I am glad that you are giving it another try. Never give up, keep plugging away. You can do this.
I know it's hard, particularly because your husband still smokes. But the greatest gift you can give to your daughter is to quit. Firstly, you will be setting a good example for her. And also, if you quit, she is less likely to take up the habit herself. Kids ultimately tend to do what their parents do. I know that I started smoking because virtually my whole family smoked, and it was easier to live with the smoke in the house if I smoked myself. That led to an addiction to smoking that lasted 43 years. Pretty pathetic, eh? It's a wonder I'm still alive.
I hope you get the support you need to get through this, tsaud. If you speak to your doctor, or even call the helpline here, they may be able to put you in touch with a group you can attend to give you additional support. And of course, we are always here for you as well.
