A Champix update

Yep, I'm still on the Champix and nope, I haven't had a single smoke since I started taking them.

In fact, I was doing so well and I was so pleased with my progress, I'd decided it was time to start cutting down on the Champix.

I decided to halve the dose in the morning and the evening. Big mistake. I was okay for the first 4 days or so, but on the 5th (which nicely coincided with my birthday), I was getting very jittery and uncomfortable. In fact, it felt almost the same as it did the very first day I stopped smoking. Not good.

So, for now, I'm back up to full strength. I didn't crack, and I didn't have a smoke, but it wasn't a pleasant experience.

I guess my body/brain just isn't quite ready yet.
