Thank you Champix

Hi all. Started Champix 28th July and by day 3 on just 1 x half mg per day I was already going off the weeds. Set my date for last puff as last Sunday night. Had a couple of puffs sunday morning then chucked the fag away. Yuk! I dont want that I said and had no more that day. Have had the feeling of being deprived of something and that has made me have the odd single puff over the last couple of days but as soon as I have that one puff I remember how horrible it tatses. I too have realised that I MUST take the pill WITH food or I will feel sick. Only had one strange dream in the first couple of days. Feeling a little lazy and lethargic when I sit down but once I get going no probs. Minor mood swings but generally a much calmer happier person. One other side effect I have had to see my Pharmacist about though is that from being regular as clockwork I have got bunged up since taking CHampix (if you know what I mean). Just wanna get MOVING again!!!. Still gonna stick with it as its amazing how quickly it put me off smoking and as with one oy the other members if I do think about cigs at all the thought very soon passes and does not get the chance to become a craving as it dissappears before that.:D

  • Ah susie,

    This is the thread we missed last night because of the quiz :D hehehe was fun wasn't it?

    Glad the champix is doing as it should for you x x

    Maybe some dried apricots will help with both breaking the habbit and getting things *moving* :D (mathematitions work it out with a pencil!)

    I have that trouble quite often but i refuse to take any meds they prescribe me!! I tried prune juice once and it was just once 'cos it is vile!!! Grape juice is nice and helps too.

    Anyway i am rambling again!!

    Keep up the good work and keep posting
