So I’ve woken up on day two of not smoking throughout the night I woke up to a cold sweat and shivering which must be signs of my body screaming for nicotine! I thought in previous times quitting it was a side effect to the champix but obviously not! Today is feeling hard already

Day 1

avatar-icon

So I am on day 1 of attempt 4 of giving up smoking. The last 3 times I’ve been on champix and all 3 times have have strange, different side effects each time.
This time I am trying patches and lozenges but am yet to receive my prescription. 🤞🏻 I can do it this time!! I know it’s going to be harder but I feel it is time
