Chantix and dreams

I'm in the process of quitting smoking...or at least trying to, and my doctor prescribed Chantix. This is supposed to curb your appetite for nicotine from what I understand from the doctor. I've been smoking for a very long time so it doesn't seem to be helping, but I'm not giving up. I tried Zyban years ago and it only made me smoke more, tried the hypnotism and lit one up on my way out the door from the session. A former boss even offered me $500 to quit. Let's face it, I'm addicted, it's a way of life for me, be it a bad habit, I've been smoking for the better part of my life. I have managed to cut down quite considerably tho. I no longer smoke at work and have made a few other adjustments. Like I said, I won't quit trying to quit.
Back to the topic. Chantix. Since I've been taking this, I have been having the most vivid dreams. I haven't been able to remember my dreams in years. It's nice to have that back. So regardless if I'm able to quit or not, I would still like to keep taking the Chantix...I'm addicted to dreaming. LOL. I've had derams anywhere from jamming in a band with my favorite hockey player to taking my nerdy friends to a Rob Zombie like circus. What's really strange is that over the past few weeks I have somewhat been able to control them too. What happens is that for some reason I'll realize that I'm in a dream and start directing what I would like to happen. Talking about living in a fantasy world where you can do whatever you want, this is it. I know that I'll eventually have to stop taking the Chantix but hopefully I won't lose the dreams in the process.
