New here

Hi everyone, I'm new to register with the site but I have been reading the threads for a couple of days now. I stopped smoking on 19/07/12, cold turkey.

I am, so far, suffering a few problems. Flu like symptoms are a little difficult to bear but my worse problem is my, still smoking, husband. He seems to have isolated himself from me which is hard as I could really do with someone to talk to as I go through this. Hoping you guys can be my substitute husband :)

  • Thanks guys. I feel really comforted by the fact I can call upon your experience and advise.

    I am hoping my other half will decide to take the leap soon too. I know he wants to but he tends to bury his head when it comes to smoking. I had used his smoking as an excuse not to try for years. I realised that I had to just go for it with or without him. I am so so glad I have :)

  • Stick with it. You will get lots of support from this forum and your other half may eventually come to his senses.
