NO Way Out

hi everyone..

Yep, i too am on champix and was due to stop on 11 march, however ran out of tobacco on day nine and thought 'WHY NOT' ... and here i am on day three..

I use a tip i found on forum.. 'no way out'. . when , about four or five times a day , those little suckers rear their ugly head...

my mind just snaps them shut with ... i will give myself "NO WAY OUT" to use them again... EVER..

it really is a buzz to beat the little suckers isn't it..

i have never considered it was my need to suck them.. you know that hand to mouth thing... for me it was my time out... now i take time out without the cigarettes.. and no more sucking , puffing and blowing out required...

i have given myself permission to take time out.. the cigarette is no more an excuse to take time out...

Its great to meet others in a similar points in time .. and many thanks for your posts which are giving me a spur to keep on going..

cheers jane ;)

thirty per day more than 30 years..

Woo hooo .... keep it going... beat the little demons....one minute one hour one day at a time, :D:D

Keep it up :cool:


Hi Jane, Well done on day 3 and your great attitude. Sounds like your head's in the right place to stop.

I used cigs to have a break and to relax, they were my little rewards.

At first it felt strange to sit down and not do anything. Then I remembered that I used to sew alot. So I sit down with a coffee and a sewing project now. I am making a realy lovely toilet roll holder of all things. I'm proud of it and every time I look at it, it will remind me of all the wasted time I have spent smoking.

I've never thought of telling myself NO WAY OUT so thanks, I'm going to say that to myself everytime i hear those nico:eek:deemons telling me that I used to enjoy it.

Stay strong

Hopeful x


Hi Jane you have done great and sound really possitive. I am also on champix and today is day 8 of it, my quit date is Monday so I will be following a few days behind you.


Keep up the good work guys, Champix is a really good way to help you kick the habit.

Using it myself and haven't smoked for 25 days now. :)

as i posted on the day four forum,, i have had to fight the urge for a smoke today BIG TIME..

however.... with no cigarettes for 18 kilometers.. :eek:

i resisted!!!! temptation ... my foot!!! I chose not to run and get a cigarette!!!

and realising NOW, after the urge has passed, I have just to "SAY NO WAY IN" to my old bad habit of addiction to nicotine!!!

no way in..... :cool:
