I’m now 2 weeks down and I have spoken to my GP who was happy for me to stop the CHAMPIX which I was surprised by. For some reason, I assumed she was going to try and talk me out of it and say I can’t quit before 12 weeks is gone. She has asked me to take one pill a day and not 2 until I finish my pack. I have three days left of it.
Today it was raining in Melbourne and I woke up with a craving to go for a cigarette. One of my favourite smoking situations was during the rain, go out with a cup of hot beverage and smoke one or two before the world woke up. The craving didn’t last long but it surprised me nonetheless as I had forgotten about this favourite smoking situation. Melbourne has not been rainy these past 2 weeks.
I am still feeling depressed and my energy is shot but on a plus side, despite the crazy dreams, I am heading to sleep so much more easily and deeply. Another thing that has surprised the heck out of me is my coffee intake once i quit smoking went from 5-8 cups of coffee per day to almost no coffee. I did not realise coffee went hand in hand with my habit until I quit this time around. It never used to be like that on my previous attempts.
I am still feeling depressed and feel hopeless and despairing but I know that’s just the CHAMPIX and it will soon be over. I will make another entry in a weeks time.
