Champix Dreams: Second week, Day 14

Champix Dreams!
Day 14:  4/9
Smoked 0 cigarettes.  Weight 65k. O.o Losing weight?

The seventh day of no smoking!  Celebration! To mark this happy day, I drank two shots of tequila!  One for each week of using Champix.  I love tequila and I love not craving a cigarette after drinking! Sure there are some side-effects of Champix, the queasiness, the fatigue, the mood swings and the crazy dreams, but not much worse than quitting smoking without any assistance. I have been busy lately, and I think keeping myself occupied is the best accompanying medicine.


Feeling pretty good.  I have also noticed that past regrets or embarrassing events I remember, and there are many, don't bother me as much as they used to.  I used to have a memory a day so embarrassing that I would shout some colorful expletive like some Turrets Syndrome sufferer. I've a friend that suffers from Turrets Syndrome, she's an amazing person. You're awesome A-chan! 

I had this fantastic dream today, it was sadly interrupted by my alarm.

Beep Beep Beep!

I told myself to remember, remember, remember... then fell back to sleep for a snooze.  Shat... I forgot the dreams.  Sorry.

What the f.., ok! That was weird.

Before taking Champix, I can't remember when I dreamed last.  It must have been about a year. What is the longest time you have gone without a dream you could remember?

  1. how's it going now? Still quit?
    I'm just past week 2, but I can't seem to say no to smokes if I've been drinking. Just wondering if it worked for you in the end, and if not, why not?

  2. Hiya Paul. I still quit. I couldn't handle the full dose of Champix. I had to quit the champix and muscle out the days of non-smoking from there on. It was tough, but I am still smoke free! I have gained a bit of weight and a belly but otherwise I am healthy.

    Anything is worth a try to quit smoking... rat poison is probably more healthy for you than cigarettes.

    In the end, I was able to quit because I want to be a non-smoker more than I want to smoke. I want to lower my chances of a smoker's death to as little as possible.

    Good luck in your treatment. I hope you can quit like I did.
