After reading up for a while now and cutting back on smoking for awhile now I finally quit smoking once again. I started smoking when I was 18 quit for two years in my 20's and tried several times since without much success. I went from smoking a pack a day for years, then finally down to a half pack over the last year. I change from smoking any where I could to first stopping the smoking at home, then cutting out smoking in the car, then finally now at work (the company went smoke free as of 4/1/13) I bought some patches and now with a lot of gum and mints I have finally stopped. So far I am doing alright in the fact that today was the first day back after quitting and even with the heck that went on first and foremost I didn't smoke and second I still don't want to smoke. It is tough I know and it is only been 4 days, but all I can say is it is a start.View Thread
As a smoker I know where he is coming from. There is no excuse or justification that I can say for myself or your husband, and you do have every right to be upset. Me personally I feel my reasons for smoking are for either being upset, stressed or a combination of the two. I do not smoke at home, in the car, or any place else but work. I can go days without touching a cigarette at all and not think about it at all. still not an excuse, but I realize what I am doing however I am still looking for the right way or combination to help me to quit, hopefully he will too. thank you for your input it is helpfulView Thread
