Day 5 -

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all doing ok and feeling strong. I'm on day 5 today and today has been fine - I haven't even shouted at anyone! Something I read on another post though that sounded familiar - thoughts along the line of actually, I don't want to give up smoking!! It's happened twice today although no strong cravings thankfully.

I have to say I cannot tolerate inactivity or boredom for a second. The minute I have nothing to do or I have to wait for something I can feel my old self reaching for the baccy. I've gone into a bit of a cleaning frenzy - even when I'm on the phone I wiping something down!!! I feel quite hyped up but that may be the champix.

Anyway, heading for one week and I can honestly say things are not as bad as I thought!

How's everyone else doing?

Hi Siana

I felt hyper for about a week and a half - put it down to being chuffed with myself combined with the champix. The flat was the cleanest it's been for years but sad to say it's worn off now :o I was terrified of quitting and becoming a non smoker because I thought I'd change and that was on my mind for a while after I quit - niggly thoughts of 'I don't want to do this' but it does pass and even now when I have bad days I'm still happy to be a non smoker!!

Well done on your five days you're doing great :)
