Your poor wife, I do feel badly for her with shingles, that sucks!  Very painful..........

I am fortunate right now that my husband is out of state until Christmas.......I get a break from that temptation.  I can tell you that beating yourself up for not being further will only make matters worse and look at how many cigarettes you have NOT smoked, even if you have had some slips.  That is significant to your health!  Coming from someone who actually has emphysema, you really need to quit for your health!

Hope today is awesome for you

Thanks Kathy, yes you're right, just concentrate on what I have, a regular quit. with temptation. I am sorry to hear about your emphysema, you have a very good reason to quit.

It is raining very hard here the radar is yellow with splotches of red, intense! Trust you are finding it easier with your partner away, less confronting that is, his smoking. The wife is not smoking as frequently at the moment, all she wants to do is sleep. that willl be good for her. Today we have to try and get her into an opthalmologist, because her eye is in danger of losing sight,, she has cream anantibiotic I think to place in her eye every 4 hours, the GP gave her that yesterday.

Onward we go, help is on it's way, thanks for the chat

Kind regards

Anthony

Wife hasn't smoked for three days what with shingles and all, could this be the start of a quit, she says they just want to make her puke. Keeping fingers crossed, Meanwhile doing all I can to make her feel comfortable, the side of her face looks terrible, swollen and red, taking heaps of meds plus antibiotic eye ointment, praying for her quick recovery.

Meanwhile no cigarettes 19 hours, 41 minutes and 41 seconds. 12 cigarettes not smoked, saving $17.81. Life saved: 1 hour, 0 minutes.

Kind regards

My new quit date is going to be tomorrow, had a real bad yesterday, was livid to say the least. At least i didnt have any angry outbursts but i couldn't keep it bottled in or else i would implode so i smoked. Didnt solve anything, but way better than losing my temper. 

Yeah well make it a December to remember like the Lexus commercial..

Hi Anthony,

  Glad to see you on here. I hope today is going well for you. I am still hanging around with a few months now. Truthfully, I don't know how many days exactly unless I look at my quitmeter. It is easier for me to just check in every once in a while. Today has been a bit of a struggle, but still okay. I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. : )

Hi Mercy,

Thanks for the greeting, I have just got back from a Christmas party, just sandwiches and Christmas cake and grapes and watermelon plus a cup of tea, good company. The real good news is that my wife has given up smoking,,, hope it lasts, Going away for Christmas up North to be with friends, both non-smokers. win win. 

Trust your health issues are settling down, I've finished my course of anti-inflammatories for my shoulder and elbow should be able to get into the weights again next year. This time I will pace myself. 

This quit is going well, so far, Two days, 17 hours, 39 minutes and 2 seconds. 41 cigarettes not smoked, saving $59.39. Life saved: 3 hours, 25 minutes.

Now I don't have the temptation of smokes in the house, they're all gone ,wife gave them to a neighbour.

All the best for the Holiday season

Kind regards

Anthony
