Day 11 non smoking day 16 champix

Hi all I came across this site while i was researching Champix (I know I know i should have researched it BEFORE i started the course) I know its early days for me but i have been surprised by the comments of others on the sometimes very severe effects of champix. All i can say to people reading these posts is that the side effects appear to be very individual and dont be put off by other peoples experiences. Personally, other than some mild nausea for about an hour after taking the pills i have had no side effects at all (A little bit jealous of the wild dreams people are apparantly having lol). Maybe i still have it all to come.!!! This my point really is give it a go. I am nowhere near through the woods yet, but you dont get to 2 weeks without doing 11 days, you dont get to a month without doing 2 weeks etc etc etc..........I may need you all here at some point i hope i can rely on you...cheers in advance.

P.S. im 47 and been smoking about 15 a day for about 30 years....but no more !!!

Hi Jack

Well done on you 2 weeks, Champix wonderous stuff eh!

I like your thoughts and as I have done a month now 2 months seems easy

Hi Murph

Nice to know people are out there



Welcome Jack and well done on your quit. 11 no smoking days in fab, so nearly at the 2 week mark.

I can't comment on the Champix, didn't do it, but it sounds like it is working like a charm for you. Don't give up on the dreams thing, I did CT and still had plenty of dreams, so your time may yet come:eek:

sounds like you have your head in the right place for this quit, i would suggest you read the links in some of the sigs to help keep it that way.
