Still with you all.... Day 11 :)

Just a quick note to say still here, and wish you all a wonderful Christmas/New Year.

Steveh ... Have got email, plan to get together if we can, post Christmas and New Year.... as all a little complicated at the moment with shipping my little one backward/forward to the Ex over the next few days.

This is a really tricky time for me to stay quit what with all the family functions, and stresses. I must admit I have ended up drinking more to compensate for the lack of smoking over the last 3 days. I have found the best way for me, is consider my 4 year old son, the fact he does not have the need to light up first thing in the morning with a mug of coffee in the other hand. Reminding me he’s is the normal one, and I'm the recovering addict.

Take care

my story

Can't beleive it is Christmas Eve and I am reading the smoking forum looking for answers to my problem! I stopped smoking on the 28th November with the champix tablets. They are magical and work really well to stop the craving. My problem is I have the most evil gas, problem with digestion, like having a volcano in the stomach, heartburn and I can't eat anything without the burn. I hve tried comming off the champix for 4 days and still felt bad and then I felt that I needed a cigarette so took another champix which irritated the stomach , but it stopped the craving, what a dilemma.

Tommorow is Christmas dinner and I am dreading it with this awful indigestion can anyone out there give me some good advice!

I am so chuffed to have stopped smoking, and got a certificate from the no smoking clinic which was brilliant, but just wished I felt well!

You will also live longer to spend more time with him, I keep telling myself all these things too. I just stopped 28th November, my husband is still smoking it drives me nuts!!!
