First, I have never nagged my husband about quitting smoking. I respect him enough to do things his way. He has come to me and mentioned several times that he wants to quit smoking.
I am encouraging, but not demanding, and I have no expectations at this point.
When I quit smoking, it was really hard to get over the habit of smoking. Instead, I chose to chew gum. that helped a lot with the cognitive-behavioral aspect.
So I bought him a bunch of gum so that it would be available to him if and when he decided to try to quit. I told him about it, and he does not think it will help.
Do you have any suggestions as far as what to use to kick the habit?
And I am talking about the habit specifically, not the addiction to nicotine. I do not know how he will deal with that part, I am just trying to address the need to have a cig in his hands at all times.
