I am 29yrs old & have been smoking for 17yrs (eeeekkk that looks SOOO bad written down!!), Have tried cold turkey before but barely managed 3 days.
I have been taking Champix now for 13 days. I spent the 1st 10 days thinking that the tabs were not working that well, yes I had cut down from my usual 20 per day to approx 10 but was still thinking about lighting up A LOT!!
Last night I decided that I was really going to try today, but at my break in work people were all smoking so I thought "ooh maybe I do want 1?" lit it up and had maybe 2 puffs then felt really really sicky? Really glad as apart from that this will be the very 1st time in years I have not actually smoked about 15 by this time of the day!!
I have spent the last few days looking up reviews on Champix but OMG?!?!? there are sooo many & some reaaalllllyyyyy scary 1s too!! So I've decided to join this group for support & to share my own & others experiences as we all go along.
Here goes, Side effects for me: Dry mouth, Sore throat, Small amount of nausea and Tiredness.
All of these have been quite mild so maybe I am one of the lucky ones or maybe I have worse to come :eek:?!?!?!?!?
Good luck guys on your own journey to smoke free lives & I'll keep you all updated on mine!
Thanks for reading!
