Champix (varenicline) for Smoking Cessation "I started champix 15 days ago, 25 years of smoking. After watching my father die of lung cancer at the age of 62 , caused by him smoking . I cannot let my children see me die the way my father did . My father died in June so still pretty raw . 4 days in of taking champix I had side effects, headache, sickly ect . I felt like nothing was happening, and I was convinced it would not work for me. I was still smoking, still wanting and needing to smoke. Then day 14 came and something just clicked, I no longer wanted a cig, didn't crave it, For the first time in 25 years I have done a whole day without a cigarette . Feels weird, feels like I'm sort of grieving for it because I no longer need it . I could never even imagine my life without smoking, I couldn't ever imagine driving to work and not smoking 2 cigs on the way , or waking each morning and having a coffee and cig. My advice to anyone who's thinking " it's not working " give it a chance it's totally worth it . :-) ."
Champix (varenicline) for Smoking Cessation "After 40 years of being a smoker I decided I wanted to quit using champix. I had tried NRT a couple of times but always went back to smoking . This time I decided I wanted to try something and not be addicted to nicotine either after quitting. Champix worked for me, I'm pleased to say I have been a non smoker for 16 months. Yes, I had some of the symptoms mentioned but you have to persevere & not give in, if you really want to quit! A few horrible side affects for a couple of months is worth it in the long run!! I also found that a vape (0% nicotine) helped for those times that the habit kicks in. I rarely think of smoking now and are so happy not to addicted to this drug anymore. Do it what have you got to lose?!" 041b061a72
