I cannot believe I have made it a week. Having had 2 past attempts,I can tell a strange difference in this latest attempt. I do have strange cravings but they do not haunt me all day long like previously.
I’m very depressed on CHAMPIX and feel very hopeless and despairing which I know is a result of this journey that I’m on. Strangely enough I don’t have an appetite for big meals but can sna...
I decided to quit smoking becsuse of the cost of cigarettes. After starting Champix I didn't smoke as much per day (usually I can smoke up to 20 a day) my night ones ceased and my first one I usually had when I got up of a morning was around 9.00 am instead of 6.00 pm. I maybe smoked 3-5 a day and when I smoked my last one, whenever I felt like one, I'd tell myself I didn't want one. I find tha...

After reading today’s stories a song by Queen “we are the champions” spontaneously started playing in my head. It keeps playing and I can’t get rid of it. Congrats to all my fellow quitters because to quit this addiction you’ve got to be a champion.
When I got a craving I concentrated on my breathing and found the feeling passed after 2-3 minutes.
It’s my 2nd week and while it feels easier, I’m finding the heart palpitations really awful upon waking.
I’ve been on champix for 4 weeks but non smoking for 2 week, I’ve spoken with pharmacist and she says it’s my body craving nicotine but it’s quite scary, has anyone expe...
champix side effects : dizziness And vivid dreams has gotten me! And sleeplessness because of the dreams 😅
The dizziness I think only comes as I’m still smoking (less the half my average though which is exciting for me) my quit day is meant to be tomorrow night and I’m really praying my determination stays with me !
