I am on my 3rd attempt using champix ,!st time was 2 years ago and i quit for 7 months ,then started again because i put on too much weight ,and 2nd time was 1 year ago for 2 months,then started again ,i am now on my 3rd attempt ,but think i know what went wrong the last 2 times ,i stopped taking the champix after 1 week of quitting ,so this time i am going to take them for longer ,i do hate taking champix because i feel tired all the time and sleep lots and feel a little bit down ,but its the only thing that works for me ,so fingers crossed ,im on my 4th day of taking champix

    Hi Cad, I am day 46 after almost 50 yrs smoking a pack a day. I'm on Champix and just about had all side effects. Have dropped off pm tab (2 weeks ago) after talking with my pharmacist. You have proved you can stop by your history! And, if you happen to put on a bit of weight so what!! So go live a bit longer and go for a bike ride with your grandies and burn off any excess weight, walk your dog, do anything different that doesn't require a smoke in your hand.
    Good luck cadkenzie, use Champix as prescribed and talk to a professional (Doc, pharmacist) if you need to and before you put a ciggie in your mouth.
    Use this forum, every one on it has struggled same as you. Some less so, lucky beggars. Some even more, poor souls, but they still off 'em
