Actually no, that is not at all true.

People are wired differently and some are more susceptible top addiiction.

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance and the majority of smokers have great difficulty quitting.

Will power is of course important but the fact that you found it easy to quit does not mean it will be the same for others. On the contrary, you are most unusual.

Several irate/flaming replies to the above post have been deleted.

I heard or read somewhere long time ago that some smokers are not that addicted in the end. They just think they are. Any truth in this or more information to be found in the net ?

Reason why i'm interested is that i had an operation and was hospitalized in heavy pain medication for three days and not smoking. Once released i decided to give it a go after 25 years. Prepared myself with packets of gum etc and was surprised to find out that it was actually much easier than i expected. It's been two months now and sometimes get the urge but it soon passes and i can control it even when drinking.

I do consider myself extremely lucky and by no means to put down anyone who's using other methods. Whatever works for you go for it. I feel so much better and i know it's just getting better by day when all the crap comes slowly out from my lungs.

Just curious on how it differs so much between individuals.

Saw this post while browsing through google about anything related to champix.

Don't get me wrong Champix is a fantastic drug how ever..

- Do not take if you have past depression or mental health issues

- Do not take along side any serious illness.

The reason I'm stating above the 2 following reasons, Champix can easily cause depression issues for sure. Read the reviews on google about it.

I'm only saying this myself as I've seen mood swings in my normal behaviour pattern that is not normal.

Champix has helped me stop for 30 days now and It's going great apart from the odd headace and eating a little more then normal. Including sleeping a little bit more.

But would you not suffer them side effects to quit?

This drug requires prescription and side effects are not fully known yet as most drugs take 4-6 years to regulate where this took half the normal time, 6 Months I think.

I was under the impression that a full course of Champix was 90 days?

Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong, or maybe it takes longer for some people than others.

I tried Champix before but gave up owing to awful nightmares /sweats, but I am gonna try again, I just can't do the willpower thing, in recent times the longest I can manage is about 8 hours, then I am climbing the walls, however I am a 2 pack a day guy and have been that way for 40 years give or take.

I had stopped drinking years before so that wasn't a part of the problem. About 6 months ago I had a cardiac event and was in ICU for 5 days and the hospital for about 2 weeks. It cost 200,000 baht. Doctor said not to smoke or I would be back again for another 200,000 baht. It worked for me. I call it my 200,000 baht smoking cure. In comparison to the things they did to me in the ICU it was easy to be on the outside not smoking.

Hmm, if I ha not read what I posted when I last tried to give up using Champix I would be discouraged.

I'm now on day 8 and I am NOT feeling physically sick when I smoke, I had got to that stage by day 9 last time ,

I am still smoking as much as usual , nothing has changed..except I could relay the events that took place in my dreams for the last 3 nights in a row.....it makes me a bit scared to go to bed as I have no idea where I will be going tonightermm.gif ??

I really do hope the cravings start to diminish soon as these dreams are really doing my head in. I need to feel the dreams are worth it, mind you in the first one I was trying to explain to my old Mum that the girl on the TV, Kylie Minougue was my new wifecheesy.gif Trouble is none have been so light hearted since, they involve a lot of dead peoplesad.png

If any of you have champix available and wanna sell it on (providing they haven't expired yet) let me know, i would be interested to give it a go... i did try 4-5 years ago but had the weird dreams/sleep patterns problem, hence i dont wanna go down to the docs and lay down 5k for a 3-4 week supply - they didn't work for me last time (i still smoke today) - but i'm willing to give it one more go before looking into alternative methods.

Quit this morning,

feel confident. The dreams/nightmares still persist, but in 10 weeks time I won't need them anymore and I will be a non-smoker for good.

Time will tell
