Default Re: I can't take it anymore! Wife smokes, I don't. Tips are welcome!

As a very recent ex smoker I found that one way of reducing the amount of grief to nonsmoker parters was to do a massive exhale after a cigarette - voiding your lungs totally. Then rinsing your mouth out with water or drink some juice.

The smell is still there but less pronounced. When you smoke a small amount is always stuck in the bottom of your lungs and that is a big part of the smell IMO

Agree with Abe, no amount of hassling can get a smoker to quit (and in my case it made me less inclined to quit) ... you have to be ready to quit within yourself.
