Day 6 & Cracking up

Day 6 now & the champix are helping but yesterday was one of the lowest. I'm tired all the time but cant sleep in the morning. up at 5am again. As for been ratty (its a wonder I aint grown a tail & fur)!! My husband gave up 6 month ago without any probs but because i'm ratty he's suggesting I have a fag!! I dont think i'll succeed with this. I know i'm been off but cant help it, perhaps i've taken too much on at once, dieting, giving up smoking & on pain killers (which dont seem to work)! for osteo-arthritis.:mad:

  • Hey, hang on in there! Ignore your husband. Just because he gave up with no problems it doesn't mean that you will. Every individual is different and goes through different things at different times. As for his suggestion of having a fag, tell him to get lost! He's being a typical man in that he just doesn't want to handle your moods and it's too much effort to just give you some support. It's selfishness on his part. My boyfriend did exactly the same thing to me at the weekend and I caved and felt awful all weekend. I'm now back to coughing and not sleeping properly. You can do this regardless of what else is happening around you. Just keep focused on the reasons you are doing this. You don't want a smoking related disease as well as the other health problems you have.

  • thank you for that

I have never felt so tired in my whole life! Fortunately, that is all sorted now, and l am back to normal.:) As for feeling ratty, it could be the dieting which is aggravating it, and not the Champix. I must admit that they have not made me any more bad tempered than l usually am TEE HEE.:D On the other hand, my husband, when he is on a diet, is like a bear with a sore head.:eek: DO NOT let your husband sway you into smoking again, you are doing JUST GREAT.

  • hi Debsliar, im on day 4 using champix, i was told to take the evening one early coz of dreams and disturbed sleep, i take mine 6pm -7pm and have had no problems at night.

    but i am tired throughout the day, which a lot of people seem to get.
