Weekends are testing

Ive managed to handle things well during the week. But Im a bit worried about the weekend. Have to deal with OH smoking. Teenagers being teenagers and seem extra demanding just to get under my skin. Its as if the nicotine monster cant get to me directly so is going all out to get me through family. Roll on Monday. Never thought I'd say that:o

    Hi Smoky Bear

    yes i agree weekends can be tough but at least at weekends you can get up go for walks, a run, a car drive, shopping anything because now you are a non smoker you are not tied down to staying in smoking and watching tele, enjoy your weekend because at work all you have to look forward to is freedom at 5pm, lol........ i think you are brill as you have a partner thats smokes and you dont get tempted to smoke. Good luck to you Smokey Bear this weekend will be a breeze for you :)

  • Oh boy do I know how scary the first weekend is! I have kids at the worst age, full on hormones and attitude, a husband puffing away, and it all seems sooooo long! But, you get through one and you realise it's ok! You can do it. Lots of deep breathing, and some time on your own, a good book (or whatever you enjoy), nice food, treat yourself! You'll get through if you want to enough.

    Stay strong, stay clean, smell lovely! :)

  • I don't know why it is, but when I read that deedeebel has coped with similar stuff i feel I can no longer use it as an excuse. Great the more I read the less excuses I have. Once I accept I have no reason to smoke I just wont:D

  • Hi Smokey :)

    You're doing just fine hang in there OK

    I know how scary weekends can be especially that first non smoking one but as you suspect this is those sneakt little B.............d Nico :eek: Demons trying to lure you back don't let them get through this first weekend and it will never be so hard for you again

    Nothing has changed except that you no longer smoke your OH and your teenagers are just the same as they've always been but you've become a non smoker and the demons don't like it in fact they're furious and think they can get at you through your family

    DEFY THEM AND SHOW THEM WHO'S THE BOSS HERE it will never be this hard again at the weekend Promise

    Love
