Hi Everyone

Hi I am new to this forum and reading everyones stories has helped a lot. I am on day 4 of not smoking using champix.Was a heavy smoker around 25-30 a day and more with a glass of wine or 2. Have never tried to give up before as I am a total wimp with no will power! Was told by a periodontist that I would lose all my teeth if I continued smoking so have no choice but to quit. Have had a lot of cravings but trying to stay strong and not give in.

    Well done for making the great decision to stop smoking!

  • Hi Crystal

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on stopping smoking. :)

    Day 4, thats great, well done. You can do this. I was on Champix but they did not agree with me so im off now and on day 9 of not smoking.

    Keep on posting and letting us know how things are going whether its good bad or ugly we are all here for you.

    Take care and the very best of luck

    Its now onwards and upwards ;)

  • Thanks so much

    Thanks for all your replies and I am glad I found this forum as it really helps.

    My first 9 days on the champix when I was still smoking were awful and I was crying all the time and feeling really depressed but I decided to keep taking them and I am feeling better. Still finding it really hard not smoking,used to smoking as soon as my eyes were open in the morning so I am lying in bed a little longer and giving myself a good talking too!

    Looking forward to having some money for a change and treating my kids.

    Love and Light to everyone x

  • Hi Crystal~ I have that effect on people ;), no seriously im one of these that need to keep writing how i feel almost like a complete diary it helps me to cope.

    I have just found a place for free hypnosis downloads, i have downloaded the smoking one and it was really good, like i have said its free. I have put that info on my post within the October Group so check it out if you like.

    Anyhow good luck because together we can all do this :)

    hi hun,

    If you go onto the main page where you can the lists of all the posts ( week 1, 2, month one, two ect etc) You will see down the bottom a bit called "your reasons"

    Its nice to read through others too.
