Hi everyone, sorry if this is posted in the wrong place but I am in need of some help. I've been smoking for seventeen years now, approximately twenty a day give or take a few and I have tried all sorts to rid myself of this horrible habit. I can tell you things that I have tried; inhaler - this gave me a really sore throat and I had to stop using it, nicotine gum - tasted disgusting and it didn't work for me. Patches - these seemed to have no effect at all. Electronic cigarette - worked for about 3 months but I forgot to order parts for it (the battery's on these only last for about a six weeks before total replacement and the heating element only lasts for about four weeks) and before I knew it I was back up to twenty a day. Now my GP has recommend Champix and from what I've read it seems to be quite good in the battle (apart from a few side effects - strange dreams and the like). I picked up my first batch earlier on this evening and will be starting on them in the morning. Does anyone have any tips or advice that I can put to good use? Thanks for reading.
