Newbie here and I'd like to say Hi to everyone on here.

I popped on last night to read some of your stories and diaries of the stop smoking progress and they really fill me with hope!

I'm on day two of Champix so still smoking at the moment. I haven't set a quit date, my cessation nurse has just old me to aim for sometime between days 8 and 14.

My Father is also on Champix after suffering two heart attacks and struggling for the past 18 months to pack in the fags, he's done it! He's who's inspired me to do it too!

So far, all is ok, no nausea but very vivid, odd dreams!

I'll no doubt be back to chart my progress on here as I am for all my friends and family to see on Facebook too, so I have to succede!!!

Looking forward to chatting with you all! :D

Glad to hear that you have found some of the posts useful. Hopefully doing the quit with your Dad will help you both.

there are loads of people around to help you both get through the bad days and enjoy the good.

Well done for making the greatest decision of your life, and never doubt it.

Hi TBoots,

Good luck with your quit - we are all rooting for you

Oh - and it was through facebook that I heard about this site, one of my game friends mentioned it after my status update about going to my Drs for help to quit! ~xXx~


Hi Tboots

Congrats on your quit decision and I hope your Dad is doing well too!

We'll all be glad to help you out as much as we can and we try to support each other in quitting cigs!

Good luck and ask anything you'd like to!


Hi Tboots

Welcome! I am a Champixer too - it seems to be a fantastic help for a lot of people, so I wish you every success.

Keep posting!

Hi I am also using champix, on day 4 but to be honest finding that I can't finish a full cigarette at the moment so things are looking good.

I am also trying to quit again! but I realise that it is only going to be as hard as I allow it to be, so I've worked out how much money I would save in 4 months and if I manage (going to leave the money in the bank) going to use it as the deposit for a holiday for the family!!

Keep up the positive thoughts and hopefully they will be able to help get us thru.

all the best with your quit debby09

Welcome and good luck :) I found this place by accident while on my 3rd week, and really glad i did. I'm no expert as a quitter, i may make the odd longish post on here, but i'm a big fan of taking the time to make meaningful posts. I don't mind folk telling me to shush though if i'm over-positive, thats just how i am.

Wish i could share my willpower and positivity sometimes, but if i can achieve that with a forum post, i'll try. I owe it to the folk who give the same back to me, and if just one person decides to try to quit today because of something i've posted then i've achieved something more than i could ever have hoped possible, and although the attempt is then down to them, i'll still be around on the forum here to offer my support n stuff should they want it.

Good luck on your quit , i wish you all the success you want to achieve here, and look forward to seeing you progress through the days, however good/bad the experiences you may have/feel.
