Start of week 3 for me

Hello all well its been 14 days so I am at the begging of week 3!

I passed the big test going out with my mate at the weekend got quite drunk and not a single dirty fag passed my lips!!!

However, over the last few days i have been feeling increasingly short tempered and angry. My sleep pattern is all out of whack and everything I mean everything annoys me.

Also I have noticed since I have stopped that the backs of my bottom front teeth are really sore constantly all day especially if I have a cup of tea or coffee . this is also adding to my current annoyance. I have been to the dentist and appart from a couple of root c****s I have to have caused by fillings falling out, he said my teeth are fine.

Sorry for rambling on. At this moment in time I just feel a bit alone and a bit like no one fully appreciates what I am actually going through having smoked for nearly 20 years.

FYI - I am also using champix as well

    Hi Paul

    Well done for getting this far - I'm about a week ahead of you, and also on Champix. Every time I have given up I have had problems with my teeth, so this doesn't seem unusual, and it is only temporary. Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. Just think beautiful thoughts when you start to feel angry!

    Glad to know I am not alone with the teeth thing!

    How are you finding the champix? I am loving the dreams I have been having of late lol

  • Well, some of the dreams have been interesting - but several of them have included me smoking - especially with very large and very full ashtrays! The worst thing for me on Champix is really the disturbance to my sleep - I haven't slept properly for the last month, which is really getting to me. So when I'm not having odd dreams, I am watching odd things on TV in the early hours to keep myself occupied...

    I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.

  • Hi Paul,

    Well done! You're doing great; 2 weeks completed is a great achievement.

    Just keep in mind your mood may down to being a grumpy git...not definitely caused by the smokes ;P

    In all seriousness though keep on plodding through. It will get easier...much much easier.

  • Well done for getting so far Paul! I hoope that your quit is going well :)
