Hey Fullscrew,

Welcome to the site. Congrats with your decision to stop smoking. You're definitely not the only one choosing Champix as your quit method. If you read around you'll get loads of information that other Champix quitters have posted.

Whilst you are at it you could also have a look at some of the hyperlinks that a few of us have in our sigs. We've found that no matter which method we choose to quit if it's augmented by reading and education then you're quit will get easier, will be sustainable, will lead to becoming a non smoker.

You're doing great :)



Hi Andy :)

Well done deciding to stop smoking and well done on your quit so far

I also used Champix with good results

Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members

Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathiseing with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off and Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

This link is good for the psychological part of quitting

Post often to let us know how you're doing, to rant, rave have a moan whatever you like pretty much anything goes on here OK




The moods and feelings you get this early in the quit are very normal. Sometimes you find yourself over-reacting to some of the most minor comments folk make, and even those closest to you. Doubt there is many of us that cannot relate to that... what matters is you have quit smoking, you are breaking the chains an addiction has wrapped around you for too long, and furthermore, you are choosing to regain control of your life in the way it was meant to be lived.

Good luck.


Welcome Andy

Very well done on your quit so far. I found the first week by far the worse and things got much easyer after the first few days. Just try and take things one day at a time one hour if need be but things get better really soon Honest. I smoked 40 + a day for 35 years so it can be done. Look forward to getting to know you.xxxxxx
