It's been almost 4 days since I last put Champix in my body and 18 days since I last chose to inhale all those chemicals from a lit cigarette.
The doc agreed it a good idea for me to stay away from work for a few days until the anxiety/super-assertiveness/agression passed which, was agreed very likely related to the Champix.
Happy to report these feelings have gone: super-assertiveness, anxiety, vivid distressing dreams, a little paranoia, panic sensation, aggressive thinking/behaviour. All gone
Not so happy to report I am left feeling: Major sense of being disconnected from the world, feeling out of focus to the world around me. I want to get things done but whatever it is that normally motivates me is missing. I sleep and sleep and sleep. I have a constant frontal headache and my vision is a bit blurry. My stomach still feels bloated and I can only eat snacks. Full plate of grub makes me barf at the sight of it. I find myself standing in my flat sometimes thinking what am I doing next?
Where has all my motivation gone?
Is this what life is like as a non smoker? If it's not then please tell me what life is supposed to be like for a non smoker?
I'm feeling much more tired, flat and fuzzy minded than I did pre-quit. And yes, I will speak to my GP about it.
I'm just not feeling very happy today, what can I say...
