I had nausea and nightmares on champix eight years ago but I did quit. But started again after four months. So now I am taking champix again. I have stopped smoking but still feel like one quite often. I think this is the habit more then the nicatine.

Giving up is hard, staying smoke free is harder. I am now a non smoker, No one said it was going to be easy but when you see the bank balance now you wonder how you could afford to smoke. As a reward to myself I bought a new car. Loving life smoke free

I live in a small town of only 29 people. Since i quit smoking , everyone in town have commented on how well i have done. With a bit of encouragement from me, 3 more people in town have quit. Now there are only two smokers left in our town. We are all hoping that they will quit, so our whole town will be smoke free. I hope that everyone will encourage a friend to quit and beat the cigarette.
Hi people just checking in to offer my support to newbies and ongoing quitters. I been quit 3and1/2 years now and absolutely thrilled that i quit.

After I got over the fear of giving it up, the rest was easy. The worst symptom of giving up has been insomnia, initially I could get no sleep, but as the nicotine has left my system I gradually was able to get some sleep to the poin...
60 days smoke free today 😀 $750 dollars better off.
Health improving after 38 years puffing my life away.
They are just a thought now and I remind myself on how I used to cough and gasp for breath.
A poison I used to be a slave too.
It sure is a mindset thing for me.
It only seems like yesterday I posted my One Year On story & here I am into my second year already. It has gone so amazingly fast & easy peasy!
No lie though, I still feel like one every so often & the smell of someone lighting up is just wonderful but that urge lasts just a second or two & I go about my day as an ex smoker (I don't like to refer to myself as a non smoker. I believe a no...
