I now have just one week of my anti-smoking drug (Champix) to go. By then, it will have been 11 weeks since I last smoked. I will confess to feeling a considerable amount of apprehension as the point approaches at which I must finally swim out unassisted into clear blue water. Right now, I am going through one of those intermittent episodes where I could quite easily relapse and start smoking again. This makes me wonder if I have now become so habituated to the drug that it isn’t working any more.
I guess I will find out soon enough just how effective the drug still is and the degree of my reliance on this pharmaceutical crutch………..
