Day 2 of Champix, full strength (week two of the prescription), and I find myself frequently dazed and confused. Yes, arguably I'm probably frequently dazed and confused, only now I'm recognizing it a bit better. I pour drinks and forget them on the counter, leave burners on on the stove, walk around to do a chore or errand and forget what I set out to do before I arrive ...

I reread the instructions. I have to set a quit date. Friday it is, smoking is giving me little to no satisfaction at the moment, it shouldn't be a problem.

And I make lists. Nothing will get done without a list, and so I keep my pad beside me while I read and make my notes. Never have I so needed the crutch. Although I recall now the spaciness of others quitting on the drug and it makes sense. Now I wonder if the side effects will persist, or diminish, the duration of the drug, but I'll see and let you know.
