I have been smoke free for 33 days.
I have quit taking Champix after 28 days because although it helped immensely in the beginning, recently I have suffered some rather frightening bouts of temper and was becoming unreasonably angry over nothing in particular.
I am having strong cravings now. Cravings that I didn't have, even in my first week being on Champix. It's almost like the feelings were suppressed before and I am now experiencing them for the first time.
It's not a problem as I am far enough away from my last cigarette not to want to light up but I really do feel that I have my work cut out for me now that I am going CT.
This is my second quit with Champix. My advice to anyone planning to go the full 3 months with it is to begin weaning off as soon as you can. Do it very, very slowly.. Like half a tablet every other day ..... They say Champix is not an anti depressant ... I am not sure i believe that because I felt so awful when I stopped taking it that I started smoking again within 4 weeks.
Just thought I would share...
Thanks everyone for this forum. I wish I had found you all during my last attempt!
