I know that I cannot possibly be the only smoking pug owner. But because of Chesty's
wellfare I have found a different way to smoke that is healthier for both me and Chesty.

I did chantix and havent had cigs in over a month, good luck!
I am deathly afraid of Chantix. I am glad that it has helped you, but I dont feel it is the right thing for me. Just incase though Kari.... here is some information that you may find useful in the future.

Chantix, chemical name varenicline, is a drug sold by Pfizer to patients who wish to quit smoking. The drug works by affecting dopamine, nicotinic and other chemical transmitters in the brain. The rationale of Chanitx is that by activating these transmitters, a smoker's craving for nicotine, and the pleasure a smoker perceives from nicotine, will be reduced.[1]

Patients taking Chantix have suffered dangerous and serious adverse side-effects. These side effects include agitation, depression, onset of psychiatric illness such as psychosis, mania, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and hallucinations.[2] Chantix may lead to the recurrence of old psychiatric illness.[3] Some patients have attempted or committed suicide.[4]Chantix patients have reported serious accidents, including car accidents, while on the drug. In early 2008 and mid 2008, FDA issued an alerts about some of these serious adverse side-effects. [5] While the rate at which these side-effects occur is not yet known, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices has reported that, by the end of 2007, Chantix accounted for more reports of serious drug adverse events in the United States than any other drug.[6]

Pfizer has been slowly admitting that these Chantix side effects occur. In November 2007, the Chantix label was updated to mention in a "post-marketing experience" section that Pfizer had received reports of depression, agitation, changes in behavior and suicide in patients taking Chantix. In January 2008, Pfizer added more information to the label about potential risks of suicidal behavior, depression and other side effects. [7]

Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. is investigating potential claims on behalf of Chantix patients. If you wish to speak to us about a potential claim or an injury caused by Chantix, please call Kathy Neuman, R.N., B.S.N. at 1-800-553-9910 or contact her via email at contact us.
Hi.... back on May 12th I decided to quit after 27 years of smoking. I asked during meditation for the strength and will power to do it and here we are 55 days later and I'm still not smoking. As a matter of fact I have tried 3 times and after the 2nd drag I get sick to my stomach. I didn't want to go the route of gums and patches because that just prolongs getting the nicotine out of your system. I also tried the ecstacy cigs and well they tasted horrible but got me through the first week of the oral fixation. I know my Piper is loving not smelling it in the car anymore :) Good Luck and stay strong!!

I dont plan on ever getting nicotine out of my system. To many benefits and too few risks. It is as apart of my life as caffeine, and no more dangerous..... it is just all the other stuff that is in a cigarette that will kill you!

For the oral fixation thing I would have just gotten an E-cig.... but good luck!!! I know that Piper is loving you all the more for it!
I smoked for over 20 years, heavily. The only thing that worked for me was chantix, it was amazing! I havent had a cigarette for over one year. I used to smoke all the time in the car with my pug. He got bladder cancer when he was 8 yrs old. He is now 12 and doing great. Money was another motivater....I was spending over $200 a month on cigs.
The mind is a powerful thing......you can do it!
Hey guys,
I never really liked the smell of cigarettes and had some trouble w/ my roommate smoking inside.
He just started using the e-cigarette and I could not believe how great it is. NO SMELL and no second hand smoke for my adorable pups! I know he gets his at getvapure.com. If you interested you should check it out. It still did not want to make me be a smoker, but it is way better than the regular stuff.
My dogs and I approved it :)
Have him also check out GoodProphets.com They have cheap kits, and for anyone who buys a kit he will give you a 30ml bottle of juice for free. Just put in the comments the strength, and flavor you want.

I have been doing this since April 29th 2009, and I am loving every bit of it :) Chesty loves it too :)
