I may never get a date after this reveal!
I smoked since I was 12 yo. I had quit in 2010 and was proud of myself for doing it. But only after 5 years, I took it up again! Why? I was dealing with too much stress in my life from every direction. From family quarrels over my late mother’s estate, to job and boss situations. Oh, should I mention the number of people who were sad to learn I started again?
I got into a relationship with a cis-female who wanted me as I am (transgender). But we had an argument a while back and I told her “by the way, I am a smoker”. I thought she would dump me for sure knowing that, but it did not. She accepted it and said she would help me to quit when I’m ready to do it. On to plan B. It was stressing me out that she was always asking me for monetary help. I needed to distance myself from her or go broke.
I’ve acquired a load of cessation patches for that day when I will quit, and it will be when I’m seriously involved with someone new.
