Hi guys! So I tried to quit a few months ago and only made it to 8 days. I'm trying again (Cold Turkey) and have nearly done 11 whole days. My issue is that the people I live with smoke like chimneys... Indoors. Up until now I've been ok but today I just feel like I'm suffocating on stale smoke. I have hidden in my room all day with the door shut and windows open but honestly all I can smell is stale smoke and I swear I can actually taste it. I feel so sick from it
And as well as giving me a mighty headache; I'm beginning to wonder if passive smoking makes any difference to quitting? Am I inadvertently cheating in some way? Is there any point in quitting when I'm literally surrounded by secondhand smoke?
Any opinions would be appreciated, I guess I'm just feeling pretty down. Not because I miss smoking in any way but because I can't seem to get away from the filthy stuff. It's really depressing when trying so hard.
Hope you're all well. Chrissie.
