I am on week 9 of Champix now, I stopped smoking about day 8, great for 1st 2-3 weeks but then I had a bout of aggression so bad that I stormed out and had a ciggy. Then had another later that day. This is supposed to make you loose the pleasure in smoking, did it heck, my ciggy was great, just as it always was. So far have had 4 attacks of anger, all unexpected, sometimes feel like ripping someone's head off, other times want to tell people exactly what I think of them, being a carer this is not a good idea. Other effects have been dreams, mostly wild and wierd, severe bloating so bad I nearly came off Champix, nausea for about half an hour following the tablet, and muscle aching. Cravings still coming a few times a day, mild but pass in a few minutes, ciggies barely off my mind, not one day passed yet when I haven't wanted one, just don't need one unless it seems life throws a spanner in the works and throws my routine out. Well I'm sticking with them even though they scare me after reading stories. I wish I knew all the facts and read all the stories before I decided to take them and I may not have chosen them, but there again I would probably been smoking too as I have never suceeded before.
