So we’ve now reached day 8 in the kick the fags ( think smokes ya muppets) quest, I figured I might put down some findings along the way because ya never know, some poor bastard might read it and find something useful.
I’ll kick off with the CHAMPIX , if you read the pack or even worse, check them out on-line, they have the potential to do all sorts of harm, right up to including suicidal thoughts and very nasty dreams…..so we are told…..or not told! Rather than babble, heres what hit us or fk, whatever you want to call it!.
I crash about 10-11pm most nights now and are VERY FKN DOZEY, we sleep for a good 4-5 hours then its wakeup time every fkn hour.
Dry sore throat
Cough..well thats come on in the last two days or so..I’m thinking its a COLD..nothing to do with the CHAMPIX although they do mention it may generate a sore throat and perhaps a cough. BUT THIS FKR is a deep hacking cough…enough said.
Some minor chest type pains…. random really, but we been working in the garden, they most certainly have not made me aggressive. I have had to change the diet…to keep the internal system functioning…it had started to SLOW UP!..if you know what I mean.
Then we have the runny nose ( yes its a side effect, they list it). THATS DRIVING ME FUCKING NUTS!
Not sure how we will go over the coming week, the dosage from day one to three is .5mg, then on day 4 it goes to 1mg ( 2 x.5mg tabs).
Now its day 8…….D-DAY, we stay on two tablets and they increase in dosage to 1mg per tablet…should be interesting.
From day one, the effect of the tablets was noticable, we dropped from a packet a day down to 1 packet lasting just on three days, which really did surprise me. These things block the PLEASURE..bit of smoking and after a while..its almost un fun. The key..well thats been finding OTHER THINGS TO DO, I would not reccomend doing this when you are on holidays..you simply have too much free time. Better to be at work I suspect, but we shall keep at it.
Diets changed, proper nbreakfast, we snack a fair bit during the day now, but mostly thats to crush the habbit of HAVING A SMOKE. Celery, carrot fingers raw, chewies, COFFEE has dropped right off, Drinking more fruit juice and water, drinking less coke, eating sultanas and peanuts and dips and snacking and chips and FK KNOWS WHAT ELSE.
Climbed about 1.5 kgs, but I tink thats stabilised…I’ll check the weight later this morning. So today is it, its the last day by the PLAN, tomorrow we go smoke free completely, we had 5 gaspers yesterday, the plan is to have about three today….oh..btw, I’ve stayed away from the grog as well, both because ya want a fkn smoke and more so because of the CHAMPIX. I had a heavy beer at day two….NOT GOOD!
Do not drink and use this stuff and then drive etc..bad bad bad.
OH…and GAS..WIND or any associated description you can think of…BAD and i mean BAD, just odourless thank god!
