I have just heard back from the support nurse and she has confirmed that my doctor has approved my prescription for Champix which I can pick up from the surgery this Friday. She also said not to rush into the start date, take my time and most definitely set it after my holiday. So another major step forward for me and I'm really feeling quite excited and positive about this. I know it's very early days for me still but at least I'm on the right path and have made positives steps to finally stop smoking. I have another appointment with her on the 9th just to see how things are.
