Today is the day! I've been taking Champix for the last 7 days and today is my quit day. So far it has been working great, whenever I light up and inhale I don't get any feeling from it, so why light up?
I've only smoked 3-4 the last view days, down from 25. My biggest downfall is that my husband continues to smoke. We've always smoked outside and just knowing he is going in the garden gives m...
KEEP A LIST of reasons why you are quitting. Mine is typed and is three pages long.
When you are having a craving, you have two choices: have a cigarette or don't have one. Make the better choice!
I'm struggling to stop smoking. I stopped yesterday but started again this morning and have had two or three today.I'm planning on stopping again tomorrow and am determined this time to follow through. I know that the most important thing I have to do is get through those intense urges, especially the morning ones, which I can do by allowing the urge to pass, and distract myself by carryin...
It isn't easy, but Champix certainly helped me. I have been a smoker for over 40 years and always thought giving up would be too hard after a couple of half assed tries. I finally tried Champix last year and have now clocked over 200 days smoke free. It really is worth a try.
I agree that it increases your appetite and that sleeping is a bit harder, but the eating urge only lasted for a couple...
I quit smoking on December the 16th 2016 and soon I will reach my goal of 1000 days, the first few months was difficult to overcome, yeah cold turkey!
My health is fantastic now for an old man of 60, no more coughing at night and being short winded just doing minor jobs around the house, if anyone is thinking about giving up smoking and maybe a little bit scared, just do it and surprise yourself...

I feel fine today and have brought my quit date forward to today from Saturday incase i can not sustain the champix long term. I also changed my nick name on this site away from Champix champion Champix is...
Friends calling around with out notice. I just took a couple of minutes to settle my self. For some reason I had the thought "all will be ok"."think positive ", "think positive " relax, breath slowly.
Day one and I jumped into my car after not having a cigarette since 6pm yesterday and all I can smell is stale cigarettes so to keep my self busy and not thinking of cigarettes I cleaned , vacuumed and deodorised my car from top to bottom
You are my extended family here coz trust me that I can share without hesitation on this platform that once upon a time.. I was a SMOKER.
Yes I had no courage to socially admit to my family and friends (except the smoker company).
I always wanted to quit and this portal has helped me to stay connected and motivated as I can share my joy of quitting which I couldn't otherwise anyw...
Staying quit is the hardest part for me.
I had to reset my quit date.
17/6/19 12pm, 20 hours and 54 minutes.
Im trying not to beat myself up over my setback, and i called the quitline and have 'enrolled' myself in there program (i don't understand the quitline system) so hopefully with more support, i can stay quit this time.
Never give up on giving up.
