I've let my workmates know that I'm on my 24th day of giving up. I explained that I said nothing earlier because I was trying to minimise stress. I also used it as a chance to explain about the possible side effects of Champix.

They took it well, but ironically in the late morning I got the strongest cravings I've had a work since week 1. Successfully resisted, of course.

In retrospect doing this today when I'm going out for drinks tonight for the first time since July probably wasn't the greatest tactical move but it's nothing I can't overcome.

    Good luck for tonight Bruce. Just a tip. Alcohol is a major trigger. But, I suppose you already know that. I can now drink and remain smokefree. But the cravings are more intense. Get through tonight and you'll get through anything☺

    Thanks everyone. I've posted an update, but to briefly some up: I had fun, and alcohol & did not have nicotine.
