Does it get any easier? There's the title and I want to know if anyone out there can help me maintain my smoke-free existence? I am on Champix and am due to finish the course in a week's time, after which it's down to me. I have found it to be the easier option out of the many therapies, I got hooked on nicotine therapies for 2-3 years and it didn't seem to help me reach the goal I wanted (being an ex-smoker), instead I woke up every morning like a bear with a sore head before I got my fix of lozenger nicotine! Anyhoo, here I am, nearly 12 weeks in and feeling good about it, being the longest I have been smoke-free. Over the past few days though, I have started to panic a bit. It's like, the cigarette was my friend when I needed it, same with the nicotine supplement and now I'm thinking, what's life gonna' be without the Champix. Will I just stop taking it and then...puff! like magic, I'm over it? Because of the panic, I've actually thought on occasion that they feel almost like cravings and cigarettes have started to enter my mind again! I know they say, hunger pains are like cravings, emotional turmoil can be perceived as cravings, BUT has anyone any advise on how to recognise the difference? Please, anyone...can you help me out? I spent Â£400 on Champix and it would be an awful lot to waste after coming so far....thank you.
