Went 5 months ciggie free earlier in the year. With help of Champix. Trying again after a couple months back on....Dr won't give me Champix again because I got quite depressed so trying patches this time. I think the depression was like grieving over the ciggies, felt like giving up something pleasurable, but Dr wont risk Champix again. Quit day in 2 days time. Not feeling as confident as last ti...
Hallo everyone. This is the first time I am posting anything on the site. I have been quit for 26 days. The first few weeks I have used champix and have read Allen Carr's book. It was so easy! I was extremely confident that I have done it this time. I have also kept a diary and yes there were days more difficult than others but all in all extremely easy to cope with. Then week 3 and 4 star...
I’m 7 days cold turkey today and wanted to put some thoughts in writing. To be honest the cravings have not been as strong as I thought they would be, the thing I find mostly a hinderence is the restlessness and confusion. I find myself pacing for no reason until I snap out of it and focus again. I’m starting to get a couple extra hours sleep, using breathing exercises , although I am still wakin...
On day 2 today. I have struggled terribly with getting a long term quit, I usually last a few days then when it gets too tough I cave and get cigs. So frustrated with myself and this addiction. I'm hoping with the support of other quitters I can finally free myself from this awful addiction. Looking for support and looking to give support to others.
So it’s day one of taking champix! I only took it around 3 hours ago..
I want to quit so bad and I know you have to want to quit and have the will power that the champix doesn’t do it all for you.. but I’m feeling so stressed like it’s coming to an end and I need to just quickly have another one, did anyone feel like this one day one?
I’ve set my quit date to a weeks time.
Just looking for...
Hi all. I am 49 and I have been smoking for 35 years. I am on Day 8 of Champix so just moved on to the higher dose 2mg daily, feeling a bit nauseous but nothing too bad and it is only on the morning dose that I have felt nauseous. The urge of wanting a cigarette is now fading, although I am still tempted to have one but I am going to try and hold off. My quit date is in 2 days time
33 days smoke free today it does get easier but I still find when I get stressed the cravings come back strong as ever
Its my second day today on Champix I have been a pack a day smoker for 13 years I feel I don't need one today no side affects feel great already.
I am not a smoker! I am actually trying to get some help for a dear colleague who is quitting smoking on Champix medication.
I hope it is appropriate to ask a question, otherwise please let me know and I apologize in advance.
So, my colleague has been on Champix for 7 weeks now, he told me it took 2-3 weeks to stop smoking (which I understand is a bit longer time than usual, right?...
Just reached my 6 month anniversary of my quit smoking date. I smoked 3 packs a day for 55 years and am surprised it didn't kill me.
I quit cold turkey when on a vacation in Vegas. Had lost all my money and was out of cigarettes. Only has enough cash to take a cab to the airport. Couldn't smoke in the cab, couldn't smoke in the airport, and couldn't smoke on the plane...even if I had cigarett...
