  • hey,

    Try not to worry about it as i'm sure that will only make you feel worse.

    I'm not on champix so not sure I can help you as such, but I'm on day 22 and some days just seem harder then others not sure why.

    Maybe put some music on or read or munch on some carrot stick (personal fave crave squasher of mine lol)

    Hopefully things seem better for you in the morning.

    So sorry you are feeling like this but I was the same, week 2 didnt sem to bad but week 3 to 4 was awful for me. The old hands call it the terrible threes and there is a lot written about it in whyquit.com and other sites, so keep reading up on it and hold on there, you have now done 20 days which is fab, I have just entered my 30th Day so am only 10 days ahead of you, so please keep going.

    Have you downloaded a "quit counter", it really helps me as every time I sign on it comes up with the no of days,hours,mins I havent smoked, plus how many cigs I would have smoked (now 775 yuk !!!) and how much money I have saved. If you need the link let me know.

    Keep strong

  • thanks

    Thanks so much, guess it was a little cry for help, what makes me almost angry is that i am feeling like this in the first place. Constantly having to be strong. I do not want to smoke, and will not smoke, but good waiting for the day where i feel like a proper non-smoker. I do feel the moments when i think about smoking have gotten less and there are days better then others...

    Thanks for the advice....and yes there is no other option but not to smoke!!!! (just want to be at the end of the giving up thing)

    Wow 30 days seems like a life time still at the moment, day by day lol

    well done

    thanks...well day time today was fine, evening nightmare...ohhh well....no pain no gain lol

  • Hi, some days are harder than others, that is just the way it is. Sorry no magic wand just some days you have to put your head down and get through it. However I can tell you that those days get less and less, and the good days come more often.

    I have now done 12 weeks and although there are still times that I find it hard, most of the time I don't think about it at all.

    Read, read, read, educate yourself, it will really help. Know that we are all here to support and help in anyway we can, and post as often as you need.

    Tomorrow will be better.

    Good luck and stay strong.

  • Day 12 of Champix here, 3rd day smoke free.

    You guys are scaring the s**t outta me! lol!

    I reckon it's just mind over matter from this point.

    The cravings are there and have had a few real bad ones but man,

    I ain't ever going back, I swear it!

    It seems to me with focus, the cravings can become less frequent and strong.

    I ain't a slave to this death state anymore!

    Hi Andy :D

    I'm sorry you had that gad crave last night but almost three weeks done and I think that's the answer many on here have this in week three so just gwet this week done and it will get easier for you OK

    Some of it may be because you've reduced the champix but I don't think so but if it stays really difficult you can always up the dose again

    This is those sneakt B........d Nico :eek: Demons trying to lure you back they're desperate for a fix by now

    Click the bottom link in my signature and scroll down , there's a bit there about the psychological part of quitting that I think will help you as it did me

    Hi Aussmoker :D

    Day three smoke free that's great and all the nicotine is gone from your system now

    Just keep going you may not have this happen to you in week three or any other week we're all different and what one gets another doesn't of course, I never had a problem with three weeks at all but others do

    For sure most of us get some bad days but we get many more good ones Promise

    Love

  • Hang in there pal. I am sure the three week thing will pass in due time and it really should get easier from there. I know you are so ready for some good news. The thing about quitting is while we have support from our friends the climb up that mountain is done alone.
