  • Hi I did it with champix 11 years ago I took mine at night before bed. As I remember your supposed to not want a cigarette between 8-14 days I think it was 10 days for me. I took champix for about 3 weeks after stopping good luck

  • After trying everything else champix did it for me, that was eight years ago and I haven't looked back. A year after stopping smoking I was diagnosed with COPD and now on inhalers and doing fine. Good luck.

  • Champix is the wonder drug that finally made me quit for good after 40+ years of smoking. I cut down to 1 a day at the end of the 2 weeks, but I continued several days after to smoke a "last" cigarette just before going to bed. When my sister found this out, she went berserk & gave me a right telling off. So I stopped completely & the 5 second craving last thing at night gradually disappeared. It was so easy with Champix & I did continue to take it for a while just in case. The smell of smoke now makes me feel sick and a lot of exsmokers feel this way too. The really good thing about stopping is the unexpected feeling of euphoria, plus good health and more money in your pocket.

  • Well done. How interesting that you can't wait to start, and that they are almost insisting on you smoking for another two weeks!,, is that a kind of psychological ruse.

    All the best

  • I stopped 11 yrs ago with Champix, I found it so easy, I had stopped before my date as I didnt want to smoke. I had cut right down and was only smoking through habit not because I needed to. AS for the smell of smoke I didnt mind for ages whether they smoke near me, but now I hate it and move away from them. XX
