Re: I can't take it anymore! Wife smokes, I don't. Tips are welcome!
jokes aside, like you, I'm an ex smoker and can truly empathize on both sides of the fence.
I was insensitive smoker despite serious complaints from friends & family, largely because as a smoker you just cant smell the smoke! period. Why was everyone fussing? I didn't get it.
Having quit 10 years ago, I go ballistic with smokers around me, and now realize what an idiot I was, and how offensive the smell can be.
I also realize that it is very hard for a smoker to quit for 'someone else' or for any reason other than having had enough themselves. So if shes not quite there yet , it'll be rough going.
However, the good news is that there is doctor prescribed medication now that helps you ride the nicotine withdrawal cravings and fools your organoleptics into believing that there is enough nicotine in the system and 2 weeks later, hopefully you have a quitter.
But she's going to have to really want to do it. No amount of threats or blackmail will work IMO.
Good luck, bud.
