From the other side.

DH has smoked since he was 16. He's now 28. He smoked a pack a day. He tried quitting on NY's but quickly lost it when he went back to work the next day because his work truck broke down, and he was stressedClick here to enlarge He's still trying, but not cold turkey. You know what though? That's fine. I'm overweight, and I view being overweight much like I do smoking. It's an addiction. Just like I love McDonaldsClick here to enlarge DH likes smoking. Neither of us are going to die w/o it, but we will live much longer w/o itClick here to enlarge
I love my DH very much, and I am willing to put up with the moodiness for now if I can have him for an extra year. You read that right. I would rather put up with a few weeks of moodiness if I could at the very least have another year left with him. I know that everyone that has posted so far is a woman so the majority of you have a man that is having to deal with your moodiness, but I think it's safe for me to say that your DH's or SO's feel the same way I do. We love you and we want you around for us and for your children. I support my DH in this and I support each of you in doing this. I will not judge you for smoking if you won't judge me for being a baby belugaClick here to enlarge

Good luck to everyone, you can do it, if the time is right!

Meli, please stay with us. Maybe by seeing what we go through while trying to quit will help you to be able to support your DH even more! He's very fortunate to have you behind him! Click here to enlarge

You're a great wife! Think maybe you could get him to read in this forum some? It might help
