6 Weeks Today!!

Hello Everyone

It's 6 weeks today since I last had a cigarette :)

I have been on Champix but have decided to stop taking them as of today.

It's either that or I get divorced. They have given me HIVES!! OMG I itch n scratch all himself tells me!

I can feel them....24/7!

So after taking them for 7 week @ half strength, decided to try without them.

Can anyone tell me for how long the Champix will actually stay in my system so I can at least get a good nights sleep?
