    That's great Tim. I am so glad that the pills are working for you. Also be aware , that while these pills may make smoking unenjoyable at the moment , and the nicotine addiction will be behind you when done the 3 months, It is the psychological part of quitting that may get you in the end. Please continue to read our stories and to learn about you and cigarettes. Knowing how you became addicted to the drug, and knowing that smoking does not relieve stress or give you confidence helps to make the parting final. Make it something that you choose to do not have to do. Embrace being a non-smoker. It is a mindset.

    Champix is doing it's job.....please also do YOUR part.

    Hi Tim, If you believe you had your last smoke a week or two ago! You have made it final. You've already made up your mind and your FREE!
    Lets face up to it and declare to us, yourself and your important persons in your life that not one puff is wanted, let alone needed.
    May I remind others that smoking for 45 years And, getting up around 3 packs a day is dangerous and I'm glad you are around to warn all of us.
    Thank you Tim

    Good news time65, now its up to you to quit the tablets and provide yourself with much needed help through others on this website and by researching how addictive Nicotine can be if you take it up again. NOPE (not one puff ever)
