Hello all, Today I start my first dose of Champix, I am anxious that I wont stop smoking with these but I have so much drive to push through I really hate being "the Smoker".
Any tips for a first timer on Champix
(I know about the possible side effects and will be monitored)
Day one again for me. I hope this time will be THE time. I find after a few days I stop having cravings but as soon as I have any alcohol I cannot control them and lose all willpower. I have a great marriage (non smoking husband) and wonderful kids and that HAS to be enough to stop this dangerous habit. Fingers crossed...
I am on day 4 and finding it hard. I haven't been sleeping much averaging 3 hours a night. Is this normal? I would like to hear the positives from people that have quit. What areas in your life have improved? Does it improve your mental health? What I have noticed is my coughing has really improved, I don't have that chesty cough anymore. My coughing was really embarrassing as I work in a contact...
I have been a long term smoker for about 20 years. I smoked on average 10-15 a day, but if I also drank alcohol, that would easily be a packet plus my normal, and I drank a lot.
This is my at least 20th quit attempt. This time it is because I am pregnant; But after the baby is born if anything is like the past then I get stressed and take it back up again.
I am here, writing this...
i’m 21 years old, I live in SA, and i’ve smoked for 5 years now,
I need help! i’ve tried quitting, i’ve failed soo many times before, but this time I really want to do it.

Hi, I had been smoking for ~17 years, & at times i was a very heavy smoker. I have been cutting back over the last month as i knew i would have to stop smoking soon (varies reasons!).
I suffer SEVERE anxiety and depression, and that has always been my biggest reason for *not* quitting. However, that aspect seriously couldn't get much worse (i am getting help for it).
I had my last cigare...
Hello and thank you for reading this post.
I am on day one. Freezing cold turkey right here.
Its the only way for me -- albeit violent and merciless. Black and White.
Here I go.
I am taking a lot of tools with me. You all (hi nice to meet you 30+ yrs of nicotine addiction).
I have exercise, a lot every day including cardio, yoga and stretch therapy. I have mediation, hydration, vi...
I am 39 years old... I have been smoking since my teens. I've "attempted" to quit a few times but never made it past a few days. My heart wasn't in it. I wasn't quitting because I wanted to. But now I am! And I WILL succeed! Cigarettes have controlled me for too long. Now I control myself! I'm tired of waking up and reaching for them before I've even opened my eyes. I'm tired of smelling so horri...
Hi everyone, it’s day 1 for me tomorrow and I’m nervous! Iv had a few failed attempt but really want to succeed. Any tips?
I've been smoking for 17 years and I am so over it. I have not enjoyed smoking for quite a long time now; probably 6 months at least. I'm just tired of feeling like crap all the time.
I have never really given quitting a real try; I always manage to find some sort of excuse not to do it (which is ridiculous!)
I read Allen Carr's book about 3 months ago and for some reason it did not resonate wi...
