I'll be six weeks quit on Sunday 1st June and it is literally a miracle to me that I can actually say that....On 10th May (exactly 3 weeks into my quit journey) my father-in-law passed away suddenly. It was such a huge shock and absolutely heartbreaking, we are a very close family so it hurt alot. The added stress of being responsible for funeral arrangements and everything else has made things even harder...but I refused to use my bereavement as an excuse to start smoking again. My father in law was a chronic smoker and it is very likely that it contributed directly to his death so I resolved to stay strong and....miraculously I was able to (just). It's been really tough, I'm not going to lie and I've been very up and down but I truly feel free of nicotine now (the only silver lining in this whole tragedy) because if I can go through this and not smoke then why would I ever crack for less.
