So my husband just started smoking after 4 months of nonsmoking. Something about being too stressed out...which we have been. He says that after this last pack he is going to quit again. Well the problem is that I am not sure I can go through it again. I don't mean to sound selfish but he gets REALLY cranky and mean. Before, it would always seem as if he'd try to quit when I was pregnant (which makes sense) but I would be really sensitive and he'd just make me cry alot. He's tried everything from the patch to the lozenge. We have spent so much money. It would be so worth it if he would quit for good. But he quit now for 4 months and then decided to start again!! It was all for nothing! I guess the biggest problem is that I have no idea what he is going through. Maybe if I did I could do something to help him out. Is it really that hard to quit? Or do you think he doesn't really want to?Answer Question

It's a battle and really hard to quit. My most successful time quiting was for 7 months. My husband has been smoke free for 8 months now, and I relapsed and started smoking again about 4 months ago. If my husband picks on me about smoking it irritates me and makes me smoke more so he's laid off. I'm cutting down with the hope of quiting again. The magic trick I've discovered is that the craving will only last for 3-5 minutes. I feel like I can handle being strong for that long. The only time I have a problem is when there are people smoking around me. I also smoke outside, and it was negative 4 this morning so that helps.

I have quit smoking 3 times. I can tell you right now that not only is it extremely hard to do but no one will successfully quit unless they have the desire to do so.
