I am so scared. I mean I'm so happy that he's decided to quit but it's the edginess and bad mood that I'm not good with. He will start tomorrow but it's already tense in the house... HELP!!

ha, he's the one that needs support, you'll be fine grin

have lots of things lined up to take his mind off it and try not to react if he's a bit of a shit for the first few days.

It's bloody hard work... I seriously felt like I was going mad.

get him some bananas and a B Vitamin supplement, they can help to take the edge off the craving. Watch out for particularly bad times........worse ones for me are after a meal, afternoon sit down with a cup of tea etc. The ones that were attached to a routine are the ones i miss most.

Good Luck to both of you......i gave up in 2004 for 3 years and smoked on and off (but mostly on) for the last 18 months and am on day three of giving up properly again.

come and talk to me mine is giving up too I feel the pain. Although he hasnt been too bad this time round. quite a few quiet spells and frantic gum chewing but no twitching.. yet. I'm going out and leaving him with 4 kids tomorrow so what he'll be like when I get back ...
