  • Just keep yourself extra busy for the first week...Get him little gifts to let him know how proud of him you are. Cater to him, quitting is hard!!!! So HARD!!!

  • Sweety think of the worst, I mean worst PMS you've every had... the WORST..... I've tried to quit smoking and that's the only thing that comes close to explaining the mind-twisting, nerve-wrenching, uncontrollable urge to smoke, when the brain is wanting it's fix.... You won't like this.... but orgasms offer the same dopamine stimulation. otherwise, and I COMPLETELY get why you wouldn't even want to have sex with him...... staying away is the best thing you can do... trust me, this is probably ONE of the reason's he was afraid to quit to begin with.

  • Just give him some space and don't take anything personally. You'll get through it. He's doing a great thing! Be nice to him.

  • It is a hard habit to break. Give him space and really don't take anything he says to heart. He's doing a noble thing for his family. The first week is the worst.

  • I'm am on the opposite end of the spectrum. Don't give him space. Give him sex, all kinds of sex, and lots of it. What is a better stress reliever?
