I'm new to the forum. I'm on Champix Day 10 today and have been given a quit date of Monday 18 March by my cessation guy.
I've been getting some usual side effects (nausea, tiredness, dreams), but hopefully nothing too severe.
The first cig of day 8 didn't provide the usual hit, and subsequent cigs didn't. I purposely didn't WANT to smoke, so instead of my usual 20, I only smoked 6. I thought it was a BINGO! moment, that the Champix was satisfying the nicotine craving whilst I dealt with the trigger/habit side.
Day 9 found me craving for cigs, which disappointed me. I ended up smoking 9 yesterday, which whilst better than normal, I found it tough.
Day 10 today - I smoked a cigarette this morning, but felt disappointed, so I haven't had one all day. I had a couple of puffs on a disposable e-cig I have lying around, but I've really found it tough and had massive cravings. To be honest, it feels like cold turkey! :eek:
Am I beating myself up too much? I know my quit date is Monday, but if I smoke, I will be wracked with guilt.... or am I just not ready on the Champix yet? :confused:
