Hi, my name is lovely

and I smoke. I am a secret smoker. I only smoke at work and hide outside at home. My kids think I stopped when I became pregnant with my third child. The truth is, I started back when the youngest was 6 weeks. I had returned to work and gave in.

I found guilt to be the worst part of smoking; it made me smoke more.
Maybe start thinking more in terms of gaining self-esteem when you quit?

Click here to enlarge about the guilt. I always smoked more and more as I would feel more guilt.

I think the worst times were when I would decide to quit and didn't/couldn't. I would beat myself up over it and then smoke more.

What's keeping me going the most is the money we'll be saving. It's not a small chunk of change. Dh was going through about 3 cans of chew per day. I'm already looking for other things to spend it on. Click here to enlarge

chew is so much worse than smoking.

Anyway, I used to do that, walk to the dog and smoke.

Fuck the typos
