Default Re: How can I get my girlfriend to see how badly she needs to quit smoking?

I don't know that there's a middle ground, unless you're the kind that can enforce rules on her, such as no smoking when you are around, not in the house, not in your car, not after sex etc.

I think it's appalling how the government sanctions this harmful product. She is exactly the way our leaders want us, unhealthy and dependent on their drugs.
Ah, Larry's back and with great advice as usual. :) I wondered where you were. But yes, the government likes us sick and addicted. Or the judges do I should say, who repealed graphic images on cig packs to deter smoking. Anyway, when I was 16 a guy who talked out of a hole in his throat due to cancer/smoking spoke at my grade school. That frightened the hell out of me so much I didn't dare go near cigs. There are better vices out there - drumming, women, running, juicing, erotica, our planet .. just my 2 cents. (and thanks AgentOrange ... I did mean well...)
