Day 2

Hi all

Back again after my last attempt 2 years ago ended after 2 weeks when I was doing so well.

Now on Champix, day 12 on the tablets and day 2 completely cig free. Very determined to stop this time but struggling with Champix, the side effects are horrible. Dont know how long I can cope with the sickness, but at least it keeps my mind of the cigs!! :rolleyes:

Cravings are non existent, but the sickness, headache, heartburn, etc, etc make up for it.

Have smoking friends coming for dinner tonight and OH has still not quit (has clinic appointment this week) so it will be a bit of a test.

Hi Lorna :)

Well done day 2 smokefree just hang in there it gets better very soon

I also used champix but didn't ahve the side effects apart from a little nausea first thing in thew moring solved by taking later

The side effects you're having are very usual but if they persist see the Dr who should be able to help with that OK

If the smoke from your friends and OH start to get to you could you maybe leave the room for a few minutes have a word with OH and ask him to stop anyone following you it would just give you a little space if needed

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 whyquit.com and woofmang.com 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




Thx Marg

Felt really rough this morning, had decided to stop the Champix and go cold turkey again. But feel fine now so no doubt I will pop the next pill at 7 tonight.

OH is being great, keeps well out of my way when he smokes and is cutting down loads before his stop date.

Bought myself some chocs for when they all leave me to go for a cig tonight...;)

Cheers for the welcome and looking forward to joining the week 3 forum this time.

Hi Lorna :)

I'm so pleased your OH is so supportive and keeps his smoke away from you also that he's already cut down on his own smoking

Sorry you felt rough this morning but pleased you feel OK now though

try and stick with it as the champix really will help you through and usually the sickness etc doesn't last long but of course it it persistes see the Dr about it

Enjoy the chocs when the others have their fags :D :D remember the nicotine will all be out of your system after today as well




Keep at it Lorna. I don't take Champix myself, but have heard really good reports about it. The one thing that has been mentioned though is that many people find that taking it with food helps with the nausea and sickness.

Enjoy your choccies tonight :)
