Hi. I'm 38 and have been smoking 20-30 cigs per day for the last 21 years. My hubby gave up smoking 3 months ago using Champix for about 3 weeks and has sailed through the process, even though I still smoke in front of him. He seems to think that I will be fine, but I think I will need some additional support, and having read many posts, I think think this forum could be my answer! My quit date is 15th Nov, I know that this is a bit early to be posting on day 1, but I will quit sooner if the tablets kick in (hopefully).
I started on Champix today, after seing the nurse yesterday and am seriously worried about my willpower. I really want to give up, I smell of fags, my house smells, the kids hate it, and I have had a cough since I had that nasty viral infection about 6 weeks ago. Half hour ago I realised I only had one rizla left and had to go out and buy more. I've only tried to give up once before, that lasted 2 weeks, and I restarted cos I found out that my hubby had restarted too. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I think this will be the toughest thing I have ever done (worse than bungee jumping and abseiling!) Thanks
