So, after failing in every other method I have tried I finally got my Dr Surgery to give me another go on Champix - It worked before for me but a moment of stupidity set me back.
I am not officially on day 1 of my quit yet, that is tomorrow. But I have been up for 8 hours now and have not had a cigarette. i keep saying to myself that I will wait... started with bus stop, at work, tea break, lunch break. Now at second tea break of the day and am about to go for a walk. I have cigarettes in my pocket but haven't had a massive desire to have them other than at lunch time when the cravings were really bad. Last time I used Champix I had no cravings at all but last time I had cravings I gave in. This seems to be totally different.
And to those who complain about side effects, I find that taking my morning tablet with a hot drink stops me from feeling sick. The one morning I took my tablet with a cold drink I was actually sick.
Wish me luck for tomorrow (or could be today if I can keep up with the delay) and any words of encouragement or helpful tips are greatly appreciated.
