Newbie and Day 2 of Champix

Hi guys, I'm new here and I'm on day 2 of Champix. I have been looking for a support group to see me through the upcoming days of agony ;) and this forum looks like just the thing.

So far so good with the Champix, feeling great, however am quite tired, but work has been difficult this week, so that could be why.

I have been smoking 20 a day for 20 years, so feel that this will be the right time to stop.

Just really wanted to introduce myself and say hi :) Is there anyone else here on Champix?

    Champix is awesome .... it took me 13 days (things do take longer at my age), but the need for a smoke just faded until I just asked myself "why bother". No looking back, I'm 8 days smoke free. That said, I'm convinced that the people here also made the difference.

    So keep taking the tablets and very soon you won't be puffing the fags.

  • Hi Wildcats, welcome to our safe haven. There are a few of us on Champix, and if you look in day 1 there are a few blogs which are very helpful.

    Good luck my love.

  • Thanks guys I appreciate the welcome, I have heard about the sickness that I might get which I have to say I am dreading, but if I can get through that I hope it will be fine :)

  • Just make sure you eat when you take the Champix and it should be ok.:)

  • Thanks Christine, yes I heard that.. I am leaving it about an hour after breakfast before I take my tablet :)

  • welcome mate, good luck from me

  • Hi Wildcats :)

    Well done on the decision to stop smoking a huge one in itself

    I also used champix to help me having over the years tried most other things with no success

    I had no problems with it although I felt a little nausea with the morning one solved by taking it a little later with a full glass of water

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