I dunno, he is pretty stubborn and i'm still annoyed. I was just feeling like i'm doing this all on my own cos he is supposed to be quitting smoking and he always seems to say 'after this weekend', 'after my friends stag do' etc etc. I know he has cut down but he just doesn't seem to want to do that extra bit, i've even bought him the quit smoking inhalator thing he said he wanted to use. I just feel like its all on me cos i'm the one trying to track ovulation, i'm the one taking vitamins and i'm the one tracking everything. Thats what our fight was about x
Thaaaankkssss Jo Bean!!!! Good job with the new thread. Looks like it is moving faster than the old one! Yay for new faces. Welcome, welcome, welcome. And how is everyone doing today?
StefanieC- I feel you pain and your DH's. I quit smoking a couple years ago and is was so, so, so hard. But I tell ya, I wouldn't have done it without my DH pushing me to. The best thing you can do is not take it personally that he hasn't quit yet. Quitting is so, so hard. And VERY scary (even just thinking about right now gives me the chills, and I've already quit)! The first month was the hardesst thing I've ever done in my life. Just remind him occasionally how much you dislike it and how bad it is for him, but try not to fight or be angry. He has to make the decision for himself- people that quit just because someone tells them to are almost 100% going to end up picking it back up again later. Cutting back is often the first step a smoker makes when they want to quit, and it sounds like he's got that part down. That's a BIG step to some smokers. (I know it was for me.) Maaybe take the time out to tell him how proud you are of him for giving up some of his smokes and offer to help him put together a quitting smoking plan. The best advice I could give him is pick a "Quit Day" far enough out in the future (say a month) that it doesn't seem scary yet and then everyday work on the "Quitting Plan". For me that was getting carrots, lolli's, crosswords, new video games, etc- anything that I could occupy myself with when the urge to smoke happened. It's important to be prepared for all environments, too. When he finally does quit, he'll have built up to it. And people who plan it out have a much, much higher chance of staying quit. And when he does quit (because with you there to support him I know he will!) just remind him that when the nic-fit does hit, must cravings only ast 5 minutes and then go away for however long he usually waits between cigs. Occupying those 5 minutes in ANY way that keeps him from smoking is what you have to focus on. Sorry for the hugs paragraph, but I know how hard this struggle can be. You two can do it!!!
UPDATE: CD33 and STILL no positive OPK. Oh mah gawwwwwd I'm gonna lose my mind! Come on second line! You can doooo iiiiitttt!!!!
