Lost the love of my life anyone else feel the same???

thanks soooooo much for your replys, i really appreciate it. Helps so much knowing that other people are going through the same as me. (or have gone through)
My boyfriend is after quitting with me so hopefully we will be able to survive it cause we are already having rows over silly little things - we laugh about it 10 mins later but its hard.
 
Re the Alan Carr book, i have read it and found it no use whatsoever. Im sure it does work for some people but its just not for me. Im a stubborn person and im not gonna let this get the better of me. hope this stubborness keeps up though cause i can't wait to say the words to my friends at the weekend - im a non smoker (for 5 days at that stage but still a bit jump for me)
 
Can I ask ye a question, how do i get my quit meter up so my progress can be seen and also how do i put up a pic like ye have up?
 
Thanks so much again for all yer responses - makes me feel good to be a non smoker.
