Hi everyone I'm on day 16 on champix, I stopped on day 8, I've had no craving for a ciggy, although I find these tablets amazing, I would be lying if I said wish I didn't need them, they make me fuzzy headed, sleep deprived, the weird dreams have stopped but the restless sleep continues. So for anyone thinking of starting them it's not an easy ride but as we all know it's a necessary one, on a brighter note my breathing has improved already and some people has said my voice has changed, I can already run up stairs and not be out of breath, and yeah I'm probably gunna gain some weight but I'm proud to say I gained it through stopping smoking so good luck to us all... And let's all say we are all quitters ( the ciggies)

    Well done! Champix is a miracle drug. I had exactly the same side effects as well as nausea. I reduced my dose by half around week 3 or 4, and didnt look back. That was over 3 years ago, and its the best thing I ever did for my body. Freedom! Keep us posted and hope to see you on the forum giving advice to others soon. Huge congratulations to you! X
