I really need to stop smoking.
I've got at the moment another awful cold and chest infection and this time I've got to go and have a chest x ray due to coughing up blood.
I'm only early thirties but have smoked since I was 13 lightly
To where I am today at 20 a day
Even when I'm gasping for air ffs.

I'm so scared to have the x ray and it's really made me want to stop. I've tried everything except champix.
I've had pnd and ocd tendencies so I'm worried about my mental health as I've read the 2 aren't advised together.

Any experiences positive or negative?

My only experience of Champix is that it was extremely affective at stopping dh from smoking, he had completely stopped before he completed the course of tablets. One of the side effects was extremely vivid dreams, not all pleasant and he still mentions them occasionally nearly ten years later. Do you have any mental health support, or could your smoking cessation hcp refure you. I hope you find away to give up Flowers
