Hi, I'm new, my friend joined earlier today and raved about how good you all are, so i'm here for help too!
i gotta stop smoking!!! i wanna see my kids grow up, get married, have kids and who knows, even grandkids of their own, pure and simple i mean, the extra money'd be nice, as would not smelling like an ashtray, better skin, looking younger and being healthier in general, but my kids are my driving force... plus the weather's naff and i don't smoke in the house, so i'm sick of getting wet, mid july, going out for a puff!!!
over the last 2 years or so, i've lost just over 7 stone in weight, with the main thought of getting fit so i could chase the kids round... now it's time to knock the smoking on the head, next it'll be stopping bitting my nails lol
My dr is lovely, she said she'd help when i was ready to quit (had a lot of stress lately, but that's for another forum!!!), so i went back a few weeks ago and told her i was ready and she suggest Champix... they sound like a wonder drug! when she said they can aid weight loss i was asking where i signed!!!
I'm on day 8 of the champix now and have to admit i'm not totally clean yet, but i've certainly cut down... i was on about 15 a day before, and i've only had 2 today... my best day so far really struggled with the higher dose, blue, tablets this morning, i thought i was gonna throw up, but at least it stopped me wanting a ciggie for breakfast! only thing is, i've noticed i don't wanna drink coffee now either? that just me, or'd you think it's my link with smoking maybe? not looking forward to taking 2nd tablet tonight, cos don't wanna be sick, but i will do... and i'll remember not to take other medication with it tomorrow just incase! lol tmi, sorry!
So anyway, this is me, i talk too much, i'm trying to be a healthier, happier mummy and i'm sure i'll get there.... ooh, and btw, since i've been on champix (day 8 today), i've lost 7lbs, so maybe it is true?
