It's my first post on here (although I have been reading the forum for a while). Had my last cig Monday evening.. Things were going alright(ish). Have been thinking about cigarettes A LOT (they say people have on average 5 cravings a day? I have about 5 an hour...) over the last few days but didn't smoke. It took all my willpower. I'm 28, been smoking since I was 14 - about 20-30 cigs for the last few years. This is my second serious attempt.
Having said that, I just failed miserably Had a big argument with my partner, felt very emotional.. and just couldn't resist. I'm taking Champix. I know it's not a "wonder drug" and you still have to have the willpower but I am currently feeling like a complete failure. "If I can't even resist when taking Champix, how will I ever be able to quit?" - is what is (one of the things) going through my mind. The cigs taste horrible, but I still smoke them.
Currently wondering if I should "start over in a few weeks" or if I should continue not smoking tomorrow. I don't want to smoke but feel like I have already failed in this attempt, so what's the point?
Not sure why I am posting this - I guess I needed to get things off my chest. That, and maybe I am looking for people who can share their experience? Words of encouragement? Not sure, really. Anyway... felt good "typing" this all down. Thanks for reading
