No surprise there sweetheart.  Who wouldn't break down under your circumstances.  I know I would have.  Take a little bit of time to gather yourself back up, dust yourself off and rebuild.  That's what I said to myself when I faced such a devesting blow to my marriage.  It can really nock the stuffing out of you and it takes awhile before you can find the strength to carry on.  Take time for yourself and know that this is not something you can recover from quickly. 

You will be rebuilding yourself for next while so don't expect to much from yourself.  If you can find the strength to quit smoking in the midst of  all of this, you will find it very helpful in strengthening your self-esteem and minimize anxiety and stress.  Cause, as we all know, smoking causes stress and anxiety right not relieves it!  You can use that 'I quit smoking' as a part of your new ICON.  Rise up a whole new and improved you who won't tolerate a cheating, lying or smoking partner.   And, the pickings for a new relationship open up significantly when non-smokers can be added to your list of potentials - Just sayin.

I feel for ya girl - I truly do - but you have to use this time to rise and shine to a more authentic non-smokin you and you will be so glad you did. 

Now is the time to look after yourself and do what's right for you.

Hi Sassy!

Thank you for checking back in!  Sorry that you lost your quit...but I understand the stress...and am glad you are going to regroup and try again!

HI Sassy, your relapse is understandable. 26 years with one person who ends up betraying you is not easy. No one deserves to be lied to and cheated on. Take your time, we are rooting for you to get back on the quit train. People can give advice all day long but when it comes to relationships, people do what they feel is right at that moment. I hope you find your way of handling this difficult time in a way that is beneficial to you and your health.

Not good but good.  Still smoking but so ready to quit.   Just have to get out walking more and find a fidget of some sort.  Toothpicks or match sticks lol, puzzle.   IDK
