Fabulous numbers, Chris...really great!

Unfortunately I have no advice regarding Chantix. I'm still a chain-smoking old whore  ;) .

Chris,

Congrats on the numbers; you could probably share half those CD4's and % and still be fine!  I have no info on Chantix, but there's a thread or two about it.  Just search and you should find them.  As to quitting, I did it over 16 years ago the old fashioned way - I just quit.  I'd done it numerous times prior, so all that practice paid off when I finally did quit.  ;)  Keep on doing what you're doing ('cept for the smoking).

Thunter,
ALT is a liver enzyme.It's used as a measurement of how your liver is handling meds.

Nice numbers keep up the good work. As for the Chantix goes it only controls your cravings. It contains no nicotine. It works good for some and not so good for others.

WOW!!! What a blast from the past. I was just thinking of you a couple of days ago, and wondered where you had gone off to.

Are you kidding me? Wild horses couldn't drag me away from here! I've been keeping things going to one degree or another.
Tell me....did you ever get yourself another little kitty friend? I was so sad for you when you were so sick and then you lost your kitty on top of that.
It is wonderful to see the remarkable turnaround you have made. Kudos to you old friend.  :-*   :-*  :-*
