Team 10

Hey guys

Still here - nearing the 3 completed months mark and Champix free (for the past 5 days). I just stopped as I was forgetting to take the pill altogether.

BUT - I suffered the most massive urge since day 1 - two days ago. I am not sure if it is Champix-related (i.e. I am not on it) or just psychosomatic (i.e. I know I am not on it).......but it was really bad - I kept thinnking obsessively that I wanted to smoke for over 24 hours constantly with no respite. Do not get me wrong, not fancying it as such but wanting it bad - makes sense?

I kept arguing with myself (used the "so-what?" technique) and am glad it is now over. Today I am still not smoking though.

Hope you are all well xxx

    Hi Cat - Yes it does - same thing happened with me when I stopped using the patches two weeks ago - all right now though.

    I'm fine - only two days to go and I will have reached 80 days and next Monday 21st I will have done 3 months smoke free - sounds like a prison sentence doesn't it without the bars only with a nicer outcome.:D:D

    Glad to hear your still not smoking even after finishing the Champix. Well done.:):cool:

    Hope everyone else is okay. Haven't heard from dave08, lorraine, debsblair, hadders, want2win, lizzyrob or bitwobbly lately (unless I have missed some posts).

  • Hey Jan!

    So glad you are doing so well! Also relieved it isn't just me (the massive big urge) it almost felt like I was back to day 1 again eeek! We are stars :)

    I am sure the others are lurking. Where are you all?

    It certainly did feel like Day 1 again then but we are over it now and may it long continue (not day 1, but the fact we are over it). Hope that makes sense:rolleyes:

    It feels really strange on here today. Seems like we are the only two in Team 10 who are posting at the moment.:( I could be wrong though.

  • hi all, reporting in.

    4th day off champix, after taking half a pill for a week and doing ok

    im not craving as such :confused:just urges i think! but prob due to fact im not taking anything , mind playing tricks!!

    anyway im addicted to bloody airways chewing gum now !! ;)

    i see the forum is nice and peaceful this week :eek:

    hope everyones ok

  • Hi Jude/Cat/Jan,

    Glad to see we are all still here and doing good.

    I have been off Champix for over a month now and like the rest of you have the occasional urge - but I've come too far to give in now.

    As for the peaceful forum situation... WELL!

    It makes you wonder about the motives of some people....:confused:

    I'm staying well clear this time!!!:p

  • hi hunky.

    you had better keep clear :D!! be good !

    i dont know who anyone is !! :confused: too many names :confused:

    xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Jude/cword -

    I think i am over the worst of the urges - I definitively think they have to do with the Champix cessation but they are bearable.

    BUT - I miss the dreams....

    So you will be moving room before me - enjoy the weekend and see you soon in the 4th month (!!!!) thread :)
