I Want To Stop Smoking But I Can't - Female Lawyer
I've been smoking since I was 18, I started it just for the fun of it but then I eventually got addicted. Its so bad, my parents even know and beg me to desist from it but I just can't. I'd much rather smoke than eat. I know of the health hazards (obviously) and presently I'm having serious chest pains and shortness of breathe but I still can't help myself. Also I worry that my smoking must have driven away several prospective suitors/boyfriends because of the light in which it is seen in Nigeria. Please click to continue reading.
Mind you, I'm not wayward or anything; I'd much rather smoke in the confines of a room than out in the open (in fact sometimes I lodge in guest houses all by myself for a day or two just so that I can just chill and smoke). I don't do weed or skunk, just cigarettes. Anyway I don't want to drone on and on but I would really appreciate tips on quitting smoking .
And also I would like to hear from guys, I know there's a double standard, but what do you think about women who smoke? Would u consider a serious relationship/marriage with a lady who smokes, is it a deal breaker? I'm asking because I'm a successful career-driven lady who's well groomed and also very pretty (I'm not being conceited). I'm also quite domesticated and generally a decent person. But I sometimes wonder if smoking is the reason for some failed relationships I've been in.
Ladun please post this, I beg of you. I'm sorry but I would like to remain anonymous. Thanks and God bless you. Have a great week ahead.
