Hi everybody. Didn't want to post on the Day 1 forum but this is my first Day on Champix so I am building up to my official Day 1 on Valentine's Day (seemed appropriate - time to love myself instead of cigs). Have got loads of great advice off these forums and it has really helped me make the decision to stop. I've been on 30 a day for 30 years and still cannot quite imagine life without smoking but now I have made the decision I am almost looking forward to it! My reasons for quitting are:
I feel stupid being so dependent.
My house smells, my car smells, my clothes smell.
I feel pathetic hanging around outside buildings for a smoke.
I feel embarrassed nipping out during social occasions.
I know my kids are worried about my health.
My mum died last September of lung cancer (aged 68).
I want to feel in charge of my life.
Thanks for reading this and for all the great advice out there.
P.S. Hopefully I'll get better at using this site and manage to use the icons one day too!
