Thanks Timbo for the encougement!! 

 
I am using Cytisine under the name of Tabex.

It's a natural product derived from the plant Laburnum.

It's made by Sopharma, a respected Bulgarian firm : https://www.sopharma.com/

In Eastern Europe it's quite commonly used to help people quit smoking.

The drug works like Chantix but with no side effects. Chantix (Varenicline )

was originally based on Cytisine.

And for the "almost 3 days" I quit, it seems to work.

I don't have any real cravings but instead I think

"Normally I would smoke now."....and that

several times a day of course.... stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

Hi Wimsomnia, 
(Grinning)
 At this point in time it IS all about you so don't worry about being egocentric.  This is YOUR quit journey and NOBODY can do it for you...it's all on YOU! I like that you still have a sense of humor, especially at the start of your quit. A "can do" attitude really does help. 
 I have not heard of the Cytisine before, I hope it works for you.  Watch out for all the triggers and stay strong!

Thanks for the encouragement Tim!!
 
I already read most of "My Program info".
 
I also read the Allen Carr book, and also a Dutch one on the subject.
 
I am quitting with the help of Cytisine, a bit like Chantix but with hardly any side effects.
 
Three sentences beginning with"I" seems a bit egocentric but maybe that's necessary
to introduce yourself properly....
