Hi fellow quitters
How is everyone today?
The Cold Turkey trip is much more pleasant for me than the Champix trip thank you very muchly
Had a few days off work whilst I recovered from a mini-mental-breakdown (thank you GP) and my system is now free of Champix, if what my cessation nurse said was accurate 3 to 4 days to leave your system.
I can honestly say the disconnected feeling I had is almost gone, my vision has improved less blurry, my appetite is back good again, I don't feel near as shakey and nervous as I did a few days ago and any dreams I have are just normal ones, the kind you can't really remember in the morning which, don't keep you half awake all night. I went through a couple of days catching up with lost sleep and my sleep pattern is back to it's old "shift worker way" I know so well
Other than headaches caused by "no choice passive smoking" at work I feel pretty good all things considered The odd memory craving causing a wee bit agitation but it's over in a few seconds.
So day 21 not smoked a cigarette (now cold turkey) and I am convinced I will never smoke again. My motivator is "Why would I want to go through all this again"? No thank you! Get to have a ramble and rant at my cessation group tonight that should be interesting.
Champix did switch off my desire to smoke at a price, no doubt about it, but I did the rest myself and so can you. Hang in there.
