Hi. I am 49. I am on my 4th day of being on champix. Still smoking but have cut back. This is my 3rd time. But previously I didn't take the full course of the tablets as I thought I was strong enough but relapsed. Stinking to the whole 6 months course this time.

    Hi Meij...Welcome .
    May I ask whether you joined a support group last time?
    While nicotine addiction is the reason most are here to conquer, there is also the psychological Habit that we came to accept in our everyday life and continued to let it rule that follows even once free of the nicotine.

    We also need to change our thoughts about smoking. We need to realize that we never chose to smoke for life. It tasted awful and we thought that there was no way we would become addicted. We were drugged and brainwashed into believing that it made us feel good. The only way it made us really believe that it felt good was because it relieved the cravings that it itself caused. Then we made more excuses. ........To celebrate, to mourn, for anxiety, for boredom.....as a reward.
    There is no wonder drug for all of that.
    You were brainwashed, and once you open your mind to that , you can change how you feel about smoking.
    Get Mad!
    Tobacco companies put more bad chemicals in for flavour, faster nicotine delivery to be competitive. . They got rich on your thousands and ill health by slowly poisoning you.
    When you can see the truth, see how you were duped and now learn that we can be stronger than nicotine., you can quit smoking.
    Champix is a drug that aids you in quitting smoking. It makes it less enjoyable while you adjust to living without a cigarette in hand. It does not do it all alone. You need to embrace the quit. Focus on the good changes, now and to come, rather than missing it. Be HAPPY you can live without it. You can choose to be FREE!
    No more will it tell you to leave in the middle of something or have your mind on nothing other than when you can get your FIX.
    Awwww, now I can concentrate.......

    What was stopping you before?
    Let's start being honest with ourselves and embrace the truth.
    The truth can set you free.
