Hi all, glad I found this site. Hope I'm posting in the right place. After smoking for 35 years (and I'm not even 50 yet) I think I'm ready to quit. Been debating about it for the last few years. Well, I finally made the call and went to the NHS stop smoking clinic and started on Champix. The day before starting it I cut down to half my usual 25-30 smokes, by marking down each one and making myself wait at least an hour.
Today is the start of day 6. I was kind of disapointed this morning as I had 5 in an hour!! Don't know what happened just thought I was going to go completely back to it YIKES!! But, I think an hour has passed since and I'm going back to how I was the last few days. Has this happened to any of you?
So, I haven't really smoked less than I did the day before I started the pills, when I started to try and slow myself down
Think the counseling helps, unfortunately I'll be leaving soon to be with family for a few months so I won't be able to go. That is a scary thought! Although my friend also recently quit so I guess I'll have her to lean on
Anyhow, hopefully I'll be able to check in with you all and get some inspiration.
have a lovely day
