  • Hi Chrisps,

    Well done on getting through 6 days smoke-free. Tomorrow night and you'll complete the first week, and that will feel even better:D

    Stay strong

    Well done Im glad you are feeling the way you are. My OH and me quit on champix and it really did help, I had tried a few times before and failed but Mark had never attempted to quit before and he is now 3 months quit and we are both off the champix :)

  • smokers smokers everywhere but not a puff i did take!!!

    Hi all,

    Deke = Thanks for your support, have to say i will look forward to counting the weeks and not days!!!

    Mel = Thank you also for you post, so far champix has been my best friend!! lol!!!

    Its the end (almost) of day 15 and my 6th day of not smoking and all in all i feel just fab but when i am at work its alot lot harder! Its a strange feeling really as i have no desire to smoke what so ever but out of habbit i do!! Im so used to 'popping' out when ever i want and rewarding myself with a smoke when ever i finish a task, at the moment im eating my own weight in well anything i can get my hands on to be fair, tho i have tried to put the other evil (chocolate) aside and head for the more healther options i still can't stop!!

    The other thing im finding is for the last 2 days i have been really really tired which im surprised about as i thought that stopping gradually gave you more energy! Today i have started to feel a bit spaced out again which i have not had for a good few days?!?!?! Anyone know if its this normal to feel so tired at this stage on champix??

    Other than the above, i think for the first time ever i really can see myself as a non smoker, i gave up for 3 months once but all i thought about the whole time was my next exceptable excuse to have one which clearly ended up in smoking fulltime again. This time i really feel very strongly about never ever having another ever again, not even one, nothing...... This is the biggist turn around for me, i loved my cig's now, i just don't ever want one again. Its funny tho as why is it when you smoke, you feel bad and like people are looking at you with disgust, yet, when you don't you feel like your the only person in the world who doe's not smoke, all i am seeing all day is people smoking, although most of the time i just now think its looks horrible, in fact seeing others smoke empowers me as a non smoker...strange!!!!

    Well, anyway here's to week 3.

    Thanks for reading pep's, good luck all

    Big love Chrisps x x

  • Hi Chrisps :D

    Well done almost a week smoke free that's great Big Hug for you

    It's normal to feel as you do just now I still get the odd day when I feel really tired

    The eating whatever you can lay your hands on is also normal but it will decline over time I did exactly the same but found that it eased off slowly but surely over time

    Hang in there it gets better and better the firther you go Promise

    Love

  • I was tired out at first, think it has a lot to do with your body working to clear all the yuk out plus adjusting to working a different way. Just think of it as a recovery period like when you are getting over a bad bout of flu takes a while for everything to settle down. :)
