I am a serial quitter

Hello everyone this is my first post. As the title says i am a serial quitter but i am determined that this is my last quit.

I have quit 3 times before all using Champix. The first was for a year, then 5 months and the last for 4 months. I think Champix is amazing for helping you quit but my problem is i forget why i quit and ended up having just 1 and of course it leads to more.

I am now on day 9 of Champix and ive only smoked 1 today but i am going to say that tomorrow is my quit day. I actually feel quite sick thinking about smoking and dont think i will have any tonight anyway so 1 today isnt bad is it.

My reason is money more than anything but now im getting older health issues are there too.

So hear goes my last ever quit :D

    I think you answered your own question in the above. Just always stamp it in your mind that there is no such thing as "just one".

  • Hey Moony -welcome, never stop trying.

    Una is right, money is nice to save, but it's yer health that matters more than anything. Like Una says, no wheezing is great.

    I supsect she and I are a little older, when I was younger I felt I was indestructable. Now I'm 51 I know I am not!!
