Well my road to becoming an ex smoker started today. I have been prescribed Champix and I thought I would start a thread to the run up to my quit day which is Saturday 17th October.
I know it's early in the day but I have made some positive steps today as I had planned to do. I set myself a goal of no more smoking in the car, my commute to work is only 15 minutes yet I always have to have a cigarette (bear in mind I have one before I leave home to get in the car) so I have taken my cigarettes and lighter out. It's not that I am cutting down, I am just trying to break that habit before quit day.
I should say at this stage I am a huge exercise fanatic, I swim a mile every morning and gym/classes or spin 5 evenings a week HOWEVER I do smoke 20-30 a day (silly really). In all fairness health due to cigarettes has not been a major factor but that is due to luck I think.
Anyway day 1 on Champix and Iâ€™ve not jumped from the roof and I have not murdered my husband so all is well.
