Every year, this day has come and gone without it meaning anything to me, BUT today it means a whole lot, cause Ive done it.... day 18 smoke free and I couldn't be happier. I am weaning myself off Champix by taking .5 tab only, every second morning and have been doing this for 1 week now and feel absolutely fine.

    So Flora...18 days ...Does that mean you're not doing the full 12 week program?

    Thanks guys. That's right Steve.....I have been on them now for a total of 5 weeks.......halved the dose at the 2.5 week mark as they were too strong for me (i am petite) , and now weaning off. I know it is not recommended to do it this way but it feels right for me. Just to add, I was never a heavy smoker however have been smoking for years, I chose to go with Champix because my husband smokes, which made it harder for me to go cold turkey. So i really needed the kick start and now i feel I have it.

    Well done Flora...oh I wish Id been a light smoker and could do the same. My wife is a heavy smoker so I know what you mean..certainly adds to the challenge but I believe will make it a stronger quit for me.
