Unhappy Hubby fell off the wagon

My husband took Chantix and didn't smoke for 8 months. And, since he's never been able to quit for more than a couple days, I consider this a major success.

We were fortunate enough to go to Europe for 3 weeks for vacation. Everyone smokes over there. Well, one day we're sitting at a cafe in Paris drinking espressos and he decides that he wants a cigarette. But, he swears he doesn't want to start smoking again, just be an occasional smoker while we're in Europe.

We've been home for 3 weeks and I finally forced him to tell me yesterday that he's not only bumming cigarettes here and there, but has been purchasing them as well behind my back. He was too humiliated to tell me.

I'm picking up his scrip for Chantix today, but just needed a little support from those who have been there. I feel so bad for him, but I'm kind of mad too. We worked so hard and he's gained so much weight from quitting the first time. I thought all of this was behind us.

Re: Hubby fell off the wagon

rubato, i so feel for you. but you have to remember, and i hate to admit, because I, too am one. We are addicts, nicotine. It will always be there, maybe not as often the longer we have quit, but we will always be addicts. I too am taking chantix, and am okay when i am away from home, but when i am here, i think of them often. and yes, i have even smoked while taking the chantix. Please give him support, he needs that from you.
