10 days ago I started on Champix to quit smoking. I have tried Champix in the past with no luck due to nausea but after failed attempts of cutting down, cold turkey and NRT over the past few months I’d had enough and took my first tablet 10 days ago.
This time on Champix I’ve made sure I have something to eat before having my morning and evening tablet and the nausea is almost no...
I gave up smoking with Patches and Gum 18 days ago.
I read Allen Carr’s easy way and for the past 5 days it was easy enough to go cold turkey.

I have just had enough of this habit consuming my life
Hi guys tomorrow is the day I’m stopping this habit. I have thrown out all cigarettes and everything. I’m a little bit nervous because my previous attempts have failed. But I really want to stop this habit.

My main reason behind smoking is low confidence,self-doubt, hypothetical pressure and self created negativ...
I’m having major surgery soon and I want everything to go smooth so I’m going to try and give up smoking.
