Hi Mum, was great to see you too.

You are doing great, I'm so happy for you and proud of you :D

With the Champix, you need to follow your own instincts I think. But if it was me and having accidentally only had 1 a day for a couple of days and felt no different I think I would give it a go and see what happens.

If you do cut down to 1 a day, you can always go back to full dose if you need to. Sounds like you will be fine though.


Well done Margaret,

As Stuart says you can always go back up if you find the need.




Well done Margaret

We must be about the same Im also starting week 6 yesterday. Sorry cant give advice with the champix cos I go Ct. But They are right you can always start taking the second one if you feel the need. Let us know how you go and very good luck. Happy new year to you also. xxxxxxx



Hello and well done on week 6. That has gone really quickly. I started to cut down on the Champix around week 6 myself, I took 2 tablets one day and then 1 the next and alternated it that way. By week 8 I had cut down to half a tablet a day(cut them up) and then week 9 - nothing. I was a bit scared that once I stopped taking the tablets I would suddenly have an urge to smoke - am pleased to say it didn't happen. I have still got some in the cupboard just in case but haven't needed them. Good Luck




Your really doing fab!

Happy New Year:)
