Hi to all who reads me,
New to the site, and glad such forum exists as i have not long returned from the stop smoking nurse with my second script for Champix which i am very impressed with.
I started the Champix a week ago Monday (9/2/09) and i chose my stop day as day 10 which was yesterday (Wed 18th) but i actually didn't have any desire to buy any on Tuesday when i fiished a pack after lunch.
I haven't found it difficult at all so far but i have to say i have been so fed up and have felt so very trapped by the addiction to the chemical side of smoking and also the deadly 'routine' that is ingrained into my life after all these yrs of puffing away.
I did expect to feel the 'pull' of addiction on the 'ritual ciggies' which for me are the morning ciggy with the cup of tea and the one i will probably always miss.....the one after dinner.
So it's been 2 and a half days for me now and i feel really confident and not feeling stressed/anxious/irritable or otherwise.
I am very fortunate to not have any of the cr@ppy side effects that Champix seem to give to a good percentage of ppl, it does make for a smoother ride but i better not jinx myself..............
Anyway through fear of rambling tara for now........
