I'm looking for some help/advice quitters!
How do you approach keeping stopped at the weekends? I seem to be doing OK through days 1-5. I seem to have broken the habit (initially) for my normal working days. But the prospect of the weekend still fills me with dread.
The hardest time for me is Saturday early evening. In the past, I'd have got the kids to bed, opened a bottle of wine and had at least one cig straight away. I never smoke in front of the kids (boy of 3 and girl of 6 months), so Saturday was normally pent sneaking round trying to grab a quick fag or having none at all for a long period until this point on Saturday night.
Sunday is always a bit better, because the evening feels more like a normal "school night".
So just looking for any tips or advice really? "Stay off the booze" springs imediately to mind. But I don't think it's the drink necessarily. It's that whole "AAaaaannnd RELAX" feeling when the kids are finally packed off to bed and I can finally get my feet up.
Feels better already having written it down actually!
