Not smoking in the house update

Well, we're not smoking in the house as much anyways. We still have one or two in our bedroom in the morning and at night, we don't smoke anywhere else and now our guests have to go outside.
So, we've cut back quite a bit, which is good. Today, the withdrawals are setting in, kind of. I'm just so used to a smoke while I'm online, making dinner, etc. I guess I'm got too used to having something in my mouth, I've been munching non stop.
The whole house is smelling better, except our room, it's gotten stinkier :( Oh, I went to do laundry yesterday, some buffoon just had a smoke in there! I wasn't pleased, because it made me want to smoke, and my clothes came out smelling worse than my house. The laundry room is really tiny and no ventilation, unless you flip the switch that vents the dryer, not the room. I'm sure you can imagine how unhappy I was.
DH, trying to be nice, has spent the entire day counting how many cigarettes we haven't had, and how easy it will be to quit soon. Did I mention the withdrawals yet? I've cut back almost a pack a day, I wasn't feeling his joy and kind of yelled at him. I'm lucky a hug and kiss made it all better for him, LOL.

That's great that you have cut back on your smoking. Just think of the money you will save when both of you quit.

We're not using any stop smoking aids - yet. Today has went alot better though and I haven't munched nearly as much.
So funny, right before bed, DH had to bring up how much less we've smoked, for the zillionth time. I told him that's all he's talked about and it's not helping any. Guess he needs to talk about cigarettes since he's not smoking as many, LOL.
Thanks to both of you for your positive vibes :)
