Thank you for joining and with the use of Champix you should be able to stop by day 12 or 14... I came down from 60 to 0 in 12 days for the same tasted like crap..... but the habit was still there..!!

Hello and welcome.

I have to say, that for me, the fear of not smoking was almost worse than not smoking itself. The 'I am not going to be able to smoke' train of thought really was the hardest part. It was almost like a fear of not being able to do things that I did when I smoked. Worry not. Such feelings pass. It's a learning curve. Try not to worry about it and just take each day or hour as it comes. It can be done.

Support is vital especially in the early days, so post as often as you need to. We are all here, all at different stages and have all used different methods. There is always somebody around to offer advice if you need it.

Good luck. You've got this. 😎
