Does your husband smoke and you dont?

Last year my husband and I decided to stop smoking together and up until now he has been bumming smokes off of people at work! Then yesterday he texts me "I got a pack" I was like pack of what? and he told me he got smokes! I was dissapointed because we quit together and I just think it smells awful on clothing!!!

  • Yes me and my DH stoped smoking together in 1995 I think. I have not smoked sense. But my DH started smoking again behind my back for who knows how many years. Tell I found a pack in his car. I told him he will not smoke in the house.

  • I understand what you mean but I feel like he was trying to somewhat hide it from me I wish he would have talked to me about what he wanted to do and then go from there!

  • Df does smoke and I dont. He's always smoked and I've never smoked. I just get use to it because I love him and smoking is his choice not mine

  • I've never really smoked and my SO does. I don't mind the smoke really because I grew up with 2 smokers.

  • I've never smoked, but DH has smoked since who knows how long .. And he still does. I HATE the smell of it on clothing and on his breath, but he won't quit. He used to tell me "I'm cutting back" .. which I know was BS .. Now he doesn't even lie to me anymore he just smokes.

  • I smoke and my SO doesn't...I try to be considerate, chewing lots of gum, and brushing my teeth alot... I quit while I was pregnant with my son, and it was very easy to do then, but I tried to quit again recently, and it was very difficult, I think I might give it a try again soon

  • My husband smokes and I quit 6 months after I started at 14. He smokes in the bathroom and if we have 5 bucks and need milk and he needs smokes he gets smokes and we get kool aide. I get very resentful about the habit, why does anybody need a pack a day? I tell him to make a pack last 2 days because there is not another dime in this house but he cannot do it. It is so frustrating, I just feel like there are so many people who can quit why can't he
