Its my Quit Day

Hi guys,

I thought I would just post back on Day 1 again as its my Quit Day and I am feeling good so far. This morning was a breeze, however I kept thinking about ciggies during my Tea Break, but I wasn't really tempted at all.

All I can say I love Champix .. I have never felt so confident about quitting in my life.. I really really hope this confidence continues :p:

What time do you call this, I was worried!! Glad it's going well and I'm loving the positive attitude. Let us know how you do as I think the first few days are hard and we are here to support you.

Good luck, buy lollipops!

Hi, Great work and great positive attitude. You've got Champix bang-on. It does help with the cravings, but not with the thinking about cigarettes! That's normal, you've been doing this for years. You're just going through a period of breaking the habit and learning new routines. The thinking about cigarettes lasted constantly for about two weeks with me before I noticed I was going for hours and hours without giving them a thought. It wasn't as if I craved a cigarette, more like I thought I should be having one.

Well done

Thanks guys, you are all great :) Sorry Christine for the delay in coming on, I was going to post this morning when I got up, but I thought posting at 6am was a bit premature haha

Sue you've hit the nail on the head, it wasn't a craving, but just a thought about having one, like I am having now as its my lunch break!! :eek:

You're spot on there Michelle, I love Champix too!!

I'm on Day 11 and still feel confident about this, which I never have before. Just think, today is the first day of the rest of your life...as a non-smoker. How good does that feel.

You are doing really well. Personally I found day 2 my hardest day so just be prepared for days 2-4 and then it will get better I promise. Keep busy.

Hi Michelle and well done for getting to day 1. Not long to go now and then it will be over and you will NEVER have to do day one again.

Take it a day at a time.

Stay strong....xx

Well done on Day One. Remember, the feelings you're feeling for cigarettes are not real cravings, Champix takes care of that. But you've still got some hard work to do in breaking the habit and association. It takes time but it does get easier.

Sign up with the Novo group, they'll be great help and you'll all be going through it together. And let us know how you keep getting on.
