Hi everyone, I took my first dose of Champix yesterday. Not sure what the effect is yet. I am currently coping with going back on my heart meds after a 2 week period without them (my own fault) and so going through Nicorandyl headaches and feeling worn out. So not sure if the fact that I spent most of yesterday in bed was due to Champix. Will take dose 2 at 9a.m. today so we will see what happens. Popped out just now to Tesco Express to get a few bits just in case the sleepy thing hits, but right now feeling OK. Have set my quit date as the same day I am due to step up to two tabs, but open to bringing that forward if the tabs make me feel I can do it sooner. Have been smoking on and off 40 years, off course the off periods are never as long as the on periods! But the last one was a recent year without! Then faced a bit of a personal crisis and went straight back to smoking. Am determined but nervous, when I went back to smoking I hit 20 a day real fast and the first thing I do in the morning is reach for a ciggy. Glad I found this forum, looking back at old posts it seems a very supportive place. Best wishes to all out there.
