By heck...smokers STINK!

Hello there gorgeous people;)

First of all, I have no room I belong to on here...I am soooo confused! Is it me? am I abit dim? I am into week 6...and feel a fraud posting in month 2 :rolleyes:

Anyway...my partner who stopped smoking 2 weeks into my quit, has started smoking again, I haven't said much about it, as I know how difficult it is, and I really don't want to be on my high horse about it, but since he has started smoking again, I cannot stand to be near him because the smell of stale fags is making me wretch! It really is a horrible smell, and am mortified to think that is how I used to smell....the bed smells of stale fags-I'm sick of changing it every 2 days, his breath smells of them really bad...will this hatred of smelling stale fags subside?-as it is sooooo strong at the moment, and I am hoping the longer I quit the less I will notice the smell????:mad:

    Aww that's a shame, and yes it really does stink!!

    Think it's an ex-smoker thing though, never noticed it that much when i social smoked, or before that but now - eepers I can spot a smoker at 100m!!

  • Hiya Gemma! hope all is well with you ...:D

    Hiya, I'm not too bad thanks!!

    Glad you're so strong in your quit :D

  • Stay strong sweetpea, hopefully when he sees that you're staying strong and keeping on he'll decide to get back on the wagon - with any luck, the male ego will kick in (if she can, then so can I!)

    Thanks Kat xx....I hope he does, I worry about him :confused: sat next to him now with a pack of fags between us.....at least he goes out to smoke-couldn't stand him smoking in the house!

    And...yes, still feel strong, had some bad urges last week, but I think its because he started again, and it could have been so easy for me to have that 'just one' but I have confessed to my addiction, and understand that 'just one'is not an option for me :o

    Thanks for you amazing support on here ladies hugs x

  • I know exactly how you feel SweetB... cannot stand the smell and goodbye kiss before he goes to work, have to tell my hubby ermm hang on... (turns face away from his, big animated deep breath, holds it) ok quick kiss before shoving him out the door :D!! no seriously it pongs, and it lingers and it becomes stale euggghhh!! Sorry to hear he has gone back to cigs but like others say maybe he will try again. I do have days where i really struggle with the smell and it literally makes me heave, and others where i can sit near while he smokes, not sure why that is.... keep strong :)

  • They do effing stink, I was at my mother-in-laws for an hour sunday, whilst we were there she smoked three rollies and a tailored fag - OMG, I was almost gagging, I swear I could smell her breath 3 feet away. When we got home I had to strip and put all what I was wearing in the wash pic4ever.com/images/128fs39... I can't believe I used to inflict that on other people pic4ever.com/images/5150.gif
