Just about to enter the third week of no smoking and the 5th week on champix
Have to say that champix is very much a double edged sword for me. On the one hand it does what it claims to and I'm moving through these early weeks with relative ease; on the other hand champix side effects are trully awful. They make me feel sick; I'm thirsty all the time craving fizzy drinks like lucozade or coke! Also can't get to sleep (very restless at night time) and when I do the dreams are mad :eek: I also seem to be having a real exacerbation of an existing anxiety/depression condition. Very weepy and unable to hide my emotions. I'm certain that many of these side effects are due to nicotine withdrawal and I'm willing to stick with the champix as I suspect that the relief of stopping taking this medication may well be negated by the fact that I will then start to experience the true withdrawal cravings!!!
Still going though, still determined and so far not wavering... fingers crossed it lasts
