Take the nicotine patch, so you can enjoy and embrace life, during the process of the seemingly impossible act of quiting smoking.

I cannot say that I am the first to post such information, but last night when I was watching a commercial with Kerri and Erin, I thought that it would be something easy to blog about.  Thank you for your help ladies.  Watch this commercial and really listen to it, you can read along below if you want since I typed out the information for you as well:

I figured I would analyze the information into positives and negatives and show the time line:


The first 6 seconds ( 0:00 to 0:06)

“Herb quit smoking with Chantix and support. Talk to your doctor about Chantix and a support plan that is right for you.”


The next 1 minute and 2 seconds ( 0:07 – 1:09)

“Some people have had changes in behavior, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping Chantix. If you notice, agitation, hostility, depression or changes in behavior, thinking or mood that are not typical for you, or if you develop suicidal thoughts or actions, stop taking Chantix and call your doctor right away. Talk to your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems which can get worse while taking Chantix. Some people can have allergic or have serious skin reactions to chantix, some of which can be life threatening.  If you notice swelling of the face, mouth, throat, or a rash, stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away.  Tell your doctor which medicines you are taking as they may work differently when you quit smoking.  Chantix dosing may be different if you have kidney problems.  The most common side effect is nausea.  Patients also reported trouble sleeping and vivid, unusual, or strange dreams.  Until you know how Chantix affects you, use caution while driving or operating machinery.  Chantix should not be taken with other quit smoking products.  If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, talk to your doctor before starting chantix.”  (This last sentence was not spoken but did appear on the screen)


4 seconds (from 1:10 – 1:14)

“The urges weren’t like they used to be, and that help me quit.”


6 seconds (from 1:15 – 1:21)

“Talk you your doctor to see if prescription Chantix is right for you.”

Where to begin?

I have so much to say that I do not know where to begin, but I have decided to keep this a shorter blog day.

Herb said that “the urges weren’t like they use to be, and that help me quit”

Herb no longer had the urges to smoke cigarettes,  probably because his mind was manifested with the urge that he had to kill himself or his family.  Maybe Herb is a very smart person and was taking his time to plan the perfect murder.  To plan the perfect murder in this day and age is very difficult with the advances in forensics, and I would think that a smart individual should  probably take about two or three months to get everything lined up for the perfect kill.  Coincidentally, around the time of the end of his planning, Herb realized that he did not need Chantix anymore to quit smoking and discontinued using it.  Unfortunately, this meant that Herb wasted two to three months of planning, because the urge to take someones life no longer seemed sexy to him.

This is WhatAndrewMichaelsisdoingnow telling everyone that if you have a dream to quit smoking, and as long as you can deal with changes in behavior, hostility, agitation, depressed mood,  suicidal thoughts or actions, allergic reactions, serious skin reactions, swelling of the face, swelling of the mouth,swelling of the throat,  a rash, nausea, trouble sleeping and vivid, unusual, or strange dreams…….CHANTIX MAY BE THE SOLUTION YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR, check with your doctor though.

    I wanna quit smoking so bad, and its so hard to do. Buty I refuse to take that shit based on the stuff in that commercial. I know people that tried it, and it fucked them up they had to quit using it. Some evidence to back up what you wrote. By the way, you have way too much free time on your hands.

  2. Nella, you are correct on all accounts, especially with having too much free time.

    Help! I am trapped in a house with a Chantix taking paranoid psychotic husband! On a plus note, he is in week 4 and has not smoked for 6 days…but I may get slashed up for simply suggesting that he take out the garbage and asking to go out with my girl-friends for dinner.
