    I am feeling frustrated by a friend of mine my friend said that we are going out for a coffee today so we can get out of the house for a while while but my friend went to help their friend and now I am left alone I don't mind that my friend has other friends and I don't have any I just wish that my friend would say that they will be there to help them a little later I promise another friend to take them out for a coffee

    Hello Kimhickman77,

    Did you recently quit smoking? If so, then yes it can be very frustrating trying to fill the time and can be disappointing when your coffee plans with a friend get cancelled at the last minute.

    Maybe let your friend know how you feel and what you need from them to help you quit smoking.

    Keep us in the loop.

    Renee

My 2 busy months 6 days a week 12 hours Monday to Friday and Saturday 11.5 hours then July drops to 5 days any where from 6 to 12 hours a day then drops again from anywhere 1 to 5 days a week mostly 3 to 4 days and also have to fall back on EI if hours under 40 hours a week. People at work who don't know that I quit smoking will wonder if I came back to work

    Kim,

    It is incredible that you were rolling cigarettes, which would be so tempting) and then ended up giving them away. 

    Hopefully when your friend and his/her daughter quits, you will all be able to enjoy some smoke-free activities together that can keep you busy as it sounds like you have a lot of time on your hands.
