Things in my life, but not smoking I won't give in

You see my sister had a accident lost part of her skull, and brain damage.

My husbands a functioning alcoholic.

My grandson is waiting results he's the size of a 18 month old, he's just about five.

My son is addicted to drugs (please don't judge)

My husband is undergoing tests as not well lost two stone in six weeks.

Our house is a nightmare, just money money money. , and getting no where fast.

Our other son has chronic breathing problems. And health issues

My daughter has just left her partner of 10yrs

So while it's all difficult and so saddening, I,m just pushing on, and while I try my hardest to help, and be there. It is indeed a strain

But I,m trying to just keep going with my quit.

Keep going if you can

So I guess wha I,m saying is, if you can keep going with your quit, brilliant,if it's not the right time, they is always tomorrow.

i have indeed relished smoking is not helping me, I think it does, but it doesn't, life happens, and we have to move forward if we can.

Tracey, no one deserves such a long list of hardships to bear. You are a remarkably strong person to cope and to be so strong in managing your quit. My thoughts are with you - stay strong
