understand! This has been one of my biggest problems with quitting - or rather, staying quit. Though a huge part of me DOES want it, there is another part of me that feels the same as you. It IS
important to me to get that break - and I haven't quite figured out how I'm gonna get it otherwise! It's also. . . about the ONLY thing that I haven't changed about myself since getting married and having kids. I think I might hold onto it as a kind of weird 'identity' thing. I've smoked since I was a teenager! It's honestly become a part of who I am, if a not-so-great part, but still. . . what it is. And quitting suuuucckkssss!
No, my husband doesn't smoke. And he's heard me pull the 'I'm gonna quit' thing several times now, to no avail, so he has no faith in my quitting abilities, either. You'd think it'd be easier living with a non-smoker, but I doubt it's easy no matter who you've got around, lol!
I hear ya about the 'Chosen Ones.' I've had them everywhere I've ever worked. Never did understand it - in my experience, they're usually fairly lazy, and tend to muck things up frequently enough. Not sure what it takes to attain that status, but I doubt I'll ever have it!
Good luck, man! Things will work themselves out - they always do. God provides ;)
