i've been to my gp today and got the champix which i'm gonna start taking tomorrow,feeling really ready for this challenge!(hope i can still feel this positive for good!:confused: )
and i'm armed with my allan carr's "easyway to stop smoking" book and i did find it really helpful! i did manage to stop for about 3 weeks by just reading the book alone but my downfall was going out to the pub with other smoking friends & family(as you do)
i tried patches and gum prevoiusly and failed AGAIN due to the social side of things.
The best thing was i didn't start smoking regularly till i was 32!!!! and around the same time had to give up work due to back and joint problems so i think i fell into the smoking trap through boredem,depression, ect.(then after 6 years of different hospitals,injections,accupuncture,ect,ect i was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia & benign joint hypermobility,& last week arthritis(but all thats another lonnnnng story:rolleyes
Anyway just thought i'd introduce myself, and hope that i can turn to the forum & you guys for help and advice?
