  • Me too on day 3.

    Hi Guys n Gals,

    Glad to be here.I had my last ciggy on 30/01/08 at 07:40 AM in the morning.

    I normally smoke only 2 or 3 a day.First ciggy will be at 07:30 in the morning before going to toilet.That is the f*****g problem for me.Can't get free motion without one.and then at 02:30 pm and 04:00 PM.That's it.

    Struggling but decided to give up this time.Other than that no problem at all.Yeah getting angry very soon on my wife and kids since I stopped smoking.Trying to control that as well.I love my kids a lot and they are the reason for me to stop smoking.My elder kid is 5 yr old and I managed till today to hide the fact that his dad smokes.I want to be a good example to him.so since 2002 I smoked only when I can hide from him.My wife knows that I smoke but she is the reason for me to start again when I stopped couple of times in the past.Some or othe fight with her will make me feel frustrated and start again.So even this time also I feel the same that she will some day fight with me, could be my fault or hers but result is me start to smoke again.Once, the reason was boredom for me.My wife and kid went back to their hometown for 6 months when my second baby was due and I was all alone which made me start smoking again and continued till 3 days back.My wife knows the fact but my kid still feels that I don't smoke.

    Since I smoke very few,I care a damn for budget or my health but I want to set a good example to my kids.

    Sorry for boring you all with the stuff but thought of sharing the facts.I never told anyone that I stopped smoking or started smoking now or in the past.

  • Welcome on board and well done on quitting,

    You make the choice to smoke regardless of the world around you, It is true these situations steer us towards smoking again and fighting is a frequent reason for picking it up again (I should know! tut!) but it would be wrong for me to Blame my partner, as he can't walk on eggshells all his life for my sake! and I am ultimately the one who chose to smoke!

    You are doing this for you, only you have the power to do this. No matter how much or how little you smoke it is a hard thing to quit. Well done for making that choice for yourself!

    Toilet probs are common, plenty of water will help but with time it will ease. There is a substance in a cigarette that acts as a laxative, we become used to this. It will pass.

    Good luck and stay strong

  • Thanks for moral support and motivation.

    Thanks Buffy,

    I will try to stay strong and will be alright as long as I don't feel low or frustrated,angered by any issue with my wife.Yeah I agree with you that I am the one who decided to stop so should stop and stay quit.Thanks for the support and keep motivating me.

    Cheers.
