Hi Tillie,

I gave up with champix about a yr ago but only lasted a week ???
They made me feel really sick, i dont think you should use them while ttc,
i had ivf to have my daughter but doc still suggested i take the pill while on
champix because they didnt no if there were side affects to a pregnancy.

Ive now stopped for 6 weeks using patches though  ;)

Hi Shell,

Im still using the patches for another 2 weeks and i'll start my ivf drugs in 3 weeks. ;D
I think it says to seek medical advice if pregnant but i dont think it mentions ttc and its go to be better than smoking.
Iv used niquitin cq patches and although its still so hard im now on 8 and half weeks and each week gets easier. Go for it hun, theres a few of us giving up and chatting on "samias life without cig" have a read, its certainly kept me from going  ^idiot^

Really hope you do it, pm me anytime if you want any help or advice. ;)

Hopefully speak to you soon. Good luck  ^hugme^

Love Jo

xxxx

Jo.....Your right, Champix makes me feel so sick, guess I have an insite to morning sickness now ;D  Did your sickness go after being on them a while?  I am finding it realling hard as 24/7 I ave cigarettes on the brain but feel so ill I dont feel like doing anyting including smoking.  I hoped that if I didnt smoke for 3 months I would get out of the habit but uv made me wonder.  The patches didnt work for me but a big well done to you.
