Firstly, I just want to thank you for being there. A BIG part of my motivation was to come back to this site and be in the quitters corner! I read a lot of posts when I first started taking Champix and got all worried about side efx etc and that started off my denial in a huge way... any way, long story short...
It's 05:50am on Monday 15 November 2010. I have already completed a tricky technical drawing, I've had a cup of coffee, some toast and downed the early champix friendly tab and ready to take on the day. Day 2 and a half to be exact!
Last night my wife commented on the amount of time she's seen me this weekend and she is really happy about that. I have been 'working' a lot over the past years in the garage where my office is. Truth is, it's my smoking den and on the odd chance I have to do some work, none of my family actually minds me bringing the laptop into the lounge (or bedroom) to do a little mail etc. I've been lying to myself and others - all for the priveledge of ruining my health, theirs, and my daughter's time with me in this life.
I can't believe I feel so good right now. I'm sure this white cloud will fade over time, but I can't believe I'd ever put one of those cigs into my mouth again under any circumstances! How could I have been so stupid for so long?
Anyhow, no time to moan. I feel great! I feel energetic! My fingers, hair and breath smell good! (Hey, I'd kiss me!)
