By Julia CGave up 2 days ago. Friday night was day 7 of my Champix and Saturday was going to be day 8 so I used up all my remaining cigarettes and went to bed in a ciggie free house.
Saturday was rough. Every time I walked by the back door I wanted to step out and light up (I've always smoked outside for about the last 9 years). I think if I'd had any I would have lit up. I refused to leave the house.
Several times I felt desperate for a smoke. I ended up hitting the sweets, biscuits, nuts, and almonds pretty hard.
I also spent a few hours napping during the day.
Sunday was a little better still wanted a smoke but I felt that as long as I avoided any place I could buy smokes I could make it. I was still getting the cravings a little.
I had to go other to my mother's as, after I decided my quit date, after I started taking Champix, my brother in the UK decided to make a flying visit. I needed to set up a room for him to stay in.
Weirdly enough my mother decided to tackle me about a disagreement between my sister & I ... circa 1972. I was too stressed to be nice so I wasn't impressed.
Didn't sleep too well. Went to bed early & woke up a little before 2 AM. Couldn't settle & didn't get back to sleep until after 3AM Monday 8th.
