Before I knew it I would be back on the smokes and smoking what I was previously smoking before the weeks end. I kept telling myself I love smoki...
Give up with your partner. Praise each other and be proud of each day you both stay smoke free. Tell other people in your life what you are doing and this will also help you be more motivated. Every day you don't smoke is a day closer to a happier healthy life.
