Hi 3 weeks tomorrow- I wasn't going to count days but its nice to be able to say I'm 3 weeks into it. Still on Champix, still cant go near coffee, I reduced my dosage to 1/ day, and I feel much better. I find if I don't spend time validating my cravings they become less of an event.

The last time I gave up, every time I had a craving, in my head I would go "Oh no not another craving, this is never going to end, I'm sooo unhappy blah blah blah- but I'm on to me this time!!!

I've worked out that the physical craving is a big fat nothing- its what you do with that whingeing in your head that counts.

For me, by the time I have registered that I am having a craving in my head the physical craving has actually gone. I've trained myself into thinking the words I don't smoke -instead of focusing on any discomfort-It works for me- Thanks Alan Carr.

Profound thought for the day- If the physical I want a fag cravings were as strong as you think they are- they would wake you in the middle of the night.:)

Hi Michelle

Well done you will soon be at a month. The Allen Carr book is great and so are the web sites in some of our posts, reading about the addiction helps a lot.

Wishing you loads more smoke-free weeks.



Congratz Michelle,

Yes there is a mindset which makes this quitting lark so much more doable!!

Looks like you've found in, and understand;).

Good work



Gratz on three weeks you are doing great.:) I dropped to one tab a day at 2 weeks and felt a lot better. I am now on half a tab and dont feel any difference.

Soon be one month for you ;)

Thanks for good thoughts guys

I smelled an orange today- they smell divine, what have I been missing??:)


ah man - i keep getting that. I keep smelling stuff and going "god what the hell is that - that reminds me of something" and its something that youve smelled and associated with something in your childhood but dammed if i can remember what most of them are!

its quite nostalgic getting your smell back though. like being a kid again! i love it! though i have realised just how disgusting most of london smells - lol
