Newbie non-smoker!

cherylpere1 Year Smoke Free

Hi Everyone! My name is Cheryl, I came across this forum today as I stopped smoking 5 days ago, and was wondering how many people there are out there going through the same thing! I'm mentally feeling great for what I've accomplished, but physically the cravings are INSANE! There are so many times that I have had to convince myself to not go buy a box and smoke! I used Champix and it has helped quite a lot! I look forward to sharing this journey with you all!!

Hi Cheryl

I'm on champix too I'm on my day4 when I get the urge to smoke I keep saying to myself it's the mental habit I'm going through not the physical I know everyone will have their own way of getting passed the urge but it's working for me good luck and keep nicotine free


Huge welcome Cheryl and well done on 5 days, that is great! It takes 3 days for the nicotine to leave your system and you have got over that and are now on the mental battle which will be tough for a while, but GOOD NEWS, as each day passes by it gets easier, keep going and as busy as possible, it will be worth it. Post as often as you need to, strongs xx

Hello everyone, wow I don't know how I missed these messages from 2 years ago! I unfortunately failed at my first attempt of quitting, but am now on day 4 of champix again, really not looking forward to the nausea, but just telling myself that it's better than smoking! I can already feel the affect of the champix, I'm still smoking as my quit day is day 14, but the cigarettes are horrible and I'm battling to get through 1, which is great! It'll made day 14 a lot easier! Thank you again for your support! Its much appreciated!!
