Firstly i just want to say thank you to anyone who supported me through day 1 yesterday, wouldnt have been able to do it without this website! So thanks a million!!
Last Cig was 15/02/2012 at 10pm ish.
Ive been on Champix for 11 days and yesterday i thought was my day to give up as i wasnt really craving much in the morning and i managed all day without one of the evil buggers..But...
Last night, i had my bed time Champix pill half an hour early because ide been getting very odd dreams, not being able to sleep and waking up numerous times throughout the night.
About 15minutes after taking the pill, i felt so depressed! It was such a horribel feeling, i cryed for about an hour and then suddenly flipped into angry mode and did some out of character things!
My mum came upstairs and i cryed to her for a while and she recommended i get off the pills as she tried them a few years back and experienced the same side effects.
I havent taken my morning pill today, and ive thrown the rest away! I feel so so so much better its unbelievable, no tummy pains, no nausea, not tired and i feel alive not like a zombie!!
Ive decided on going cold turkey, and seeing if i can manage today without another cig. If i get so worked up that i "need" to have one then i think im going to try and just cut down (15-20 a day normally, cut back to 10, then 5, then 2, then hopefully none). Im hoping i dont have to do this and i can just succeed in going CT.
Sorry for the essay but i just needed to get all this off my chest, and i know every single person on this forum is very supportive and understanding as we are all or have been in the same boat.
Thanks for taking the time to read this guys!
