31 DAYS WooHoo

Posted in Staying quit 07 Aug 2016

31 Days for me. I take my champix. but just lost my job after 5 years so a bit sad today. Have 2 weeks to find work, the presure is on. So with my holiday pay , I paid for a 7 day cruise with P&O. I figure this way I wont smoke because the last thing I want to do is be looking for a place to have a ciggy on a cruise. Looking so forward to November 12. May only be able to afford to sit by the pool and read a book but what a holiday it will be. I still feel a little sick after I take champix but I found if I eat and take it with water then have a biscuit after I dont get sick. Still look for a smoke sometimes then remind myself I dont smoke anymore. The 3rd week was the worst for me. Not to bad now. Good Luck everyone

    Sorry to hear about your job but at least you are doing something positive for yourself. Congrats on your first month smoke free!

    Great going especially getting through the job loss too. I'm using Champix too and really pleased with how well it works. Cruise certainly sounds like something to look forward to and you're right. It will be far more enjoyable not being a slave to cigarettes while you're away.
