Finally I am able to start Champix!!!


after more than a week of me chasing a prescription, I was finally able to pick it up yesterday and start the Champix.

My confidence is a bit shakey now but I am not going to let that stop me. I know it is bad for me, I know that it has to.

I think I am going to set my quit day at day 12, but I am going to wait for the medicine to start work and stop when it feels right.

Wish me luck guys.

  • All the best of luck to you, my sister has just quit using Champix and she's on day 5 of not smoking and doing really well, I think she gave up on day 12 or 13 of champix.


  • Very best of luck. You have the right idea - wait for the Champix to kick in. It was about day 12 or 13 for me..... over 10 months ago.

  • Hey Zai

    Glad you got it sorted and good luck to you :D

    As Dave said - let it do it's job and you'll know when it's time :)

    Let us now how you're doing.

  • Good luck! Read Allen Carr while you are waiting for the Champix to set in... You can borrow my copy... I'm never going to stop going on about it :)

  • Thank you

    Hi guys.Thank you for all your replies :)

    I am now on day 3 of champix and it is definately kicking in.. Let's hope it starts to work soon.

    Thanks for your offer Defrog..I actually have the book, dvd and cd from Carr, and I agree..I should definately give it another try while waiting for the champix to work.

    I will keep posting here.

    Zai :)

  • Took me 6 or 7 reads each time I stopped for a while and then went back to have 'Just One'. This time it really feels to have clicked and I don't have to worry about it anymore.

    Good luck. Keep us posted!

    Once you get your head around it, it just happens. I've been quitting on and off since Christmas 1999. I was supposed to quit when my wife quit, 5 years ago. I was gutted when I realised that she had quit so long ago as it went by so quick and could have been me.
