Shea just remember that the mood swings will go away, I quit with champix in 3 weeks thats from 2 packs aday my wife also quit at the same time there were a few mood swings but we got through it.
Good luck


Thanks Nubs,
I will let you know how it goes when I start. I pick up my meds today, so I will start taking them tomorrow morning. I may have lots of questions for you in the coming weeks. Thanks for your support!



Also, make sure you eat a good meal in the morning, just from experience! If you skip breakfast; the way I felt, you feel like hurling! And the dreams!!!!!!! I want to take it again simply for the dreams I had. :drinking:

Well two complete weeks of not smoking. I have to say that it is not the easiest thing that I have ever done. Some days are great, others not so great! Thank god for the champix though, it really helps, except for the upset stomach. That I could do without. Stay strong and think positive.

Well, I am past the 1 month mark and I feel great. I am finally getting use to it and I love my new routine. I should have done this years ago.

Great job everyone! :thumbsup: Keep up the good work on quitting smoking! I smoked for a year and half and felt like crap. I quit cold turkey in 2006 and haven't looked back.

So I'm thinking of taking up smoking, or at least having a pack handy to light up and return fire. :twisted:
What is wrong with people ? :cuss: I had to dodge two lit butts tossed out the window today one on the bike and one being a really close call tonight in the 69 SS. Just where do they think the cigarette butt is going to go when you toss it out the window at 80 K with vehicles travelling behind & beside you ?

Thats neat, because the night before I quit I had a dream that a person showed up at my door. We got into an argument and he turned into a giant cigarette. I said "I am all done with this!" and shoved him out the door with my foot. The next day I threw my cigarettes out and never looked back. I won't say I did not have cravings, but I threw a few hot tamales in my mouth whenever one surfaced and that killed the feeling pretty quick.
IMO the mind has a lot to do with quitting. I had tried repeatedly to quit before the dream. I guess I needed to get my subconsious on board :wave:
