Smoking Spouse

Question asked by SwimmingKate on Jul 9, 2018

Does anyone have any experience in quitting when their spouse is also quitting, but doesn't seem fully aware of how addicted they are to cigarettes and how difficult it is to quit?  I'm on Day 2 of my quit and my spouse is also not smoking, for now...I've quit a few times in the past (most recently when I was training for a 1/2 marathon) and my spouse goes for a few days and then will buy a couple and is outside smoking and I feel like I just don't see her and ultimately I've ended up giving in and starting to smoke again. I really, really, really don't want this to happen again.  Does anyone have any advice or experience in dealing with a situation like this?  I know that everyone's quit is their own and I can't control hers, but just considering triggers etc...I want to be prepared for this.


I'm doing my best to stay busy during the day and to plan things for us to do in the evenings to keep us busy (bike rides, movies, etc...)  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thank you!
