Ok sooo here I go again.. this time with Champix.. anyone else tried this?
the side effects sound ghastly.. but at least the vomiting will help with potential weight gain (.. one has to look on the bright side eh? )

experiences anyone?..

Yep, tried Champix - I got really bad nausea and other less severe side effects. If I skipped a pill - then the nausea would go away. Hardly smoked at all while on it (likely because I was felling so sick) but never fully quit. Persisted for nearly four weeks but the nausea won out - and back onto the smokes now.

Been growing our own for a while now :-)

You'd be very surprised how good home grown is. You can certainly tell there are no chemical additives. We mix it with a bit of store bought tobacco just to improve the burning quality (i.e. keeps the smoke smoking). But to grow enough to support a two smoker household we need to be planting, harvesting and drying more regularly. Mind you, with the cost of smokes we might as well employ one of us full time on this job!!! :D :D :D

Best wishes - hope Champix works for you and you do quit! No matter how many times I've tried, I'll always try again and again .. and someday, I'll break free!!!!

so you are sucking smoke into your lungs and you can tell there are no chemical additives, this would be important why?
Does organically grown tobacco have more health benefits?

Sort of like asking Korea if their next bomb is being made from ethically sourced uranium

We crumple it up by hand and then stick it in the food processor.

Works a treat.

Haha, yes, I knew that would sound funny, especially to a non-smoker :D but here's a comparison if you're a whisky drinker - you know a good one by that smooth, no bite, no kick, just pure 'n easy feeling on the way down? That's fresh tobacco with no additives - devine [^][^][^].

Grew my own for a number of years, even ended up moderating a British forum for it. My cutter was a heavy old gullotine with a threaded feeder. Form the tobacco into blocks, then cut them a turn at a time on my cutter. Worked well. But not being a smoker anymore my gear is long gone

Family members have used Champix, I don't think the nausea was terribly bad for them, they managed to cut down after the champix, but not give up entirely.

:rolleyes: That's what my father said until he died of pancreatic cancer - a common cause of death among smokers. - At least it was a quicker death than the Emphysema was promising him :( [V]

While smoking is a causative factor in many cancers, pancreatic cancer is 100 times more likely in heavy drinkers than smokers.

Terry and I were both very heavy smokers[xx(] ...gave up cold turkey on 23rd August 2007 ...we will have been smokefree for 6 years this year:D ...hardest and best thing we have ever done[^]
Eldest daughter tried Champix but it gave her very bad dreams ...so she then went cold turkey with the help of Allan Carr's Book......
All the best for this attempt ....hope you succeed :)
Cheers

Leonie & Zoo!!! :silly: :woohoo:
