Day 3 & Counting!

Hi, newbie here. I've reached day 3 on Champix after 30 years of smoking 20 a day, and many previous attempts to give up using every method possible. Feeling ok so far except for nights sweats (but that might be just my age!!:D)

I have found a really useful app on my iphone called "My Last Cigarette" (MLC). It tracks how much money saved, effects on circulation, lung health etc. I've found it very motivating to watch my Carbon Monoxide and Nicotine levels reduce over the past few days. Might not suit everyone but worth a look.

Hi Lily :)

Well done you day 3 is really good glad to hear you feel fine

I used champix as well and had the night sweats but it wasn't my age as I was 65 and long past them HA HA

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 sympathising 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 found 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 whyquit.com/whyquit/A_Sympt...

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

Love

Marg

Thanks for the support guys - I'll log on and update daily on my non-smoking progress. I've spent lunch hour today with my head buried in a good book to avoid thinking about the usual midday fag. Going out tonite - next big challenge is to drink and not smoke:eek:
