Marriage is not always easy at the best of times. Throw into that the holidays, and you can have a potential land mine on your hands; which is why one woman is upset that Boxing Day was the time her husband chose to do something which would impact on the entire family – suffer withdrawals by making the decision to quit smoking.
In a post on parenting forum, Mumsnet, called ‘am I being unreasonable to be really annoyed DH decided to give up smoking on Boxing Day‘, the woman explained her challenging situation.
Under the username Churchmouse84, she wrote, “He’s been vile. I was so looking forward to a relaxing few days off work to lounge about but it’s been impossible.
“He’s snappy, restless and just generally vile. It would be fine if he just took himself off but I feel he wants us all to suffer with him. He’s currently not speaking to me for reasons I have no idea about.
“And if I object to his horrid behaviour then I’m being unsupportive and it will be my fault if he starts again.”
Frustrated by her husband’s choice to quit during the holidays, without discussing it with her, the woman called his move “selfish and d*ckish”.
“I’m furious he decided to start smoking again after 10 years. Furious about the £1000 he’s literally set fire to this year when we couldn’t afford a holiday. And furious that he’s chosen my only time off in the past 6 months to give up.”
