Default Finally quitting smoking.

I have tried giving up before but this time I am trying something different, I started taking Champix 2 weeks ago and today is the day that I give up.

Past few days I have hardly smoked (about 4 a day) I was smoking 20 a day. the tablets that I am on really takes away the craving. I am really hoping this works for me.

Glad something is working for you! It's a difficult addiction to give up but it is possible.

Good luck. My doctor told me I could not take Chantrix.

I have been vaping, too. The vape juice tastes better than the cigars I was smoking.

Awesome. I'm trying to stick to vaping too while tapering off...It's going to take willpower to completely stop, that's for sure.

Yes Champix can cause mood instability and may interact with some medications. It works for a few people though, for sure.
