About myself

Hi guys. My name is Neli. I'm from Port Elizabeth in South Africa.I've been smoking for about 17yrs about 10 a day. I have decided to stop putting this poison into my body. I've got two beautiful kids whom i wouldnt like them to grow up with a smoker in the house. hubby does not smoke. i'm on day 8 on champix. the side effects not too bad. but the smoking is getting a bit less. will see how it goes.

    I too am on Champix (day 14 of no smoking, day 22 of Champix).

    Well done on your decision to quit - I won't lie, it is certainly the hardest, but definitely the BEST decision of my life!

    I did suffer some side effects (I think from Champix - nausea, a bit of anxiety etc.) but I am glad to say that these have eased off for me - stick with it, I promose it does get better.

    What is your quit day?

    This is a very supportive site and I am sure you will receive many more welcome messages and messages of support - there are always plenty of fellow quitters on here to give you continued guidance, information and encouragement.

    I look forward to following your journey and being a successful fellow non-smoker.

    Keep strong!
