Just thought I would post a quick blog to let you know how my tapering is going. Some days its really ok and other days when I get stressed I notice additional anxiety. I don't know if its because I am not taking the second pill or because I am going through a lot of life changes. I expected to have anxiety when I completely went off Chantix because I am a person who has naturally high levels of anxiety or can be on the high strung side when I am stressed! I am really chill for the most part and I think I brainwashed my self into thinking that smoking really helped me cope with stressful situations so how bad could it be for me? That was one of the big excuses I clung to so I could justify not quitting! The way I see it, I just need to incorporate something natural into my life to help me deal with stress in a more productive manner. Exercise is supposed to be really helpful in dealing with stress and keeping people on a more even keel without the use of chemicals. Just to let you all know, I am gearing up for next weeks trim down Tuesday. I will definetly have a slower start than I thought because I threw out my back and could not get an appointment with my chiropractor until Monday. Hope all is well with everyone! Send me some messages peeps!
