    Well done Ian - I am sure you will be fine - I finished my course 21/2 weeks ago and go some very odd side affects coming off of them albeit I only had one a day after week 4 till the end of the course.  The neurotransmitters in the brain keep working for a while and wean off and it is down to your own self control.  I just never want a cigarette again and cannot believe I smoked 20 plus for 37 years and I no longer smoke nor have the desire for one ever -  Keep trucking and stay positive smile

    To be absolutely honest Ian - I am absolutely elated and could jump for joy.

    It has changed my life, infact I can hardly remember being a smoker, so the Champix did it's job and brain washed me!!  Stay strong and feel the freedom - So chuffed for you too smile
