It will keep getting better over time. It won't be easy to let the habit go, but it is soooo worth it! My breathing is much better since I quit.

Thanks, TWEETYKC00. :)

Actually, I changed my mind. Today is my quit day.

I'm still taking the Champix, though I will not increase my dosage past .5mg once per day. I may not take it past this weekend. I started reading "Allen Carr's Easy Way for Women to Stop Smoking" last night (in fact, I nearly read all of it).

I'm actually feeling pretty upbeat right now. With being 12 hours smoke free (last one was at 8pm MST last night), my chest is feeling quite a bit better today. It certainly isn't 100% (it probably hasn't been 100% for 25 years: the length of time I've used cigarettes), but I notice significant improvement. I'm hoping that by next week I'll be back on my bike.

Hello, everyone. I'm a new team member from Calgary, AB.

I'm on day 2 of Champix, and I'm about to embark on what must be my dozenth quit attempt. I've set a quit date for the 21st of this month, but I know that many people on Champix actually quit sooner than the date they had originally planned. My quit date may certainly come sooner, but I won't let it be later.

I've just come back from a weeklong vacation, and just like last summer, I came down with Bronchitis on my trip. I'm quite sure this has to do with the amount I smoke on vacation (along with my hubby, and my 20-year-old son), and not with the locales we're visiting. So, I'm also on Advair 250 for the next three months (the doc figures it will help clear the mucus out of my lungs if I have an excess of it after my quit date).

As I'm now dealing with a Bronchitis flare up, I can no longer cycle or use my rowing machine. The doc advised me to give the Advair a couple of weeks to get to work before I get back to either of those. I suppose being able to breathe would be good before I attempt either of those things again, wouldn't it?

I'm really ticked off at myself right now. You'd think that after getting Bronchitis last summer (which took three months to completely recover from) that I would have taken steps to ensure it didn't happen again.
