day 1!

Well i have done it! I have stopped smoking today! I am on day 9 of Champix and ciggies didn't hit the spot during the last few days, though I kept trying...

Have been really anxious about quitting as it is not my first attempt ( More like 4th!) and have always become very down and thinking that life would be normal again if I could just have a ciggie. Have done lost of reading this time, taking the Champix and am now actually feeling very, very excited! I don't smoke any more and never will again!!! Bit surpised I feel like this I am a born worrier! Has anyone else had this?

Have got to pick up my son from playschool now and can't wait to get out and smell the fresh air!!! Whats wrong with me?

Any advice would be very much appreciated, really feeling very strange... but happy

  • Hi and well done, to feel so good on day 1 can only be good. Some people find stopping smoking easier than others you maybe one of those lucky people. Just don't count your chickens yet, one day at a time and keep letting us know how you are getting on.

  • 1st day how exciting. I started out on Champix and without it I would never have given up, however it does take a lot of will power too.

    You are doing really well, and stats show it takes on average 4 attempts to give up so do not worry about that.

    This is a great thread regarding Champix:
