I smoke, have done for 20 odd years. I smoke roughly 30 fags a day. I have attempted to give them up and have failed each time.
Non smokers think smokers are weak, "sure just stop" is one that has been said to me numerous times, well comments like that are absolute crap as any smoker will tell you.
I want to stop seriously I do, I have tried patches, inhalers, gum, microtabs, Allen Carr and hypnosis but I am still smoking.
So early December I went to the doctors to get my little ones last jab before school, and decided to ask about those prescribed drugs to help give up. The doctor told me about this new drug out called Champix. Its a 12 week programme and I am now on day 10 of it. You are allowed smoke for the first week and sometime within the 2nd week you are to give up.
Well so far today at 11 o clock I have had 1 cigarette, compared to the 6 or 7 I would have had by now, my quit day is coming up soon and I feel I will succeed at last.
On another note my mood has not altered at all compared to all previous attempts.
So to any smokers out there, and I know we are few, and the 7.45 price tag is getting you down visit the doctor and give this stuff a go.
