Oh my days...I need sleep!

Day ten (actually eleven) and lookie here...I'm awake still!!!!! 😞😞😞. The irony, I'm awake cause I've quit and my husband can't sleep and I'm convinced that's because he's smoking so much!!!! Been reading how much rubbish is in the fags and I'm convinced that is what's causing his sleepless nights, stomach trouble, tiredness etc...could that be? He smokes over 60 a day...

Hi Rachel, well done on staying quit. Yes smoking does affect your body in many different ways, stomach problems, and insomnia, are common . Get your hubby to read some of the quit stories on this page (right hand side under topics.) He may well think about stopping after reading some of our members stories. I myself have a story of what happened to me. ( it comes under thank you quit support). The amount of cigarettes people smoke doesn't mean a lot except you get more addicted to nicotine. You can still get cancer . I know from first hand experience.

You could also go into the short films and pictures, which are very explicit.

Good luck. and carry on being smokefree. :)


Jilly girl, you my friend are an inspiration... I shall ask him to have a snoop on here...think it would help him to feel a part of a 'community of quitters' opposed to someone who's doing it alone, I know it's helping me anyway. I shall have a look at the films too...thank you for your support and hope you are ok? Saw one of your posts about chemo, but I didn't know what to say, no words for what you've gone through, so sorry to hear but love your positivity ☺️
