I am 55 and have smoked since I was 16. (30-40 per day) My husband was also a smoker but has now gone 5 weeks without a ciggie and is on Champix with no really ill effects except disturbed sleep.
He did so well that I too am on Champix. I stopped smoking on day 8 of the tablets and I haven't had a ciggie since. That was 12 days ago. I have weird dreams, headaches and am generally irritable.
I am finding that it is getting harder, and my god I want a fag I don't want to give in as I will only be letting myself down, but I'm near snapping point, so I thought that I would join you folk for inspiration.
