Six weeks yay!

Hi everyone

Day 42 today. Thats 6 WHOLE WEEKS. I can't remember a time when I didn't smoke for more than 6 days b4!!! Its getting easier . I've had weird smoking dreams but I think thats probably nic's way of trying to get me back on the cigs (it hasn't worked) I'm still taking the chantix and will take peoples advice about doing the full 12weeks and then tapering the dose for a further 3 or 4 weeks. I don't find others smoking in front of me tempting although I don't find it gross either. I know mentally that all the nicotine is gone f rom my body and that any urges I feel are purely in my head. Somehow knowing that,makes it easier to handle. Does anone else feel the same?

  • Hey you,

    6 weeks that is sooooo good!!!!!! Well done!

    I think when you know it is mentally and not a physical thing, it is easier to deal with, dont know why? Maybe because it goes from the feeling of NEEDING to WANTING. :confused:

    Hey who knows, but you have done so well, keep it up xxxx

  • Good on you Karen

    6 weeks is fantastic.

    Yep totally agree it is all mental now, Also other people around me doesnt bother me either.I just breath

  • Good going Kazza... I hope I get to the six week point this time, I checked my old posts and apparently I folded on day 18 last time (Back in June). So two and a half weeks is my current target...

  • Wow karen, look at you :) You're awesomely winning the war against that evil pathetic nic monster!!! I too feel stronger when I focus on the fact that anything resembling the desire for a smoke is actually just in my head as my body is totally smoke-free and knows better - it's a healthy thought and it's working, let's keep it with us!

    Go on like this, you're made of win xxx

  • Thanks everyone for your wonderfl replies( esp ciao Bella) you know who you are. I justfeel really positive at the moment. Yes,I still get the odd crave but it's nothing I can't deal with. Unfortunately the champix is causing bad indigestion at the moment but its only a temporary thing and a small price to pay for freedom! I hope everyone feels as good as this. The first 2 weeks were a bitch but its got alot easier. I don't think I could have come this far without the support of th good people on here. Thanks!:)
