I’ll just give you a brief overview to start with. I’ve been smoking since I was 14 (23 in Oct) and I started smoking 10 a day and then it crept up to 20 and I’ve tried to quit SO many times I have tried it all; hypnotherapy, Allan Carr, patches, gum, inhalator, lozenges, spray, cold turkey, champix. Now I quit for 9 months last year using champix and it was brilliant but I got cocky further down the line on a night out around xmas and thought I could handle just having one at the pub. Turns out it was just a slope back into smoking world.
After that I was on 10 a day, better than 20 but terrible after being quit for so long. I’ve tried patches and the inhalator since then to no avail. I’m back on champix and I’m still getting cravings (on my 4th week now) and I had a meal last night and bought fags afterwards. And pretty much every time I drink I’m smoking again. It’s really annoying as the last time I used champix I had no desire whatsoever but to quit so I’m not sure if it’s my antidepressants interfering with champix this second time around as the first time I wasn’t taking them.
Anyone had a similar situation?
