this is my first time on a forum and my second time trying to stop smoking with the help of Champix. It worked for me before and I'm hoping it does again, this time I wont fall for "one wee puff will be fine" Having lost a parent and now a close friend to cancer, I live every day scared that I will be next. I have a lovely family and a new grandchild, so everything to live for. In previous attempts, and there have been many, I struggle with the mental attitude, or lack of!! Patches, Champix etc etc have helped with the nicotine cravings, but the psychological side is a different story. It is hard to explain when you know how bad smoking is and how there is nothing at all to recommend it, but the thought of never having another cigarette scares me. I am hoping the thought of an early death will scare me more.
