just approching week 3 and feeling quite smug!

after trying and failing for over a decade to pack in smoking and going through every no smoking aid that there is on the market i discovered champix through reading this site, so i decided to give it a try and went along to the chemists no smoking clinic, it is the best thing i have ever done,i have been smoking on average 35 a day for the past 40 years so didnt think i could ever give them up, but i am just approching my third week of being smoke free,and i didnt even have any cravings, even my hacking morning cough has gone, it was midnight on the 21st feb i stubbed my last ciggie out and i am determined never ever to light another ciggie up again.

Well done. Champix did it for me as well and it will be 2 years in June. I don't get the craving even when I can smell my hubby lighting up in the garage! You are now a non smoker!

Good work! Keep it up. x

Congratulations. You are back in control - stay there! ;)

Wow, brilliant and well done you. Hope you get smugger and smugger. I don't know how much they cost nowadays but does that make you £200 better off?

I had 5 courses of Champix before it finally worked 4 years ago and not a craving in sight! Mind you I had to do some screaming and shouting to get the 5 courses over a year or so.

Congratulations keep going.

I am going to try stopping next week with Champix no i will say that again I AM STOPPING next week with Champix. I am scared because i love my fags and because of other health problems i have to stay in bed and i am in pain most of the time. But if i can ease my breathing probs a little i will at least feel more comfortable. WELL DONE I realy admire you keep it up x

Well done, it is difficult - I am on month 5 now and have to admit its taken this long to feel alive again. Cant pretend I don't want a fag from time to time but thats how it is. Take care and keep up the good work. x

almost six weeks for me non smoking, also with champix. Still getting the cravings though so I am glad to hear you are not craving at all. Good luck this time you will make it I am sure.
