How does one stop smoking when the person living with them will not stop?

Posted by Patrece

It is so hard to stay quit when he smells of cigarettes, offers them to me, etc... I NEED to quit, but how with him smoking?

He does keep it to outdoors or the garage, but i still smell it all over him, he offers them, and I know they are within reach... So frustrating..

Start your stop smoking plan with START

S = Set a quit date.

T = Tell family, friends, and co-workers that you plan to quit.

A = Anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting.

R = Remove cigarettes and other tobacco products from your home, car, and work.

T = Talk to your doctor about getting help to quit.

Sit down and have a chat with him on the subject,he just might understand your plight.But if he does not try and understand your wish that you want to give up smoking,then I think you either take him to a rehab center where he might get some help in kicking his habit,or at least try to understand you.I just donot know how to help you but I sincerely wish you are able to find a way out.
