Hi Tomah!I am also a smoker.I have not had a heart attack,but I do have cardiomyopathy.I smoked for about 12 years before pregnancy,got dx'd w/ cardio about 3 months later ,then for some stupid reason,I started back up after the dx.Unfortunately,I use smoking to keep me from blowing my low-sodium diet.Excuses!Excuses!!I hope to quit one day soon!Does your cardio doc know you smoke?Mine doesn't & I've been to chicken to fess up & ask about chantix.
I have heard good things about chantix & know several people who have had success w/it.Best wishes!
