    Hey everyone I’m on my 3rd day of taking Duromine.
    Hardly an apatite but I do get quite hungry if I go too long without food. I no a lot about nutrition so I eat very healthy. I’ve actually started making myself eat more because I was eating very little the first two days and not enough carbs.

    Feeling very alert and have a lot of energy. I also feel happy and hardly stressed like I used to be which is a big thing for me. I’m just so laid back
    No side affects at all apart from a dry mouth sometimes and some hot flushes here and there.
    I’ve been keeping track of my heart rate through my Fitbit. Most of the time I’m in fat burning mode. Around 95-115. Mainly when I’m up and about.
    I have lost weight I can just tell, flatter stomach no bloat and more energy. I sleep just fine as well actually I sleep better! I’m so relaxed when it comes to bed time. Although I do get up several times for my 6 month old and 2 year old who doesn’t like to sleep haha!
    I wake up feeling great and I’m never tired during the day.
    Excited to see my stats next Monday

    One question though- my Fiancé’s Birthday is this Sunday and we’re thinking of having some drinks down the pub with friends. Can I drink? I normally drink wine or whiskey. Thanks, hope you’re all having a great day

    Another thing.
    I smoke maybe 1-3 a day and vape. Trying to quit but since starting Duromine I CANT STOP I’m craving them immensely. Is this a side affect?

    It’s driving me insane I hate smoking and I was almost able to just use the vape and then I’d wean off that as well. But nope I’m fully chain smoking almost.

    Looks like everything’s going nice and smooth. As to your questions… Duromine and alcohol should never be mixed. Some people say that they feel ok, when mixing the two, while others report reeeeeeally unpleasant events. I would suggest you to skip a pill on Sunday, and may be on Monday, if you stop the celebration drinks later than 8 hours before taking the pill, because the alcohol will still be in your system. As for smoking, yes, I have noticed a couple of users having the same issue with the cigarettes. One user even quite smoking quite some time ago, but started back quite heavily during the course of Duromine. I wish you all the willpower in the world. Stay strong and try to keep yourself busy with something, distract yourself. Have a lovely day!

    Okay I was going to have just 1 or 2. The good thing about Duromine I’ve noticed is that I feel really good so I think I can still have a good time without getting tipsy or anything.
    If I do want to have a couple of drinks I will skip the pill otherwise I’ll just keep taking it and enjoy myself alcohol free.

    Oh bummer, I’ve almost finished this packet once I do I’m sticking with the vape. I don’t want to get really hooked again. Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things I’ve ever tried to do. If I’m stressed I’ll smoke, sad angry you name it.
    I need to kick it! Hoping the cravings will go away once my body is more used to the Duromine.

    @Absinthe11 - I hear you about the smoking - its something I have been trying to quit as well (not successful as yet though!) and the Duromine tends to make me want to chain smoke!

    I am just chewing sugarless gum - and trying to stay active. If I am constantly moving, it tends to lessen the craving a little.

    Good idea thanks for reminding me, I have gum in the car!
    I’m starting to feel more tired later on now but it’s a good tired. I’m so relaxed.

    So day 6 and I’ve weighed in.
    3.3 kilos lost! And 20 1/2 cm loss! The bulk of the cm’s came off from my top half.

    Happy happy! Still need to eat more I’m barely scraping 1100 calories and I should be getting to 1600 to keep my body fueled.

    So two and a half weeks in.
    I’ve lost 6 kilos (Happy dance)
    Scales haven’t moved much in the last week BUT I have been losing a lot of cm’s!
    I’ve lost 49 cm total. Havent got out to exercise lately and my eating could be better which I am working on.
    I am, however on my feet pretty much all day, cleaning up after a very messy 2 1/2 year old and looking after a 6 month old. I’m constantly cleaning the house and running errands most days so that’s got to count for something right?
    Feeling good and sleeping well apart from being woken up by a teething baby several times during the night

    Hope you’re all doing good! Xx

    @Absinthe11 I meant to ask how was your smoking and vaping going?

    I've managed ok, but this week with the no exercise has seen me reaching for them, so have had to make a effort to go and do something else.

    Oh my smoking has been the same really and my son wrecked my vape so no vaping for me!
    I’m trying to cut back but finding it very difficult.

    That’s good you’re able to find something else to do. I’m basically at home all day with two little ones so not much for me to do to take my mind off it sadly.

    Thanks @Dre *hugs*

    I have gotten so much motivation, information and just general kindness from being here, that its great to share what I have been learning.

    Sometimes it only takes one other person to offer a different insight to make you have that "Aha moment" and I've had many just by reading this forum :)

    Hope your weekend is a fabulous one!

    So I’m seeing my doctor today to follow up on some test results. I injured my foot a while back and had x rays done ect.
    But she will also want to chat about how I’ve been doing on Duromine. I took my last pill this morning and she told me she’d prescribe me another month but she mentioned she might put me on 40mgs if all is going well. Which it has been.
    Do you think I should stick to 30mg?
    We will talk about it obviously but what can I expect from 40mg?
    By the way since starting I’ve lost 7 kilos and a lot of cm’s I’ve got 13 kilos to go.
    I’m hoping to lose another 6 or so using Duromine then losing the rest on my own.
    The fact it suppresses my appetite is a big thing for me I love it. I don’t eat out of boredom like I used to.
    Hope you’re all having a lovely day xx
