So I recently decided I was going to try and stop smoking.
I have always said I would but kept making excuses why I never got round to it.
I started smoking around age 13 and I am now 18.
My boyfriend has never liked me smoking but recently got really upset because he smells of smoke all the time because he spends so much time around me whilst I am smoking. Also his parents were upset because they said I wasn't just putting my health at risk it was also effecting his and they have started to notice that he coughs a lot and his breathing is deeper. So after he seriously talked to me about it I decided to suck it up and give it a go.
I also need to stop because we are buying a house and I was spending £6.40 on smoking every day, which would make a huge difference to our financial circumstances if I was to continue smoking and also move out.
So far its been 2 days without a cigarette, im using patches and gum.
Just felt if I joined it might help to know that other people understand that its hard as my boyfriend doesn't smoke and doesn't understand the withdrawal symptoms are actually extreme at times.
