I had my last cigarette on April 20th 2008 and gave up using Champix. I have put on 1 stone and gone up almost 2 dress sizes and cannot shift any of it.

I stopped feeling the cravings just before Christmas and that was when I managed to get some sort of control over what I was eating. Have stayed the same weight since then.

I would rather be the size I am now than a smoker and have no intention of ever smoking again. Hail to the champix grin

I wish someone would just invent a healthy fag!

The weight-reduction benefits are stupidly looking attractive sometimes (I won't ever start again though)

Maybe someone could tell me what it is in the fags that curbs your appetite? And do they sell it by the bucket?
