Day 9

Hi all. I am Gareth, 29 from Belfast, been smoking since i was about 13.

On day 9 now, not a puff! was on Champix for 9 days before quit day, stopped taking the champix on day 5 after stopping the fags as they do not agree with me.

Anyway, on day 9, and its one of my harder days!

Well done.Champix has a half life of 24 hours,so it will take a few days to get out of your system.This may be the reason it is hard today,4 days after your last pill

Hi all. Thanks for your replies

I made it through day nine!

Today day 10, was not to bad, but got the "one wont hurt" most of morning.

Went to my mums to help her lift some furniture, but she was not in, on the kitchen counter was a full 20 packet, i was tempted, but didnt give in.

:D

What is it about day 9??????????

well done gareth, you will get all the support you need here, you can get through this, and just think whereas smoking is always something you regret doing, giving up is something you will never regret doing, so keep it up and stay strong, charlene.:D

I have a new car to collect, that has been a major incentive, and helped me at very start. I promised myself if i could not make it 2 weeks the garage could keep my deposit, and the car.

I was on company car scheme, but have now opted out and bought my own with allowance which i pick up this week :) (On condition I stopped smoking)

So will prob buy some furry dice or something :)

Just to add, financially stopping smoking will save me a lot of money every month, but i have not used stopping smoking to buy my car. That could cause anyone serious financial problems if you did not make it!

ooooo isn't that excellent - a new car. And just think you'll never have to use Fabreeze in it or get those smelly christmas trees, or use the hoover to try and suck up all the ash, or empty impossible to get out ashtrays, or try and drive and smoke at the same time with all the smoke blowing back in the car in your face!!!

In other words you'll have a beauty of a car, with your furry dice. And I saw somewhere you can even get a furry steering wheel!!! And in the winter there's even a heated steering wheel cover!!!

Well done matey
