Today my husband came in from smoking a cigarette. We have never smoked in our apartment since it's against the building policy, and I don't like nicotine getting all over our things, easier to keep it clean. Anyways, he came in from smoking, walked past me, and I was like "whew, that smells bad, glad I don't smell like that anymore". He stopped for a minute and tried to make an excuse, but before he could I said to him "I guess it's time for you to stop smoking too." He struggles with anxiety, and I know that sent him into a whirlwind of thoughts, but I think it might have planted the seed I needed to get him to quit too. He's been super impressed that I just stopped smoking, and told me he's proud of me. I keep putting little hints to him like "well you can be a success story too". I'll wear him down eventually. I think it's a great idea for him to stop smoking too. He smokes a little more than I used to in a day, so I just have to get him to come over to the quit side. I am worried that it might strain our relationship a little bit though. Anyone been in this situation? I'm sure there are plenty of people in this situation. Have any of you been successful at getting your spouse to quit?
