Hello, I am 50 years young and been smoking for most of my adult life, albeit a light smoker. I found it difficult to quit cold turkey as my husband also smokes. I saw my GP and got myself onto Champix. I have been on them for a 3.5 weeks. I have been smoke free for 8 days now and do not feel like or wish to smoke. As for side effects, sometime during 2nd week I felt down and irritable but that has passed, Ive had very faint nausea type feeling after taking tablet (taken always with food, a must!), some weird dreams, dry mouth and constipation...which I have managed in various ways. As I am so petite, I have recently halved the dosage for myself, which has settled everything down and it's still all working out fine. So far so good.
Ps. Well done to those who have quit and Good luck to those who are attempting to. Cheers
