Day 7

week 2 here I come. I think I have a bit of a revelation. I have been waiting for these feelings/thoughts to just disapear overnight, literally putting my life on hold for this miracle to happen. I have finally realised that this is not the case. I now know, from reading all the posts, that this is a gradual thing and I must continue using all of my willpower to abstain. I am looking at todsay with mixed emotions as I am really pleased with myself for getting this far, but in all the literature etc, it says the cravings peak again on day 7. So with that in mind, I am now in warrior mode again lol. Posting here really helps me as the OH is about as useful as a chocolate fireguard, thanks for letting me rant :eek:

Six days, 10 hours, 8 minutes and 43 seconds. 192 cigarettes not smoked, saving £53.95. Life saved: 16 hours, 0 minutes. Scarey

  • Day 7

    I haven't found today too bad really. I've been up my parents house a couple of times this week, both times they were smoking like chimneys, usually that would make me just reach for a ciggie myself, but its not really bothering me, if anything i still quite like the smell, but know if i have even one then I will be right back at the start again, and i know what I am like. So many times I have tried to give up after a while i have convinced myself that just one wont he=urt, had the one and before ling back on 30 a day, so more than anything i am determined not to have even one.

    I'm not screaming up the walls or anything. Not sure if its the Champix, but I am not gonna stop taking them until the full course, I'm too scared of starting again. I cant say that i've been this determined for so long, i think if I can stick with it, I can really do it this time :-) Besides, I've been having some really bizzare dreams whilst taking the Champix, they're great, i really enjoy them :)
