Ok it has been 4 weeks & let me tell you, it has not been easy.I get aggrevated really quick. My 15 year old wants to drive all the time & I will not let him. He yells at me & I go back at him really fast.I hope & pray this passes soon. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. All the best to you guys. Alberta
Hang in there mate, teenage boys are hard enough to handle at the best of times, even when you’re fully fit.
The boy has discovered driving, it the most exciting thing ever, added the fact his hormones are all over the place, he is going to be little bit hard to control.
We didn’t mention the fact that you are going through withdrawal symptoms, caused by giving up one of the most additive drugs on this planet.
I taught my three children to drive and believe me it was no easy task. My patience was tested daily, I have to say I lost my cool many a time. In time the entire commotion well pass into history and day will come when your son will be grateful you were firm with him.
Mate, from the bottom of my heart, I wish all the very best. You will beat the smokes, and teach your son to drive. I reckon I can bank on that.
Thanks George. Did I forget to mention I have 4 kids? And this is only the second one to drive. I told my oldest today he has to get his life in order. Because in 6 years my 3rd son will be driving too. And in 7 years my daughter. And I don't think I can take to much more. But I am staying away from my smokes. Alberta

I am so happy to hear you have made it 4 weeks plus!!! The best thing I can tell you is that the stress is going to be there no matter what. If you smoked, it wouldn't actually make the stress go away. It would add to the stress by putting you back into the world of *needing* smokes and stressing over when you can have your next smoke. Sounds to me like you have enough stress so don't add more to your plate! I do feel you on the kids issue and I think you are doing great. Well done and just keep with it. Cigs have no more power over you!

G’day Alberta 1967,
I had a good Christmas thank you. Spent it with family mostly, we tend to stay at home these day, which is good.
I knew you'd still be off the smokes. One day, you would have quit for so long, you will forget who long you have quit for.
All the best to you and your family.
