Starting to feel in control

Morning all,

Well it's day 3 of taking the champix for me and to be honest I feel as if I am getting some control over the cigarettes.

Went out to friends last night and took the usual, bottle of wine and packet of 10 cigarettes, but found as the night was getting on that I wasn't going outside as often as usual or even when I did it was just to carry on with the conversation that I was in and not to have a cigarette. Normally on one of these nights I would easily smoke 10 but last night I came home with 7 !!:D

Don't really seem to be having any side effects with the champix but am still getting a slight headache when I have a smoke, so I am not really enjoying smoking so looks like this time I will be able to see it through:)
