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!
