Hello everyone. My wife and I have decided we needed to stop smoking. 3 main reasons, health, money and our daughter. We have tried in the past and both started again not long after trying, so this time we decided we were going to go to the docs to see what help and advice they could give. I was nervous about stopping as I've been on the tabs for 25 years (I'm only 37 years old!!!) and I have been smoking 25 on a work day and 30-40 on a Saturday and Sunday. We both smoke roll-ups.
We saw the nurse last Friday, and after an hours consulation, we decided to try Champix. Is sounded good, and different from all the other things on the market that simply haven't worked (or maybe we hadn't tried hard enough). Anyway, we started the first Champix tablets on Saturday, and straight away we could both feel the effects. We have been keeping a record of the number of cigarettes we have both smoked each day and so far I have cut my number down dramatically. Sat I smoked 20 (and we had a night of drinking with my sister and her husband), Sun I smoked 14, 15 last night and so far today I have had 7 cigarettes. My wife has halved her cigarettes.
We start on 2 0.5mg tablets today, so all I was looking for are numbers on how many people managed to quit on Champix, and how long people were on Champix before they quit. I have read a lot on line about the horrors of the drug, but after reading experiences on this forum I do feel a lot better. Oh, one other thing, should you drive on these?
