I’m on day 16 and still smoking! Today I didn’t smoke all day but have had 2 tonight. I feel like I’m failing at this and going to just keep smoking through the bad taste and not enjoying it because of the damn habit!
So I was so proud I made it to day 20 and I slipped up and brought a packet! I've had like 5 out of the packet.. I'm so angry with myself but I know I can stop again. My partner broke up with me and broke my heart.. It's so stressful because we are living together and I'm still waiting for him to move out. Everyday is a punch in the face when I see him. I can't believe I've let him get to me and ...
I'm on day 13 of being a non smoker however today I am struggling and the cravings are at their worst for the first time since quitting. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this?
So today is day 2 (12 days since starting Champix), yesterday was my quit day! Ive tried 3 times now to quit.. this time im determined. Today I only had one moment where I thought "Oh Ill just have a couple of puffs?" but i soldiered past it surprisingly.
I'm presently surprised that Champix has worked for a 3rd time.
Good luck everyone!
Has anyone used champix 3 or more times to quit? Did it work even after so many times? I'm wondering if our bodies get used to the drug and stop working as well?
Ive quit so many time and a couple of times long term and it felt great! I felt so much more heslthy and a huge weight lifted off my shoulders..

I struggle when Im at work mainly.. as s...
I slipped up this morning and brought a packet after 7 days! I had 1 and then felt so guilty.. No more!
So its day 5 of my quitting cold turkey and its also my 1st day back at work since I decided to quit.. I'm struggling so badly!!! I even went to buy a packet but thank god I had forgot to transfer $ and my payment was declined (left my phone at work so I couldn't transfer $ on the spot)
I'm on day 3 of my quoting experience. I feel like I'm grieving a long lost friend.. I miss it so much and think about it on a regular basis.
Staying strong though!
I hope you are all going well and staying strong! I'm back for the 3rd time in the past 2yrs... I started smoking again 1yr ago and now I've decided this long weekend I'm going to quit again but this time cold turkey. I keep making excuses and give in but this time I'm positive I can do it :)
Has anyone here been doing it cold turkey? How are you dealing with it?
