hi, it will be 3weeks this tuesday that i have quit smoking. i was taking champix but stopped after 8 days of not smoking as i felt extremely tired and was starting to gain weight. they did help take the edge off and stay positive about quitting. now i am feeling anxious, i am eating all the time and when i am not eating i feel like i want to sleep so i do not have to think about it. the weekends are harder than weekdays as i am working during the week and have started biking with my son in the evening too keep us busy. i am hoping the thoughts of wanting to smoke will subside but i am feeling very on edge and i feel as though it is hard to be around anybody because of the way i am feeling. my husband quit too and i thought it would be harder for him but he is not feeling the way i am at all. i am feeling guilty because i have kids and i feel like i am very short with them at times and i am always thinking i am a bad mother because of my moodiness. i hope things will start to improve because i know the benefits are huge i just hope this does not change my personality forever!!View Thread
