Here We Go...Again!!!

After loads of failed attempts, I got myself down to my local GP, and asked for this 'Champix' that everyone's talking about. Surprise, surprise, she agreed to it!

So now I'm on day 4 of the treatment. Not stopped yet...Monday is the big day, but I'm definitely smoking less. So come Monday, I'll be looking to join a team...and looking forward to it!

Well done to all the non smokers...keep up the great work!

PS...Great site. Inspiration and encouragement galore!

hi i give up smoking 11 november using champix they were brill best thing i ever done all the best


Thanks everyone.

Don't know if it's connected to Champix, but here I am at 2am...wide awake! Unheard of! Maybe I'm just excited!


Hi Allan,

Glad you've taken the decision to stop.

It really isn't the mountain I feared it would be...so far...5 weeks in on puffers.

As lots on here say, 'If I can do it, anyone can.'

It has helped me enormously to be able to chat to the folks in this forum.

It seems to keep the original frame of mind alive and kicking, so I don't feel even close to picking up a fag. Long may it last for you and me!

All the best,



Agree with you entirely Bill. I think I'll be spending lots of time on here!


Im always here allan. its a great place.


Listen up allan

Allan i found joels reinforcement library at whyquit.com brilliant

i am now on day three and would not have made it without that website




Yep. Still aiming for Monday...so far!

Thanks for the links everyone. I'll have a wee trawl through these sites this morning.

This is day 8 of Champix. Fingers crossed!


Hi Alan,

Good luck for Monday - I too stopped smoking on Day 10 of Champix :D

I found the ciggies I had on Days 8 and 9 make me feel oh so sick:(

Not everyone is the same though I thought I'd mention it :)

I have been quit for 3 Weeks, 5 Days, 10 hours, 49 minutes and 4 seconds (26 days). I have saved £132.24 by not smoking 529 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Day, 20 hours and 5 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 17/02/2008 22:00


Well...today I've lit up twice...both of which were disgusting! The strange thing is...I've not really felt like lighting up, it seems to me it's more habit than anything else. Strange! Anyway, it's early days, but I think the heavier dose is doing something! Long may it continue.


Being a relative 'newbie' to the forum, please excuse my ignorance! I notice that the majority of forum users are able to post the hours they have quit, the cigs they haven't smoked, the money they have saved...etc. Can some kind soul tell me where that comes from. Is there a quit counter somewhere?

Thanks in advance.


There are several available on the web, but this is the one I use:


Just download it and press Ctr+F12 and it'll show in your post like this:

I have been quit for 3 Weeks, 5 Days, 20 hours, 46 minutes and 19 seconds (26 days). I have saved £134.32 by not smoking 537 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Day, 20 hours and 45 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 17/02/2008 22:00

Sorted! :)


Thanks for that Barbara. I'll download that in readiness for my last light up, which is tomorrow night...thats if I manage to keep lighting up till then. Wow...these Champix play havoc with your taste buds. It's enough to put you off smoking!
