Hi this forum looks very good. I have quit smoking and I am now on day 8. I changed my environment for the first 7 days but am now back to normal life. The first few days were hard but today has been harder than last few. I am not getting major cravings but I have been taking Champix for 15 days now. I started smoking when I was very young (pre teens). It feels like something is missing or its not me. Although I am not craving a fag I feel like I should smoke anyway because I have lost a part of me. I have never tried to quit before and have been smoking for 15 years. It seems to be worst at times I would normally smoke. Until last year I never wanted to quit and I loved smoking, it was only about 10 months ago this changed.
I feel like maybe i could be OK if i did something else other than smoking at these times not sure what it could be?
I dont want to move to e-cigs or some other replacement product. This feels like cheating.
Anybody have any similar experiences? I try to think back to what life was like before I smoked, I either cant remember or it seems unreal because I was so young.
