I am now entering week 8 on champix and 3 weeks nicotine free. My experience of champix is that it is a 'cruel'(but fab) drug.... I went cold turkey and had no choice - when I increased the dosage, a day or so later I slept for most of 3 days after that... then in a trance for a day or so after that.... etc... BUT towards the end of the 3 weeks nicotine free I have started to feel ok!
This afternoon I was using ebay - laptop soooooo slow - took me hours and I was so frustrated I was hot and sweaty.
OK, I guess you know what I was feeling, STRESS = CIGGIE.
WRONG Celestine, STOP and THINK - right, because I am aware that after 3 weeks I am no longer addicted to nicotine, it must be a psychological feeling. Therefore, perhaps it's more likely to be - STRESS = HUNGER. I had a banana and sat quietly, deep breathing for a few minutes and calmed down.
Do you know, it WORKED!!!!!!!
