Brand new to the site,, joined about 4 minutes ago after reading a few posts discussing that wonder-drug, Champix! This is my third time with Champix; the first time i gave up smoking for 8 months, the second time i gave up Champix after 8 days as it was doing nothing, not even any side effects(!) but this time I'm exactly 14 days in and boy oh boy is it working!!
Still have quiet urges every now and again but they're not crippling me. Yep, still have the morning nausea for about an hour, yep still have bizarre dreams at night. This time however, for the first time, when i get out of bed in the morning i feel as though I've not actually been to sleep, but I'm pretty certain that i have. Anybody else have this feeling?
I've read a few posts about people reducing their daily intake, particularly at night, and I'm seriously considering this in an attempt to have a good sleep. Has anybody else tried it? I just want to wake up in the morning without the baggy eyes. I can't concentrate at work, find myself very easily distracted and I've got two and a half months to go!
Ciggie-free for 12 days so i know it's working and i have no desire to return to smoking - the smells from my co-workers after their fag-break actually brings back the nausea!
My main reason for stopping is my health. I've got bronchitis which sucks, and although that hasn't really cleared up since stopping I'm very confident that it will.
Best wishes to all taking Champix. I know it's a long and windy road but think of the long-term benefits (just as i am trying to do!)
