I'm 19 and my names Tara. I've been smoking for around 6 years. Have had 2 serious attempts of quitting before, both CT for 2 months and 4 months.
This time around I used Champix, quit on day 5 (Last ciggy was 11pm on Thursday) and the dose doubled yesterday. I found on day 6 & 7 of using champix (when I had quit) that the number of cravings reduced, but when i got them they lasted for hours. That isn't time distortion either, I remember looking at the clock at 4pm, and still feeling the craving at 6.30pm last night!
I know of previous attempts that cravings are frequent, but dont last that long. So I have opted to stop taking Champix. I thought i would struggle as its day 3 of my quit, and i have not had any champix today. Had a few minor episodes, but i am still going strong
Have read the illustrated version of the easyway, also done alot of research. Have found a site which convinces people that smoking does not kill them or cause cancer.. i remember when i would go to them lengths too, only id convince myself!
So yep thats me no nicotine for 70 hours now!! started with champix but now CT! wish me luck xxxx
