I only joined yesterday to prepare for my quit on the 1st August and had an appointment today at work to see the nurse who has just started doing stop smoking clinics. I have been hanging on for months for them to start and eventually she said she was all ready to start them up. So I had started taking some champix left over from a previous quit attempt and set my date for 1st Aug, got a phone call from the nurse 3hrs before my appointment to say she was going on holiday for 2 weeks and did I want to go with quit 51 instead of her as she wouldn't be here to give me the support I needed. I said no I want to see you, so I kept the appointment and done the co2 test and gave all my details and she said she would sort out my prescription and it would be sent to my doctors. Then this afternoon she rings me again and says she hasn't signed her contract and can't do the prescription!! So I said ok, I will go to my Drs and see the nurse there, I ring the Drs and am told the funding has been withdrawn and they don't do smoking cessation clinics anymore, they give me the phone number for quit 51, I ring them 3 times and left a message for them to get back to me today and guess what! Nothing!! Got enough champix to last me a week and working 6am to 6pm Thursday and Friday and 12hr shift Monday and Tuesday night. Good job I am determined to quit! It's just made me feel really annoyed and unsettled now!
Sorry just needed to have a rant!!
