This is my first post...after "lurking" for a while!!
Just thought I'd let you know how I've been getting on!
I never thought I'd go 10 days without smoking - not one little puff and I am so so so proud of myself!
I have "tried" to give up smoking a lot - and tried everything (apart from accupunture!)........I had TB a few years back and even smoked through that
Had a bash with the patches (again) a few months back.......failed......
So I read with great excitement about this new drug and thought I'd give it a whirl......
The first week I felt like poo - the morning pill made me feel really nauseous and my temper!! Blimey, it felt like PMT x 100 and I was still smoking at this stage!! short fuse was an understatement :mad:
The second week was verrry surreal.......I felt like I had been hit by a bus and felt like a lead weight and tired - boy, I could have slept for england...and quite tearful!
I was at the verge of stopping the tablets so I went back to the Dr and he did say that I was having a bum deal as far as the side effects but that they should ease....
anyway...on day 16 of taking the tablets - and I have stopped. Finito.
It's very weird, you feel like something is missing but kind of shrug it off and get on with whatever you're doing.....it's not like you've "given up" smoking at all. I just do not feel like I want or need a cirgarette and I thought I'd never hear myself say that.
So day 10 of being free. I'm more level now but feel quite tired still though when I wake up in the morning but I'm not smoking!!! YAY
