Day 4 No smoking Day 15 on Champix

Well thats it, the first and worst days are passed, I really thought I was going to go mad yesterday I was having cravings more and more as the day went by but remembered from a previous CT quit that it all hit me on Day 3 then too so just drowned myself with water and kept really busy. I was rather impressed that I only snapped once at my partner and the receptionist at the doctors (apologised straight away to both, feel like I cant help it!) but have decided to do some form of weight training to get rid of the excess adrenaline so Im not causing arguments so I can release it.

Today has been fine, no cravings at all so far, shoulders a bit tight so going to do some exercise to relax in a bit, things planned with the kids this afternoon.

Definately eating more which is a plus as Im a skinny minny and it seems to be having a plus effect on my mood (blood sugar levels I presume).

All in all really good, the champix has been a god send and has really worked for me. The only side effects I have experienced (excess gas, either knackered and sleeping like a log or slight insomnia, mood up and down) are side-effects from quitting smoking not the Champix. The nicotine is now out of my system completely so just have to work on my subconscious now. I know I will still be hit with craves and that I need to stay on my guard but tha hard bit imo is done and im sooooooo pleased :D

  • Well done on day 4. Keep at it you will soon have you first week done.

  • Well done

    You sound really positive and pleased with your self, which of course you should be. Keep it going! The champix I found really good too.:)

  • Thank you for your replies, day 5 has been a breeze, chilled out this morning and been out and about all afternoon.

    Im still more snippy and tense and having wee low 5 minutes now and again but what Im finding strange is that I dont automatically think of cigarettes in these situations, they dont seem to automatically trigger a craving as usually happened on previous quits, it must be the Champix. Although Im running out of fizzy cola bottles :eek: lol.

  • Day 5 and doing brilliantly. Great stuff Angie.

    Fizzy cola bottles....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm:) Excellent choice.

    Here's to day 6 :D

  • Day 6

    Thank you Dippy :D

    I am a cleaning MACHINE!! ;) lol. Kept really busy today, ate cookies and generally stuffed my face while running around the house with a feather duster and only occasionally sniping at my 2 daughters or partner who have been trying to stay out my way all week, all in all been a great day! Has anyone else found that they are much more opinionated?? I know its a bit strange but I can't seem to keep my gob shut rather than smile sweetly like usual and nod my head. Im sure I will chill out a bit soon lol.

  • Ha haaaaaa yes Angie. I know what you mean. I suddenly felt all powerful......so in control because of the wonderful thing I was/am succeeding in doing. I think along with that success comes so many positive personal things.....amongst which is suddenly feeling that our opinions matter. That we are credible...strong people. Enjoy it. Proud of you.
