I am in my late thirties, smoked from 15 - 28. Quit for 10 years and started again 1 year ago. You don't need to tell me how stupid this is, I thought I was immune from the addiction at this point. I now have young children. My husband and I thought it would be fun to have a couple of smokes one night and that we wouldn't get hooked again. Now I hide in isolation around the back of the house and hide from my kids so they don't know I smoke.
My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer within the last year. You guessed it, I am still smoking. I am in isolation due to COVID and cant leave the house and generally really bored. I am depressed and disappointed in myself. I know I can do it but the first few weeks are hard. I really want it gone forever so I am not thinking about 'scheduling' in smoke breaks all day.
Anyone quit during COVID isolation? I cannot wait 6 months to quit so I have started in ISO. My husband and I are quitting together, he is less addicted than I am. Sounds like a bad idea but I figure we can support one another? Going well so far for day one but it is obviously on my mind. Any advice is appreciated!
