I was a long term (40 yrs), heavy smoker (50 plus daily), attempting Champix for the 4th time. This time, instead of giving up after a week I persevered to let my body get used to & settle with some side effects which encouraged me to continue. I still had side effects, other than laxatives, I struggled & coped with the rest because I was determined. After a couple of weeks I only smoked 1 a day so stopped altogether because there was just no point!
As an experienced smoker & quitter (read & tried everything), I knew most nicotine leaves the body within 72 hrs. Yay, that helps with the physical side but my biggest downfall (same as most) was the mental aspect of smoking.
Problem solved by reading, Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking then I also watched the 1 hr session on youtube. Watching reinforced all I'd learned in the book. (For a personal touch search the internet for sessions available in your area)
This really works, 1st please try Allen Carr's method as many have succeeded with this alone. 2nd give both a go and double your chance to become a happy non-smoker for the rest of your life.......
