My second day on champix

Hi there everyone, a newbie here! I received my prescription yesterday and collected straight away from chemist. I took one yesterday and one this morning, a little wave of sicky feeling came upon me maybe an hour after i took it but apart from that i feel good, i am still yet to choose the day i stop smoking yikes!!! thinking xmas eve actually as that would be day 8 i think! im already i would say not fancying one as much which could be in my head rather than tablets kicking in! anyone esle just started and still at the smoking stage? i feel terrible for smoking still but thats what ive been told! im not a heavy smoker just a very addicted one i guess.

  • Hi shiny

    Welcome. I stopped after three days on the champix - now on day 8. There are a couple of groups you can join - Champix and the december group for further support.

    The more the better. :)

  • :) Hi and Welcome Shiny-Strawberry , good luck in your quit. And keep posting and reading other peoples messages, as we are all on here to support each other. You can join the december quitters if you wish, they will look out for you too.

    Live long and prosper.

  • Hey shiny-strawberry, I know when I first started the Champix it was a funny feeling to carry on smoking when I felt I had made the decision to stop. :) If you can, try picking a day and sticking to it, it can be so easy to let the days pass you by. I was worried about my quit day as I wasnt experiencing strong side effects and still craving but when the day came it was no problem for me. Good Luck! :D

  • Thanks everyone!!
