I was trying to get pregnant and then I did and stayed quit. My story is more about how I succumbed to temptation and how I started smoking again. My husband and I got into a habit in the evening of sittin...

    Well my husband has been categorically told that he must never again smoke if he wants to get better. He is in hospital at the moment with a horrible abcess and associated infection. He was told yesterday that smoking causes the problem and if he doesn't stop he will be dealing with it for the rest of his life. I decided I am going to make it easier on him and quit myself. So today is the ...

    Can anyone shed some light on why the heck I will spend money on smokes even though I have bills to pay, kids to feed etc. There are such compelling strong reasons to NOT smoke. I can't understand why I am so pathetic and weak that I will pick smokes first. Anyone have any advice or the same experience???

    I have slipped up. I want to know if anyone can help me work out my stupid head. I was doing well all day but this evening I got into an argument with my daughter as she was acting out and resentful because of my "no smoking in house or car" rules. I went home to get bad news about my son not making it in soccer trials and everything hit at once. My husband who was quitting with me jumped at m...

    Hi all This is supposed to be my Day 1 .. but I have to admit I have relapsed. Last night we had a major family crisis and I smoked like a chimney all night and carrying on to this morning. Quitting just wasn't my focus as I dealt with continuing issues. I am still quitting because I cant deal with this guilt and shame towards myself anymore. Its not right when you think "hmm should I buy fo...
