I wanted to let you all know how amazing you are. I decided to quit the fags (again) and got champix with some misgivings, you know how it is...! I had read everything I could find - even though I know 'Dr Google is not your friend' :eek:
... And it has been Totally Plain Sailing. I am certain that my new habit of sitting down after dinner with a cuppa and this forum has been the reason I haven't had any real craving problems!
I have spent my usual trigger times (after work; after dinner; before bed) reading posts on here. Clicking on any links and reading those. Re-reading posts which rang a bell. Searching for my symptoms on here - aluminium taste in mouth! Someone here has had it. Sleeping tooooo much! Someone's been there. Weird smells. Bleeding gums. Coughing wee gungey bits up. Being shocked and horrified realising how hair from a smoker's house smelled/how strong it smells when someone's had a "sneaky" fag. People here have been there! And survived!
I was just thanking God for this forum and thought better come on here and thank you all too. I will continue to lurk and hope I will maybe start posting and helping others if I can.
I'm quite excited to be nearly a month smoke free, hope it continues to be not an option to light up (got that here too)
Thanks everybody xx
