My Daughter left this morning for Boot Camp in the Army, not to mention I was given the opportunity of a lifetime with my job in terms of lots more money, they are going to pay for my move, but I would need to move out to California from Florida where I currently work from home. The position is something you dont pass up, my husband is refusing to go, he said he would divorce me first before going to Cali, between my daughter leaving and this huge opportunity I may have to pass up I am so stressed, I started smoking, just a few a day but I need all of your help to get me through this without cigs, The chantix is working but I am afraid I am becoming weak, too much stress.
Hotdam you can get through this. My mother had a part of her lung removed in June because they believed she had lung cancer eventhough she never smoked thankfully not I thought I'd crack under the pressure but I made it through smoking again won't solve any of your problems nor will they help you to make a decision. I don't know what to tell you about the job of a lifetime. I live in NY Florida and California are almost identical to me. I say talk calmly and rationally to your hubby and see why he's so scared of change.
Thanks for the support Liam I am doing ok now, havent had a craving or thought about a cig in hours and hours, so far so good. dont know what to do about the promotion opportunity but cigs are not the answer, spoke to my daughter a few times as she is on her way to SC so I feel much better.
Don't feel so bad.. Those feelings u feel after u caved would make u wanna stop even more.. I quit for 4 years and went back for a few months and stop and went back again. I know i can quit cuz i did it b4. I just have to make my mind up and want to. But little slip here and there .. it's ok.
Wow 4 years, yes it is tough especially when you go back to it., but we can do it, I do find myself lighting up taking 1 drag and throwing the rest out. this happens once in a while. the psych part is the worst. the feeling that you have to have it thats the part I hate.
Duttin, how did it go with your daughters graduation? my daughter has called home 2 times and both times I wasnt at home so I havent been able to talk to her yet since she left. I am still doing good with my quit, how about you?
