My boyfriend and I are quitting together and even though it's lovely to have someone going through the same thing we've also been taking our stress out on each other, which doesn't help! The stress seems to have calmed now, today and yesterday have been much easier so hopefully the worst is over. I'm using champix and it's really helping but my poor partner is going CT so I feel sort of guilty that I have help but I doubt we both would have done it otherwise, my will-power has carried us both.
Over the weekend we tested our biggest triggers, drinking and socialising. I think if I hadn't put our tobacco in the outside wheelie bin and then poured water on it on day 1 we might have stumbled but we didn't even consider buying more. Especially tested when we were at the pub and people were outside smoking but I realised I didn't even really want one it was all in my head.
Either way our health is improving, we do a weekly 5k on Saturday mornings and got our best time ever!
