I just read your sad post.
My heart and prayers go to you and your boyfriend.And you are right. Resuming the smoking addiction won't make this disspappear. So there is no use in smoking.
Big hugs

Hello all,
 
Thanks for all the nice replies, that means a lot to me. How bad the times are right now, I do not give up hope.
 
Deep in my heart I know that we will be together in time and then I can look after my Jimmy and he will feel better than he does now.
 
I am never going to smoke again, not even when the worst will happen.
 
I will sign in here now and then to let you know how things are. Please keep Jimmy in your prayers and thanks again for your nice words.
 
Love: Dutch

Dutchy, have never met you before, but I think that's unimportant. I'm sorry about your boyfriend's illness and the losses you are experiencing. You're right, nothing is so bad that you have to smoke. I lost a quit that was a little longer than the one you have when my sister was murdered twenty years ago. Now look at my quit meter. I have smoked pretty much all of those twenty years. Hang in there. Everything gets better with time, and some effort.

Hi Dutch,
 
I am sorry to hear your news but I am pleased to see that you are as positive as you ever were, which was such a breath of fresh air around here during your time. Remember some of the 'misery' that abounded then? This place is much better now and your attitude,with others, was instumental in bringing that improvement.
 
I do hope things work out for you; you are much deserving.
 
Wishing you both well,
Penitent
