I'm not posting or commenting as much as usual as I'm out of the country for a while and it's difficult (expensive!) to get internet access. Friday the 17th, 6:00pm is my reaching 6 weeks point. I'm in the U.S and there really are not many people smoking, so that's a help. I've reduced the champix by half so I can stretch out taking it for longer. I am so concerned that I will relapse when I stop the champix completely, as happened the last two times. I suppose I'm thinking that I'm now going to go through those psychological withdrawals more intensely and that I won't deal with them. Although, this is not the reality. At this time I'm not smoking, I don't really want to smoke and it would be self sabotage if I did smoke.
I'm just entering week 3 of the 5k Runner, and I have to say that for now, I'm doing well and want to keep that up. I think that doing this is the motivation to keep me smoke free at this time. I know if I smoked again that would be the end of the running. It's hard enough when not smoking!
