I can get them free from the docs but I have been to him so many times that I'm sort of feeling a bit embarrassed now!!!! I actually don't even have to pay for the script but i worry he will get annoyed with me keep asking for them + not managing to quit. So I Just buy my own. I would have been spending £35 pound anyway.

thanx debs; right back at ya! i am feeling so much more confident than I ever have when I quit before!!!!

I will have a look then in Boots - maybe it's just cos I haven't needed any yet. x x x x x :D

i think its a mixture why im not sleeping, the champix and when i used to wake up before i'd have a cig and i drink far too much tea during the day!! i know i have to cut down tea but its the only pleasure i get. i'm on champix for smoking, xenical for loosing weight!! up to now i've lost 2st 7lb since july but thursday will be my fist weighing since i've given up smoking!! :confused:

I try and avoid Boots or i end up buying Farley's Rusks stopping smoking is no problem but weaning myself off the rusks is far harder,:o

i end up buying Olay daily Facials. If i were sent to a desert island I would need them with me over anything else. I seriously am addicted to them + I think i may actually have a problem!!! lol I hope they never stop making them because i would never leave the house. I would just crawl under my duvet + stay there until the doctors came....

boots

I tend to always buy hair dye as its always on offer when i go in & i might not get it as good a value!! and i tell my hubby to think of all the points i get on my card. even tho i use them to sneakily get ellnet hairspray!!!!

Reply

I say that to my fiance but he just says that if i bought stuff from somewhere cheaper them the money would work out the same for the points you get. He just doesn't get it - he can't help it, he's male. (sorry men r great!!!! :rolleyes:) x x x :p

Reply

tell me about it!!! my hubby doesn't understand when i come home with all the bogof items. he said i'd have saved money by not buying them. Where's the fun in that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reply

there is no fun in that!!! Bogof is great + u r always stocked up too!!!!!! i love watching my points build up!!! it's much better than saving money 1st!!!!

My friend has £86 pound on her advantage card!!! Can you believe that? i spend mine everytime it gets to a fiver!!!!!

LOL Phil that is true!!! Primark is so good for buying stuff you actually dont wear just cos it was a pound! lol :D

£6 is a really good price. I too have tried so many times its embarrassing to keep saying this time i am determined, only to cave in after a few weeks.

This time I bought my NRT stuff and said to myself if I got through the first 2 weeks I would go and get mine for free .... saying that I am determined and have actually bought some of my own stuff this time as I dont like to waste money .... seems to have worked

yeah i think i prob could ask my doc now, i have got to nearly 3 weeks which is the most i've ever done but i don't want to jinx it!!!!! lol i'll still prob be unsure at the 6 month mark!!!!! x x x x :p

well i am feeling good after saturday night. I don't know if you seem my post but I went out drinking + my patch fell off dead early on + i stil didn't smoke so i'm very pleased about that. i did shout at my friend though so big apologies to her the morning after!!!!!! :rolleyes:

i never heard about champax till i came on here - miracle drug eh?

keep it up hunnie, you're doing great!!! x x x :D

i know what ya mean about the patches falling off. i aint dared have a drink yet! dont trust myself! Champix is great it's designed to block the craving in your brain & it really does work. i know i would'nt have stopped without them

usually i put them on my back + they stay put but i was in a strappy top on sat so i had to put it on my stomach so it wouldn't show + it didn't stick there.

I prob won't be having a drink for a while now so hopefully next time i go out it will be a whole lot easier than it was this weekend!!! x x :)
