I thought I would do a small update as to how I'm getting on with the Champix and quitting smoking.
The good news is - I've quit!
The bad news is I'm as sick as a dog. Honestly, sometimes I feel like I should be put down. The nausea I'm experiencing at the moment due to the tablets it's ridiculous. I'm so close to just stopping taking them altogether but I don't want to end up smoking again.
I would hope that I would have enough will power not to slip back into my old habits, but I'm not willing to risk it. I'd feel like such a failure if I started smoking again and I really don't want to. I guess I'm just going to have to suck it up and deal with the sickness.
As of today, I have been quit for 12 days! Very nearly 2 weeks. I really am proud of myself, it's not something I ever thought I would achieve. I've always told myself I would quit when I was ready, whether it be now or in the future, but I never really believed it. I honestly thought I'd be smoking forever.
In all fairness if I had a little bit more confidence in myself then I'd have probably quit years ago. I'm only 22 and have smoked for 8 years, it's awful. My main reason for quitting is because I don't want Princess to start. Realistically I know that if she's going to smoke, then she's going to smoke, but at least this way I know that I won't have influenced her into that decision. If anything my experience of it will hopefully put her off.
