I am in BIG trouble

As I mentioned previously, the deal with my wife was, quit smoking and you can get your big tank.  Well, I did quit and a month after quitting, I got my current tank. 

But, I was not able to stay "quit" and started smoking here and there around the holidays.  For any of you who have tried to quit, you know how that goes.  Just one.  Well, one a day.  Only when I am at work.  Then, before you know it, you are a smoker again. 

Worst part, I didn't tell her.  I thought I could get it under control and stop again.  I was wrong and this weekend, she confronted me.  Not much I can say here, really.  I broke my promise.  I then hid it.  I am in BIG trouble.  So, I have to really dedicate myself to quitting again before she decides to sell the tank right out from under me.  And, I wouldn't blame her, honestly.  I didn't keep up my side of the bargain.

Needless to say this wasn't a pleasant weekend.  There were a lot of "discussions" and I going to try to break this habit once and for all.  It seems ridiculous to me that something like smoking could cause so much trouble in a marriage.  Or, what I mean is, that I could let it get to that point. 

I will keep you updated.  But, for now, the tank is still around and I am trying not to smoke. 

I did get a few new things on Friday (which also added to her frustration).  I will post some pics of those and talk about my VERY cool hitchhikers as well when I get a few minutes.

You are so busted.

I feel your pain though. I tried many times to quit. It's tough.

I did the gum, the patch, the gum, cold turkey, the pills, the gum, etc. I did the gum so many times I started liking the (non)flavor. Kind of peppery.

I finally just said enough is enough and never smoked another again. I smoked for 25 years and I haven't had one in over 5 years.

Good luck,
