I've finally quit the weed!

Hey guys,

Sorry its been a while since my last post. I'm currently working in Malaysia.

Well, I started on the Champix on the 19th October and planned to quit on the 29th October. Unfotunately, the stronger tablets, 1mg x 2 a day made me sick as a dog and I ended up having to have my dose reduced to 0.5mg x 2 a day.

Well, I didn't think it would work and to be honest, I didn't quit until 1st November (Day 14) but I have now been ciggie free for 3 days!

So. I've quit the fags. I am happy to report I am not grumpy, nor am I shaking with anxiety, nor pining to have that last, final fag back.

In face, quite the opposite! I'm chirpy!

I can see that I'm eating more but this may not be smoking related. I have to work UK hours in Malaysia, so I start at 4pm and finish at 1am. I am in a hotel and have an endless food supply. Anyone would eat it! Either way, I can deal with the fat when I get back.

Honest, honestly, I feel really good. I do think about it from time to time but I fully believe this more at the times I would have normally wanted one, so it's purely habitual. I don't actually need one and funnily enough, the feeling goes away and hey presto, I can deal with anything.

Anyway, back to work now but I'll see if I can get on again during the week and catch up.

Me, Happy and not smoking!

    hi Bob

    well done on your quit mate wish yo uall the luck on your road to freedom:)

  • Brilliant. You sound really up and pleased with yourself - and so you should be. Well done.

    I was sick on the bigger dose of Champix too, but it got better if I took it after food. Did that for a week and then started to cut down. Now just on half a tablet a day.

    Had the same sort of quit as you, no real problems and felt good about it

  • Well done you and what a great young age to stop. I hope you get a chance to do some reading to help you along, the more we know about the addiction to nicotine the easier it is to understand what it takes to get off it. After our signatures there are some websites these are good.

    Good luck Bob.
