This is my 2nd day of not smoking, (27 hours actually !) lol I have been taking champix for 7 days before I stopped, my quit day was my 8th day of taking champix. I have a tight chest today and definately bloated on these tablets.
It was a huge decision to do this, 25 years of being a smoker (25 a day) and I just feel that I am getting older now and should stop, not to mention the fact that a packet of cigerettes is costing £6.00+ which is getting to the silly stage now. How bad is that !
I am having sleepless nights but when I do sleep I am having vivid dreams but that is champix and it is what is expected. I would say they are helping with cravings, I dont know what to do with my hands though and when I have a cuppa or after dinner I am still looking for my cigerettes which obviously are not there now.
So hopefully keep fingers crossed that I can keep going, I got rid of all my ashtrays and lighters, cigerettes were all done and I have none in the house from the night before my quit day.
Do you know I cant even remember me when I was a non smoker (I started when I was 21).
I am going to buy a stress ball I think, oh and I have bought a hundred weight of suger free mints. (my teeth will fall out) ! I cant chew gum though so thats a bummer !
Any support is greatly received.
