Can't deal with partner's anger while he quits

ParsleyCake · 03/11/2014 14:34

I'm pregnant and my partner is quitting smoking. My hormones mean that tears well up at the slightest provocation and I can't deal with his temper anymore. Whenever he tries to quit, I try to not annoy him but sometimes I can't help myself and if he snaps at me I snap right back and then burst into tears and before I know it we're screaming at each other.

I'm just at a loss. does this pass soon? It's day one of bis latest go and we'fe already had a shouting match.

As rb says it varies a lot.

He needs lots of space and he needs to take responsibility for not inflicting his temper on you. Do you have other DC? Can you suggest he goes out for a walk when he's being like this or do you need him around for parenting?

Good luck to you both!

For some people it'll pass quickly, for some it will take weeks. I bet you've done the old 'Well if you're going to be this bad just go and buy some cigerattes!'.

Be patient with him, the first week will be a real struggle for him!
