This isn't completely terrible or bad for the relationship but are there any couples out there where one spouse smokes and the other wishes he or she wouldn't.
My husband is a smoker probably close to 2 packs every other day. I use to smoke but quit when our first baby was conceived.
My husband smokes in our basement which doesn't bother me you can't smell it in the house part thankfully enough.
I would just rather he quit but when I do bring it up he gets FURIOUS about it and tells me to mind my business or live with it--theres no way he'll quit.
The sad part is his mother died last year and she was a smoker up until the day she passed. For the first 3 years that I knew her she had a really horrible hacking cough
You'd think my husband would see whats happened and he'd want to get healthy...no such luck.
He doesn't have any signs of his health getting bad--hes smoked since he was 17 hes 36 now. I've known people younger then him who are smokers that have really nasty coughs from it
Thankfully he doesnt.
Does anyone have any advice on how to help him or coax him to quit. Surely I have SOME say in this addiction (money, the kids NEED him and should have him around for as long as possible, he misses out on time with the kids and me when hes down in the basement smoking and surfing...)
