I can't believe I've reached 5 months smoke free today and I don't really think about smoking anymore. For those struggling I know how hard it is but you have to want to stop, for me my last chest infection was the last straw. I knew I had to stop and I am still trying to regain some lung capacity by walking daily the breathlessness is still with me and from reading stuff could take upto 9 months to regain some capacity back but I have COPD so I might not regain capacity it will be wait and see. To help me quit I used Tabex instead of champix and was really surprised that they worked so I didn't have side effects. Anyone trying to quit please stick with it. It will be the best thing you can do for your Copd.
