I´m Vicente. Pushing 61, a pack and a half a day these last 5 years (since I retired). When I worked 2 packs a day wasn´t an unusual thing.
2 weeks on Champix/Chantix and been smoking no more than 3/ 4 a day since I started on it.
But today was my total quit day- and absolute disaster! At times it seemed I WAS fighting against my NOT wanting to smoke! Pathetic.
Bottom line: I wish I could stay for a long time on the medication, POSTPONIG QUIT DAY BUT CARRYIING ON WITH 3/4 CIGS A DAY because I DO think it works and tapers down your cravings and urges significantly. You just need some will power.... which I seem to lack!
Or is it the drug and its mind games? Or is it too early for the Champix to work its effects on whatever makes us want to smoke? Or is it I haven´t the required motivation; even though I fear the risks to y health?.
PS. My excuses for my English. I´m a Spaniard.
