Hi folks, hope Iโ€™m in the right place.

So a brief introduction as to why Iโ€™m here, the message told me to! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

So several years ago I quit using Champix and it was easy and great no problems, got off the smokes for 2 years maybe and sadly fell off the wagon- was so disappointed in myself...

tried again with Champix a couple of years ago and it just didnโ€™t seem to work at all, was like taking smarties, unlike the first go where I got nausea, funky dreams (to be fair I got a few of those the second time but that was the only side effect) cigs tasted amazingly disgusting and made me feel physically ill.

Now onto Take 3 just started day 9 I have noticed things taste weird, including cigs, have the vivid dreams and a little nausea but nothing major. Did have a bad night last night but not sure if that was me or the tablets.

I have definitely cut down on how many Iโ€™m smoking and I feel now itโ€™s more the habit than the addiction. Hoping to quit totally in the third week.

Was wondering if I should get to day 15/16 and switch totally to a nicotine free ecig as I know I get bored charging those so will end up not bothering or whether thatโ€™s just going to drag things out (pardon the pun) ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Many thanks in advance x

As long as you use nic free and only when bad craving is there I would do it. Anything to get off the cigarettes. Just have a plan to give that up also

Thanks Vicky68 I tend to get bored with charging the ecigs so I donโ€™t think giving those up would be a problem. Thank you

Welcome Sollana - like Vicky suggested I would definitely get 0% nicotine ecig just to have as an emergency but try your very best not to use it as it will be another hand to mouth habit to tackle along with the mental withdrawals when you put out that last cigarette. Also, it is recommended to complete the full 12 week course of the champix.

Have a read through the pinned posts as some helpful tips and advice there. We look forward to seeing your Day 1 post very soon :)
