    Hi everyone, ive made one week smoke free! I cant tell you how pleased i am with myself. It has been so much easier than i expected. I think i put too much thought into it, was worried that the champix wouldnt work and then what was i going to do etc. I can honestly say i feel great, and am so determined to beat this addiction for good! Hope everyone else doing ok. Take care.

    I've felt so crap today. My head feels like a big fluffy cloud, but heavy and aching at the same time. I know that doesnt make sense, just putting my thoughts down on paper so to speak. I'm tired and agitated, and snapping at my husband, arrrrrgh!!! Another day closer to quit date, 3 cigs today, i hate myself everytime i have one. Anyway like chris said '1 day at a time'.

    Getting closer to my quit date. Im currently down to between 3-5 p/day from about 25. Thats an ahievement in itself. Never ever thought i could do that. I am scared about my quit date, scared aabout letting myself down......did anyone on champix just want to sleep for-ever!? I am soooo tired.
