Day 21 of quitting smoking update.

After 10 days and doing really well - smoking down to just the odd few per day (from around 30 a day) - had an extreme allergic reaction to the patches. The skin where all the 10 patches had been became inflamed and itchy, and the new patch felt like acid on my skin. Visited doctor who took me off the patches immediately and gave me Champix as alternative.

Days 11 - 19 gradually increased dosage of Champix but smoked "normally" :(
Day 20 (yesterday) - stopped smoking totally again - now 24 hours without a cig.

No side effects from Champix so far.
On Saturday we asked the Portuguese police if they had any objection to us coming back to the UK. We had assured them that we will continue to cooperate fully with the investigation and of course will return as requested and for our own emotional reasons.

Good Morning DCB. :D
Funny you should mention the patches...Both me and the partner felt the itchy sensation when first adhesed...It probably last 10 mins max...No other side-effects were reported only vivid dreams...Glad you were given an alternative. What is Champix?

In exactly 24 hours i'll be entering the clinic...A completely new dawn in my life will begin. One hopes...Committment, determination, and positive mindset I hope to succeed... :)

and thats my update but i must say tomorrows another day the determination is still there but im sad for my kitty as shes only one years old and not street wise well she wasnt and my other kitty is pining for her too as is my son... so now its all in the lap of the gods im afraid but i will never give up giving up..

i will keep you informed..how are you doing anyway Smurf please let me know all my love Adonia xxx :D
ps i will look into the other posters treatment and see if it will be ok for me too :mrgreen:

edit: i was just reading over the posts and came to my post from last night the ive quit one and felt guilty and stubbed out my fag and now im sucking a fox,s glasier mint and i have a bag full... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: just going to read up on the posters new treatment champix then we all can become champions.. :wink:

Sorry to hear about your kitty :( ...Any sign of her yet?

I've almost done a full day, cold turkey too!!!! ...and am just too far out in the sticks to think about getting cigs at this hour of the night so I can safely say I'll see it throught to the morning.

When are you giving up next then?

Good luck to you all,I gave up first week in Jan,had a bad cold,wheezy at night,one night woke fighting to breathe,that was it,decided to stop smoking,havn`t had one since.




Adonia,Hope you`ve found your kitty,it`s horrid when they go missing,I spent nights shaking the box of biscuit treats when Billie was missing,he came back after 3 nights,dirty and hungry,good luck.x~~fishie

Sorry,just willpower,I felt so ill at the time that I just told myself I would`nt smoke again.The last time I gave up,using willpower,it lasted 2 years.Inbetween smoked for 10 months.Hoping it goes well for all of you.

Don`t give up on Kitty,have you asked about sheds,garages ect?probably yes,worth a try though.xxx~~fishie
