I'm only on day 2.. but I'm feeling pretty full of willpower still, which feels good i have the odd ' argh i need to go outside and smoke' moments, which I am managing to dispell by cleaning or doing something fun with my toddler.
Question is- do you all have supportive partners? I live with my partner, and we have had a very rocky couple of years, and he was going to leave at Christmas. We've decided to have another try, and I don't expect hearts n flowers from him, but a little respect for the fact I'm trying to quit smoking would help!
Last night, on my 1st day, i was doing fine, and then he had a moan at me saying I'd be back on the cigs in no time, and then I'd look a fool in front of everyone( as I've told all my mates.. reason being the more that know, the harder it is to have a bad day!)
I wasn't impressed by his lack of faith( he is a smoker too) and turned it around as he'd told me he was going to stop too, yet came home reeking of smoke!!
I keep getting told I can't have patches as they're not cheap( but cheaper than smoking all week!!) and I'll 'probably fail anyway'
I am trying to ignore his remarks, but they actually hurt a lot, as this means a lot to me- am i over sensitive?!
I'm just wondering how many others have unsupportive partners, how you deal with it? ( apart from slap them?!!)
He was smoking outside the back door when i came down today- and although it's only my 2nd day, I didn't want to join him - :D
