Can You Quit Smoking When Your Spouse Smokes?

My husband smokes too and is rather uninterested in quitting. He thinks that there is no way for us to quit at the same time because it would cause us both to be in horrible moods. He wants me to go first. Gee, thanks!

He claims that once I have quit for several months, then he will quit too. There really is no point in trying to convince him to quit with me sooner rather than later. No one can successfully quit smoking unless they actually want to quit.

The fact that he smokes too has led to my undoing in previous quit attempts. I can't blame him as I must take full responsibility for myself. However, it certainly made the situation much more difficult. Here are some reasons why:

  • I could smell cigarettes on him and it made me crave them
  • It started to make me mad. If he CAN smoke, why CAN'T I??? Why does he get a reward and I am being deprived? (that is the way a brain enduring withdrawal starts to think).
  • I knew his pack of cigarettes were somewhere! He tried to hide them but it drove me nuts knowing they were somewhere very close by.
  • After dinner was the worst. He would go outside to smoke after dinner and I couldn't join him. Jerk!
  • Back to the fact that I knew his cigarettes were somewhere. I was able to resist the urge to hop in my truck and go to the closest gas station to buy a pack. BUT, I knew they were somewhere in my house...... AH HA, I found them!!! Puff...... puff.....

How about you? Have you ever successfully quit or at least tried to quit and have a spouse that still smoked? Any helpful tips that you can share with us?

In the past it has been hard for me to quit smoking when I am always around other people that smoke.

I to have heard "I will quit after you quit" before...

I have tried throwing out lighters, matches and anything else you can light you cigarette with. That works for a while but, then I wind up lighting up on the stove...the _one_ thing that you can't throw out.

Maybe if we, here in the group quit, other's will follow?

Kelly said...

That could very well be the case Mandy. Dreagen is quitting on Monday. I am considering Monday too. Do you have a date in mind for yourself??

Mandy said...

I think that my date will be Monday, too. I ordered my Auricular Biomagnets and they should be here either tomorrow or Monday?

Kelly said...

Yikes! I forgot to order my Biomagnets.... I might have to wait. Not an excuse exactly but I want to be as prepared as possible!

Mandy said...

I just checked the tracking info on my Biomagnets and USPS doesn't show anything. They were sent "first class" mail so who knows when they will get here? The person that I bought them from on eBay does offer a Priority Mail option for $4.00 (around that). If anyone would like the eBay buyer information, let me know and I will post it. Then after I receive them I will post a review as well.

I quit for 3 months several years ago, and at that time, my husband at 50, who never smoked, got bored grabbed one, and started.. Wth is that all about? I am having a really hard time now, since he thinks thats our socialization time!

Kelly said...

Wow Sue, that is unusual for someone to start smoking at that age. Is he interested in quitting at all???

Addiction is a term that is more often than not meant in the negative sense. Getting addicted to anything, even if it is something that is ideally good is not advisable. The word addiction usually makes us remember of all the unhealthy things like smoking, drinking, drugs etc. Among them smoking is undoubtedly the most widespread addiction. Interestingly for most of the smokers who are keen on quitting, a staunch will power is what they actually need as opposed to the modern concepts like chantix. For all those who are unaware of the term, chantix is a drug that assists in quit smoking. However, if you do not have the will power and the mental strength, no quit smoking drug can help you.

I have been smoking for thirty-six years. It will kill me. I've quit three times in my life. The first was decades ago. The last two times were about ten years ago. Both times I quit while on vacation with non-smokers, but took up the habit again after about three months of having returned home to my smoking husband. A chain smoker.

We live in a 750 square foot house. I have approached him for about six months to begin smoking outside. He refuses. I really believe that I cannot quit living in a house that another person smokes in. I don't know what the answer is.

In order to start off your smoking cessation regimen with chantix, the Pfizer manufactured quit smoking drug, you need to buy chantix from authentic chantix drug stores.

After being in relationship with my boyfriend for six years,he broke up with me,I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. Contact him now for your relationship or marriage problems via this email ofuaspiritualtemple@gmail.com

After six years in marriage with my husband with 3 kids, he suddenly started going out with other women and coming home late, each time i confronted him it turns out to be a fight and he always threatened to divorce me at all time, my marriage was gradually coming to an end. i tried all i could to stop him from this unruly attitude but all proved abortive, until i saw a post in the forum about a spell caster who helps people cast spell on marriage and relationship problems, at first i doubted it but decided to give it a try, when i contacted this Spell caster Dr. Dangogo via email, he helped me cast a spell and within 4 hours my husband came back apologizing for all he has done and promised never to do such again and today we are happily together again. Contact this Great spell caster for your marriage or relationship issues via this email; dr.dangogospell@gmail.com

My name is Camille bruno Valdez my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; ojemiritemple@gmail.com, for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr okoye, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: Ojemiritemple@gmail.com.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back, and ifyou wish to see your future. he has powers to do it, he has done mine
