A nice side-effect of my new BS life is focusing more on me, doing for myself, finding ways I can be a better me for me and my son without worrying about WH.
WH smokes - a lot. I smoke 8-10 cigs / day. I always thought it would be impossible to quit with him around. We don't smoke in the house but he is still a trigger.
Now I've learned ALL about identifying and dealing with triggers I thought WTH, lets give it a shot.
Went camping with son and cub scouts over the weekend. Not being home for the first few days and wearing a patch made it SO easy. Didn't even think about it until I went home, walked in the front door and almost went straight out the back door (to smoking place). Caught myself and did something else.
I even went all day sunday until this a.m. without a patch.
Now I had to come back to work. I just made it through my first normal smoke break of the day by googling quit smoking sites, etc. (and with the help of a rootbeer dumdum - cig $ will now be dentist $).
I was a little overwhelmed by all the information on the web.
What I am hoping to find is an online support group for during the work day when I'm tempted to run outside for a cig and some stress relief.
Has anyone here used something they would recommend?
