  • I kept forgetting to take champix so have only taken half a tablet in the last week, the only thing i can think is i also started healthy eating last week and its all a bit much for my little brain to comprehend, or maybe that im feeling poorly, havent felt right for over a week now:/ but then again my fella said last week ive been really snappy and confrontational since my quit, i hadnt noticed till he said xxx i actually feel like im gagging for a fag, this is what happened last year and why i started again :( my brains trying to convince itself one wont hurt, ill be damned if im gonna smoke, i just need to control all the other feelings and fast xxx

  • Ive just taken half a tablet, ill go back to taking half a day again, i never want to smoke again but that doesnt stop the craves, i can handle the anger as long as i know it will go away, i cant be like this for the rest of my life :/ xxx

  • I know nothing about Champix Win, but I know all there is about fury! My user name's not an accident.

    IT WILL PASS! I promise it will, the day will come when you can't remember how many days or weeks you are, and the temper will become a memory....:)

  • Sorry you're having a lousy time Winbig!!

    One thing I've found good for the rage and stress is rhodiola liquid - someone else on here uses it and it helped her too :) You can literally feel the stress and anger fading :D

    Hoep you feel better tomorrow!!

  • Totally hear ya Win... 6 weeks is a wobbly time for a lot of people, the "novelty" factor has well and truly worn off and it's getting down to the nitty gritty, actually realising "sh1t I don't smoke!".... I can't offer advice on how to get through it, I'm yet to do it myself although my point when I get angry and crying is around 8 weeks, all I can say it will pass it has to because otherwise there wouldn't be so many people in the penthouse... I know it sucks, I really do feel for you, but you can do this, we all can, I really hope you start to feel better soon also, rescue remedy is good for calming you down when you feel irritable and anxious, take care xxx

  • Thanks all, had a good cry today and had a good long chat with my other hLf and feeling a bit brighter, he thinks with quitting smoking, dieting, being poorly and having a 2yr old by myself all week is just a bit too much, im hoping so too but i need to deal with it because i dont want to smoke again xxx thanks for all your kind words, its nice to know i. Not the only one dealing with the anger and upset, just want it gone, i thought life would be easier not smoking xxxx

  • It will be...but I think your OH is right. You're dealing with two difficult, life-changing events simultaneously, both of which demand a great deal of self-discipline & determination, in tandem with having been unwell and caring for a two year old. Not to mention managing the usual routine....It's hardly surprising that your emotions are all over the place at present and you're probably exhausted.

    If possible, I think you need to schedule in some 'me' time, even if it is just a few hours. Do something you really enjoy- ideally, something indulgent.

  • Thanks all xxxx so after another couple of days of tears i went to the doctors, i have very inflammed ears and throat, im on antibiotics and have to go for a blood test on thursday to rule out glandular fever. I have felt ill for 3wks now, so maybe, just maybe if i finally start feeling well i will also feel happier coz i am sick to death of feeling like this, i never knew i was such a bitch xxxxxx

    No wonder you've been feeling so awful. :(

    You've had far too much to cope with, and you have an infection. Once that is treated you'll feel stronger I'm sure.

    Take care of yourself. bb x :)

  • If you can't control your anger with your little girl and cats I think you should call a helpline
