I have tried numerous times to stop smoking - had the addiction for 43 years!! I 'cheated' the pharmacy into giving me champix by blowing zero on the meter they use. I did this by using an e-cig and NRT for 72 hours prior to my consultation. I wanted to have the tablets in so I could quit in my own time without having to keep going to the pharmacy. Long story made shorter - I decided that if I could do it for 72 hrs - keep going just one day at a time. I am now 32 days free of ciggies. I don't want to keep on the NRT and e-cig indefinitely. Could anyone out there tell me when the best time to start taking the tablets would be - based on their experiences of psychological craving. I am enjoying the e-cig - but want to stop using it eventually. Some people tell me that 2 months and 3 months post smoking can be particularly stressful?
This is my first time on this site - joined it today - so hope I haven't 'waffled' too much!!
