Hello everyone, I'm new here.
I'm 46 year old female, and I've been smoking since I was 16. I've stopped a few times, when I was pregnant and I lost a 4 year quit 3 years ago, which I quit cold turkey. Ever since I've been trying to quit. This time around, I needed the extra help, so I've opted for Champix. It hasn't been easy, the side effects are not fun, but I'm pushing on... I started it Nov 1st, and today was suppose to be my quit day. The craving are gone, and Champix has removed the desire to smoke, so now I just need to let go. It's the mental aspect that I'm struggling with. So today is day 12, and was suppose to be my quit date but I smoked this morning. It was nasty lol It was just part of my habit of driving etc. I'm here because I really I want to hear from others that have used Champix successfully.
Here are my fears: getting depressed. The side effects have been I'm VERY TIRED and unmotivated, and some gastoro issues, but I know this is temporary.
I just want to know that these feeling will go away after this course of Champix?
Those of you that have had success quitting this way, I really need to hear from you.
Thank you so much.
