get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i love myself as a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. lenny: oh you got here early... julia: no, i've been here all night. these are my new year's resolutions. i'm going to be the prettiest girl in all the land. lenny: then you should get to old navy's after-holiday sale. everything is up to 75% off. julia: 75% off? get out of my way!!!! get out of my way!!!! a piece of cheese. a simple act can forge a connection with the barkeep. and i'm making a metaphor for you. cheese, in this situation, equals money. just tip your bartender. ♪
