    Good luck with giving up, it isn't easy but if you are ready to try again you should succeed.
    Take it a day at a time and learn from your previous attempt, you did well and it is understandable that you went back to smoking. Life throws lots of obsticles in our way but I'm glad you are trying again, never give up giving up and you will get there!

    I gave up smoking 3 years ago with Champix, however it really really had a bad effect on me even after I had stop taking it. I sank into an awful cycle of depression and mood swings (I understand stopping smoking also brings this on but it carried on for 18 months). I am not saying do not take it, I am just saying be careful....I take St Johns Wort and that seemed to help. Good luck x

    Sorry to hear that, if you have never smoked you will never understand how hard it is to quit and I found my NHS advisor was and had always been a non smoker.

    Howevr Fiona, you are doing really well...you should be very proud of yourself xx

    my OH used them, only got the first one or two courses, as he was running out he took less than the recommended dose gradually but managed to quit, really proud of him! I think the drugs gave that extra boost in the early days of quitting.
