Well my story is that I stopped smoking on the 29th October this year but something happened which I found difficult to deal with and stupidly started again on 27th November. I used Champix.
Very stupid of me and I really want to give it another go. Quitting though to me is mentally tiring and I was gaining weight very quickly which I didn't like.
The doctor's won't prescribe me Champix again due to cost - they say they will only allow people to try them once.
Last year, I quit trying to use patches and inhalator and again failed - lasted about 3 weeks.
My local Asda pharmacy offer a smoking cessation service and I don't know whether to try quit through the help of them. Really down to the fact that I didn't find the nurse at the doctor's very helpful or supportive.
I was thinking of trying lozenges and gum - has anyone tried this.
I don't know whether to do it now before Christmas or wait until the New Year. I don't want to be stressie and miserable over Christmas but at the same time I don't want to smoke.
What would you do?
P.S. Thank you to the Octoquits for still letting me in the gang!
