Hi Hev548

You can but check in with your doctor first. Just in case there are underlying conditions that might affect the time in between taking. Im on my third time taking. Keep quitting till it sticks!

I only took 1course which worked for me. So unfortunately cannot advise you on this. Good luck in giving up

Hi Ann, how are things with you? Haven't seen you on here in a while. I was wondering how you were doing with all this craziness going on in the world.

Talk to your doctor. I took it twice. But a ten year gap between both. The first time around I kept throwing up when I got to the full prescription. So I packed it in. This time I only took half of the prescription and it worked for me. Nine more days will mark one year for me. However the champix won't make you quit. It will help with the cravings. You have to want to quit. Good luck

Lovely to hear from you & hope you and family are ok during these very odd times.

I miss my grandchildren (7,5,&1) but have seen them Distanced.

Have done plenty of walking & fortunately live on the coast so am not restricted like some folks in cities. I was put under Full lockdown by mistake a few weeks ago but got it resolved in a few days!

Miss my 5 days swimming & Gym but better to be safe. Am now almost 11 months smoke free & if COVID 19 hasn’t made me smoke hopefully nothing will 😂👏

Wish you all the very best for the future, as uncertain as it seems to be at the moment.And congrats on nearly a year for you 🥳👍

Happy to hear that all is well with you. I also think that if we made it through this stressful time and didn't go back to smoking then we are good. At the beginning I was a little worried about being confined to home. As early in my quit I would walk every morning. Then in the afternoon I would go shopping or thrift shops or markets. This was to keep busy and also places you couldn't smoke. But I was far enough along in my quit to be okay. I can't say I didn't think of it a time or two. Stay safe and well and hopefully life will get back to normal in the near future.
