So, my husband has quit chewing tobacco for the new year. Hooray! I want him to live a life with a lower risk of cancer. And, it is a little extra money in our pocket. But, man he is being insufferable today. Day 1 he was a downer and day 2 he was a drag. Yesterday he went on a rant about the trash can and then went in the garage to work on my car. Then when I was kicking back in my pjs at 7 pm (as a person who is enjoying the last two days of winter break will do) he goes on another rant about how 7pm is too early to be in my pjs and how we never do anything. I ask him what he would like to do, he has no idea and then falls asleep at 8 pm. By the way, I fell asleep around midnight and he woke up around 3 am and was turning on lights and playing the tv. WTF, bro?!? I told him I fell asleep at midnight, so I was tired. He had "other ideas" and after some fun times (which I hoped would improve his mood), he fell back asleep and snored so loud that I stayed awake. Also, the cat slept next to my head and started snoring. I can't catch a break!
So, today I start watching that little "behind the scenes" thing abut that new show Empire, which looks interesting. He was interested in it too (before he turned into an insufferable wet blanket) and went full on hater on the show. SO annoying. I want to be supportive, so mainly I just try to go along with his crappy moods right now. I know kicking tobacco is rough so I'm giving him a pass but I do not know how much more of this I can take. Anyone had experience with quitting tobacco? How much of this can I expect? The last time I dealt with this was when my dad quit smoking and I was 5. I don't remember how long it went on.
