I’m now 2 weeks down and I have spoken to my GP who was happy for me to stop the CHAMPIX which I was surprised by. For some reason, I assumed she was going to try and talk me out of it and say I can’t quit before 12 weeks is gone. She has asked me to take one pill a day and not 2 until I finish my pack.

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...

Third week on champix and I’m still smoking (quitting in one day) and I have horrible tummy upset and nausea.
Is this normal?
