Hi everybody. I'm a 50 year old mum and wife with raging blood pressure who has been advised to stop smoking. Have tried in the past with the gum, the patches, acupuncture and hypnotherapy but nothing has ever worked. On day 13 of Champix today (my quit day) and want a cigarette more than ever! Over the past couple of days I've gone down from smoking about 10 a day to 2 or 3 ciggies but just can't seem to shake off these 2 or 3 ciggies!!!!!!! :mad: I want to stop for my health and the cost of the bloody things but it's like my mind won't let me. I've been smoking since I was 16 and the longest time I've ever stopped is 5 days when I was in hospital giving birth to my son! These things have totally ruled my life and I hate it. I'm going to try really hard not to smoke today and am so glad I have found this place for support. The Champix are making me feel a bit spacey and dizzy - I also have the nausea straight after taking the tablets - but what I find to be the worst symptom is that I just cannot seem to get motivated to do anything which is extremely difficult as I work fulltime - it's taking me all my time just to get out of bed. I hope this is going to get better - I've never felt so ill in my life.
