Hi Everyone


Hi everyone

My name is Ali and I have been using champix for 11 days now and stopped for two...

I am 32 and have Smoked for 16 years, for the last year 20 a day...:mad: I have a 2 year old son and for him and so I am around to see his children it was time...I had also started to grow pretty bored of smoking but still couldn't stop..

I think champix is a miracle drug and wish I had known about it ages ago. Only really bad side effects I have had are tiredness and my stomach is bloated...but better than smelling of smoke and having a struggle walking up flights of stairs :D

Will be using this forum a lot I am sure so hope to chat to you all soon. Its inspiring reading the stories of success....

Ali xx

Well done on 2 days smoke free just hang in there

I also quit with the help of champix and it did make it much easier for me but as with any aid you'll still need willpower as well

Best Wishes
