4 weeks off very lethargic

Hi, everyone iv read your posts and found them so helpful I just had to say thanks never posted anything before so hear goes. I quit 4 weeks ago using champix but now I feel Very lethargic  and don't quite feel myself anymore . (I don't blame the champix  ) I think it's the demon tobacco trying to push me back to smoking , I'm not going to give in ,I know it's a tricks ? iv stopped too many times but this is a new one on me just want to stay in bed and a bit reclusive " crazy stuff "ok so I obviously don't know what this drug is capable Of "hate it " but love it too smoked over thirty years and i really don't understand what nicotine is capable off . one thing I have learned is if I take just one puff I'm back  smoking again I really can say I totally understand that after all this time (numerous attempts to stop ) like  other habits and addictions it's a case of changing your life forever and for the better that can't be bad I'm ranting and it's made me feel a little bit energetic so I'm going to get up and do something constructive feel like a nutter today 😂 love this app it's really helping me kick this habit  Thanks for reading

  • Good morning Nelly from 🇨🇦☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️

    Awesome post!!  Yes, addiction is cunning and baffling.   I was lethargic and depressed for a few months.. I couldn't believe I was so addicted to cigarettes ... I can't believe the government allows the tobacco industry to put all those chemicals (4000+) into the tobacco and sell them to us to kill us.. Somethings very wrong ..

    Glad you posted your feelings and thoughts👍🏻

    Best wishes xxxx

  • Hi Nellyquit and a big warm welcome to our quit support community :) and look at you, 4 weeks quit already, am soooo proud of you Nelly :) :) 

    Champix is an excellent form of NRT and will be working as I speak on your nicotine receptors in your brain and things will start to get easier and easier for you as you go along your quit journey :) As for you feeling a bit crazy, thats just the norm of quitting smoking gal but it will pass, ermm, hopefully, cos some of our longer term members on here are still a bit ermmm, lets just say NUTTY eh Ha ha ha.
