Hi everyone, I have just signed up for this forum after finding it on google. I stopped smoking on 23rd December 2012 using Champix. 79 days and 1028 cigarettes not smoked. This is the second time that I have quit for more than a day or two and for the first 9 weeks I was feeling really good. However the past few weeks I have been really depressed.
My tummy is dreadful. The constipation and flatulence are, to put it mildly, offensive and I have been really craving badly. I was starting to wonder if it is all worth it. I have also been really tearful and moody and finding it really difficult to concentrate.
Now today stuck at home on a snow day, struggling with studying, I have succumbed and had a cigarette. I now feel so disappointed and disgusted with myself. Have I totally ruined everything? Shall I start taking champix again or some NRT to get me through this? I don't WANT to smoke - really I don't. I like smelling fresh, not being a slave to the fags and being richer. I like being able to run 5k just like that and being able to breath. I just hate feeling like this and I am sure that the family are getting fed up with me being miserable and stinky
