Beware of champix. I have never had depression, anxiety or mental issues in the 50 years of my life. In about the second week of taking champix I encountered serious mental issues, depression, insomnia, anger and so many day to day issues that were way outside my normal behaviour and character .I was defamatory towards a number of people and almost ended up in court with dierectors of an ASX comp...
I am 95 days smoke free I’m feeling happy 😃 with myself
I hate myself for slipping up majorly. Had two deaths in the family and fell into minor depression and major anxiety. What is wrong with me. I knew there was no such thing as having only “one smoke”. That escalated quickly into 7-10 cigarettes a day.
The self-hate is killing me. Man I feel like crap. This is my third attempt of quitting. I cry, and I hate it but I still reach for that sickening...
I'm 57 and I have smoked for over 40 years...never thought I could ever quit, but, here I am on day 86.
I tried the patch on and off for a few weeks and it was just not working for me. The patch kept falling off and it was just a daily reminder of the trials of quitting.

There have been times when I slipped up...

I’ve been quit since August 11th but have really been struggling recently. I had a slip up in Oct where I smoked a couple of fags on a night out, but have had a bit more of a blip in the last week and feel so ashamed of myself but at the same time tempted to just kick it all in. I’ve been off work with depression for the last month and the temptation to smoke just to get that lovely nicotine rush...
