  • When he starts acting like that just walk away, and remember it's the nicotine not him.... as with any addiction there is going to be withdrawls and they can't really be avoided... has he tried the gum or patch or is he just doing it cold turkey?

  • If he is doing cold turkey, yes he will definitely be a grump for a while. But at least it will only be temporary, once the cravings settle down.

  • just breathe it out. Its temporary. Did he deal with you being hormonal while you were pregnant?
