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 snack all day.
I allowed myself to eat what I wanted in terms of snack but starting this week I’m attempting to lose weight with Keto/low carb diet. I realise that I’m needing an outlet out of this depression and for the first time in my life I will attempt to exercise and make it stick. I love smoking so much and if it wasn’t for the consequences and the harmful chemicals, I would smoke until the day I die but I know this is not realistic and therefore I need a new “habit” and exercise seems to be the only direction I’m being pointed to internally so I will follow that.
I have also decided to go off the CHAMPIX and have made an appointment with my GP tomorrow. I’m kind of anxious she will tell me I can’t go off it and need to do the full 12 weeks which I do not want to do. I will make sure to check in next week for my weekly update. I hope to keep this page as a “journal” of my journey.
