Good Afternoon folks,
Hope you are all doing ok today and staying focussed. I had such a bad day yesterday I almost caved in, (I was that close !) I did'nt though, Im so proud of myself really.
Bloating has gone down a bit thank the lord and I am actually feeling not to bad today, I felt like a big rolly polly for 2 days, not sure what causes that, they do say it is a side effect of Champix but it could also be the fact I am sucking on sugerfree mints all the time.
Wait for this, I just realised at 1pm today that I forgot to take my champix morning pill this morning (OMG). Only day 11 on Champix and forgot already, is that a good sign ? (I took it when I realised) The morning cigerettes were my major ones of the day, ie having 3 before I even left the house and believe it or not the morning ones are not the ones I miss the most just now, it is the ones after meals and that is when I really notice it.
For me to even get to day 4 is a mirracle and I have now proven to myself that I actually can do this. Called the doctors to get a repeat prescription of Champix, they only gave me one starter box so now he will give me a months supply. I just hope I can keep going.
I read a comment on here that if you feel like one go outside take a deep breath and breath in some fresh air and have a glass of water, it so worked !
I just keep telling myself that I am refusing to pay £6.00 + for a packet of cigerettes, I will feel more energetic eventually and I also dont have a ciggie in one hand and a lighter and ashtray in the other, they really did rule my life.
So on that positive note I wish you all well and hope that we will look back on this and realise how mad we were to smoke in the first place.
