I was a single parent from the time my two girls were 4 and 6 - and worked full-time most of the time they were growing up. Looking back, I have NO idea how I did it - and I only had two!
You deserve a pat on the back and a hearty CONGRATULATIONS on getting through each day! Quitting smoking will, in fact, give you MORE time, and extra $$$ in your pocket - not to mention being around for them a lot longer!
Hang in there!!!
Hi and Welcome to Ex’s...Hallphresh2019
Congratulations on 2 months of Freedom from smoke...You are welcome to post blogs and we will give you so much support...We are a very strong and caring group...~ Colleen 260 DOF
Welcome Jamar, I am sorry that you are having a hard time. Is it that you are having a hard time with your quit or a hard time being a single parent?. Probably both, right. You have come to a community that can offer support to quit smoking. Congrats on 60 whole days of freedom. I am not sure if you are going to get some phone calls from anyone just yet, maybe later on once we get to know you. I would be cautious about putting my phone number out there like that unless private message someone. We are a close-knit community so hang around someone may give you a call. Quitting is the easy part. As you already know staying quit is work. Learning to protect your quit will keep you on your journey of forever freedom. One day at a time. Never give up, never give in. Hang tough Stay Close.and the journey continues.
Thank you for your response and support. I'm having a hard time being a
single parenti can't feed my kids right niw

You have gotten some good advice already, I really think that if you go to the little pencil near your avatar and click on it and then select Blog Post, Share your thoughts. Write what you are going through and how you feel that we can help you. I agree with JACKIE1-25-15 that I would be cautious about posting my phone number on the site. It is better done in a direct message, you can click on a person's avatar and send them a message with your phone number. There are lots of amazing people here, this is a one day at a time journey. We will help you all that we can. Congratulations on two months quit, that is awesome.
I am hoping that Youngatheart.7.4.12 will be here shortly to post her welcome.
Welcome to EX,
First, you might edit your blog (bottom right - Actions - Edit) to not include your phone number for the whole site to see. You never know who might be lurking. You might, instead, ask anyone who would be interested in a phone conversation to private message you (they will click on your username and a menu with appear that will have an option to send you a message).
While I know that you think your quit journey should be over and you should be DONE with it - I'm afraid that is not the case. You are traveling through the part of your journey where folks here noticed a lot of people were losing their quit. They decided to shine a light on it by giving it a name - No Mans Land. Here is some information on it: No Mans Land Days 30 to 130 (approximate).
I hope you will take heart in knowing that what you are experiencing is perfectly normal in a quit - and it will NOT last forever. It is but a phase!
It will get EASIER and you WILL be done with it - just hang in there!
All of us with successful quits survived this - although I don't think many of us did it being a single Dad to three kids! It is the absolute BEST thing you can do for them - and the extra $$$$ in your pocket will also be a good thing.
Hang in there a bit longer. Yell when you need support. We will give you a helping hand!
Thanks everyone. It's hard my children laying here crying cause the hungry. I lost my job.its rough I had 4 dollars in my cash app and went n got then both a burger... its hard.. Thanks everyone
I'm yelling I need hep
Have you been in touch with Social Services? They should be able to help you get emergency assistance.
Jamar- I removed your phone number for privacy reasons. I hope you get connected with your local county department. Perhaps if you give your state, county and City(if comfortable) at least maybe some people here can do some information gathering for you to search for resources that might aid you in getting assistance. We don't permit any solicitation of any kind here but it's great when people can help with information gathering.
