After a weekend of keeping myself really busy I have finally made it to week 2
I've also cut down my Champix dose to 1/2 tablet in morning & 1/2 in evening. I was feeling jittery, spaced and generally not right in myself. Both the doctor & smoking nurse agreed that because I am so petite (not for much longer if I keep munching like I am lol!) that the 1mg dose spread over a day would probably be enough for me. I am also sleeping much better now
Starting week 2 I feel positive and healthy and strangely calm and assured about the whole thing. The acne outbreak (no doubt caused by sweating out all the nicotine) is receding and my skin looks and feels noticably better.
I'm only getting a couple of craves a day now which seem to be very easy to overcome compared to the start of my journey. No gripping NEED in my chest welling up that must be fulfilled like in the first few days. The actual smell and thought of having a cigarette at this point is not really appealing which is great.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
