Day 16!

Hi fellow ex-smokers:D

Had a really bad day yesterday,fell out with hubby,ended up telling him to leave...he went out for an hour,came back and Id calmed down..told me since I stopped smoking iv been a nightmare to live with :eek:...

Think it could be the champix as if I really think about it I have been feeling a lot more down lately..thought I was doing ok as the irritable feelings had gone after week 1.

Anyway woke up today and felt much more positive,perhaps I just needed a good rant and cry..been back to my jolly old self,good mummy and nice wife :D.

Need to keep on the positives now as im scared of upsetting my family..anyone else had an out of character moment since you stopped? x

Hi Clare

Definitely experienced all those feelings including falling out with the OH. I have put it down to quitting and not necessarily just the Champix, I stuck with it and now off the Champix as I'd done my course. To be honest I think some of it is because I am spending more time with people instead of disappearing for a fag and surprisngly some of them irritate the sh*t out of me lol :D

Keep positive :)


Haha Sara,Im with you there...I think when the kids were playing up Id just pop out for a cig to calm down and now its like I have no escape haha..really need to think of something else to get my 5 minute breaks now and again! x


I have been irritable also. I have been on the patch and I have broke out in rashes and welts. Today I decided to not put the patch on and see if I could do it cold turkey. SO far, I am still smoke free.But, I really haven't been around my OH yet today either. We shall be in the car together soon with him smoking of course so we shall see how it goes....ppat


Hi well done on quit :), its not a champix thing it truly is just a nicodemon thing i have been hell to live with and still having my moments!!! they are getting better and fewer but i think if we looked hard enough stats would say ?% of quitters should be divorced lol.

however makes you grateful to oh's for thier understanding not sure smoking me could do same in return, however think i could defo show more compassion and patience now.
