Day 1 of being a non smoker

Posted in Getting started 01 Dec 2012

My 1st day without a cigarette and I had all the usual fears leading up to this. But I managed ok and haven't really missed it tonight. I'm not having any side effects from Champix so that is a plus....My first attempt was with the patches and I stopped for 3 months. Fingers crossed I can quit for good this time!

    Well done Gayld for getting back on track and nailing this habit for good. we learn from previous attempts, i think it gives up knowledge and power to get back on the horse again

    Thanks everyone!! The Champix is working great; mind you this only my 3rd day of being a non smoker.

    Yesterday and today I have constantly thought about cigarettes, even going to but some, lucky I didn't have any money lol!! Will thinking about smoking ever go away?
