Yikes, good luck and good thoughts to you. I am a grouch and snappish when I try to quite carbs for a week so I can only imagine nicotine withdrawal! Don’t worry, you’ll get through it and this is a great thing for him in the long run.

Luckily, I met Fiance right as he was quitting smoking, so I got the tail-end of it, but I understand what you’re going through – just stick with it and stay strong!! 🙂 You love this man and are going to spend your life with this man…. and you are standing by his side, no matter what!! Keep up the awesome work, I know it’s going to make you BOTH stronger!!

Good luck!  My ex husband and I went through this several times and he was never successful (not to say your’s won’t be).  It was always hard to deal with the mood swings, etc.  Just try to remember what he’s doing – he’s probably doing it for his health and so that hels around longer for the both of you.

Fiance also quit smoking when he moved to Seattle to be with me… so I know what you are talking about!

I’ll send lots of calming thoughts your way!

Good luck! I’m trying to convince my Fiance to try to quit before the wedding, but we’ll see how that goes …

Good luck!!  My dad quit smoking when I was 10 years old and I remember that it really isn’t fun.  On the bright side, he did quit and the grumpiness did subside.  Try to remember that it really is only temporary.  I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel!

I can’t tell you how many fights I had with my Fiance about his smoking.  He tried to quit twice before he finally succeeded.  He was soooo grumpy for the first few days!  He has had a couple of slip-ups since then but he’s done really well.  Try no to take it personally when he’s grumpy, and just think how great it’ll be when you don’t have to kiss Joe Camel and he can actually smell and taste again (not to mention breathe). Good luck to you both.
