I'm new to the forum, was looking for the effects of alcohol when taking Champix and found this. I am on Day 17 and have had most of the side effects mentioned. Was doing really well until i went out to the races with the girls at the weekend. Had a few drinks and just wanted a fag, can’t say I really needed on or enjoyed it for that matter but had to have one. Few hours in to the night and I was on the biggest downer ever, just wanted to cry and go home, became paranoid and thought I was ruining everyone’s night so I went back to the hotel early. I’d only had a few drinks and wasn’t even merry. It was horrible. Felt the same most of yesterday and that’s why I thought I’d research the effects of alcohol whilst on this drug. Thankfully I haven't had any fags since but feel like I have cheated myself and feel like I am cheat saying I’m on day 17. Wondered if anyone else had similar experiences when drinking?
