Looking good!! At the moment I am doing it pretty easy. Almost like I DON'T smoke. Weird really.

Going pretty well. No dramas, no side effects AND...... NO CIGGIES for 9 days!!!. This is my 10th day. Really is quite miracle stuff. I'm super impressed with Champix.

That's fantastic news, Silver .

Just remember, you can never have another one ... If you do, you will find that you are instantly back to the point where you had never given up at all. The neural receptors that cause us to be addicted to thousands of chemicals in cigarette smoke stay in the synapses in our brains until the day we die ... .

After 32 years, I still consider myself a non-smoking cigarette addict ... .

As RB said, even in 1yr or 10yrs time, dont let temptation beat you for "just one", the receptors are there forever.

That's what happened about 10 years ago. On the turps.....I'm cool...one ciggie won't hurt......I can handle it.......next day I was smoking again.
As time goes on I should get stronger. I don't want to ever smoke again!!!

A good mate of mine once said: No thanks, I'm giving up.
But what really stuck in my mind was his next few words, which are so very true.
"I can't mate, cause I'm just one puff away from a pack a day"

In a couple of days I reach 2 months with no smokes. Bit of a dream really. It has been so easy I just can't believe it.
Occasionally, maybe every 2 or 3 days, I get a sudden feeling I would like a smoke but it soon passes.
I am still having a lot of trouble getting a good nights sleep but that's OK. I've cut the night dose to 1/2 a tablet and try to take it earlier and it helps a bit. I have one months supply left by the prescription dose but it will last longer than that. In about 2 weeks I will cut the daytime dose by half and see how I go. I intend to ween myself off them over about 4 weeks. That would be 4 months of medication and then on my own!!
I'm back doing some running/jogging on the bush trails in Bournda National Park...lots of steps and up and down stuff and really enjoying it. I'm up to 10klms with an aim of 20klms in about 6 months. It takes a lot longer to work up the stamina when the years advance!

Well done, mate .

The danger period is at the 6-12 month time IME.

Great that you are getting fit too. I have lost over 6 Kgs in the last 6 months, which is all to the good. I need to get fitter, but cannot run ...

As for the sleeping tablets, I agree about weaning yourself off them very gradually. I take a medication to help me to sleep (Clonazepam), and I can't even reduce the dose (minute amount anyway, it's an anti-epileptic drug usually). I am dependent on it to sleep. Many years ago now, I had to increase the dose to counteract the effects of another drug I had to take (on medical advice, of course). I no longer take the second drug. I tried for about 3-4 months to cut back the small dose I take, and all it did was leave me seriously sleep deprived! Oh well, an adult epileptic takes about 16x the dose I take, but I am very wary of this drug!!

If I have trouble sleeping (which I perennially do - have had for 50+ years), I take other drugs to address the specific issue that is causing me not to sleep worth a damn. Increasing the dose of Clonazepam will put me out like a light, but the danger of becoming dependent on the higher dose makes me extremely wary about doing this.
