Day 1 and a bit scared - Champix

Hi all,

I stumbled accross this forum last week when I was worried I would never give up! I started on Champix 13 days ago and today is my first day with no cigarettes. My experience with Champix was OK, a bit nauseous, migraines but cigarettes did taste horrible but kept going back for more, as I did when I had a cold!

Today is OK, I usually have a cirgarette first thing in the morning before leaving for work and have had nothing and feeling OK. I think I am more worried about the routine, and thinking about it, like 'now I would be going out to have a cigarette'. Would like to know how other people felt the first day... Thanks!!!

hi marta,

Well done on starting your quit, im now on day 21 and when i started i was nervous, i thought this strange so i posted on here and all the good people put my mind at rest, this really is a great place to visit daily. I struggled without the routine of smoking at first but it passes.

I have a thing about positive thinking, I truly believe it can get you through quitting and most other things in life. Others will tell you to educate yourself etc, all i will say is listen to the people on here they've been through what we have just started.

good luck

Hi Marta

good luck with your quit. There have been many successful Champix users on the forum.

Why not type Champix into the serach function and have a read at the many posts/threads which that will bring up.

Keep posting on here for support and advice etc.

Hello Marta

First a big welcome to the forum you will always find plenty of help and support on here it is a great place well done for deciding to quit it is one of the best decisions you will ever make

I imagine most of us felt like you do if not scared then at least apprehensive

there is no need to be scared

I also gave up with champix and like you had no real problems with it

The first few days are the worst but once nicotine out of body {3 days} it gets better you will have good and bad days we all do so just hang in there

Good Luck

Hi Marta

I am using Champix too, but am only on day 3 of taking it, so I am staying in the Day 1 folder till my final quit day at the weekend! I am trying to drop some of the "now I would be going out to have a cigarette" moments as this week goes on to try to get out of those habits. Smokes in the car went today and I've put a pile of fruity sweets in instead! Tomorrow I plan to put off the first one as long as I can.

I hope your day one has gone well :-)

Thank you, already in day 2!!

Hi,

Sorry, I haven't replied earlier but my son has been sick! Thank you so much for all your replies, very encouraging and useful.

Still going on day 2, I am amazed! The most difficult for me has been being at home today all day as my son is not well, I was very nervous about it. It has been very bad around 2-3 pm (same thing yesterday) but now I am trying to keep busy to stop thinking about it!

Sorry, no fan of Springsteen x
