about being on Chantix, but I still remember some of the dreams from last year.
