I smoke when I drink, and whenever I drink wine at home, I tell dh I want candy or more wine or whatever..and he will go to the gas station, while he's there , I will grab a cigarette and smoke one like there's no tomorrow! Haha stupid I know. Sometimes I will go years without one, then I'll have one once a week. Lol lately it been about 2x a day every 3-4 days.
I just don't want to deal with his questioning. Have you ever hid anything like this from your man?

No, especially when cigarette smoking is hard to hide. I also smoke while drinking, though I no longer smoke at any other time. DH always knows when I've had a cig because the scent clings to everything (clothing, skin and hair). My aunt used to hide it from her boyfriend, for a very long time she thought she was hiding it well but her boyfriend admitted he always knew because she smelled like smoke. The only time he said he couldn't smell it was when she took a shower and changed her clothes right after she smoked one.

Lmao!! He knows. My dad hides his smoking from my mom and all 4 of us kids. He honestly thinks we have no idea. We all know. It's impossible not to. My husband will smoke when he drinks and he thinks I'm clueless. You have to be stupid and have no sense of smell to not know.

How can he not smell it? Cigs linger like a mother fucker. Do you not kiss, like ever?

My mom hid it from my dad. Everyone was supposed to quit in the house, my dad was the only one who did. We'd sit on the stairway to upstairs, act like we were just having casual conversation, and smoked. It took my dad 3 years to find out about it.

I scrub my hands and nails like a crazy person with a nail brush while hand washing. Also I brush my teeth. No we never are intimate anymore.

No, when I was married, I didn't hide anything like that from him. I am an adult and refuse to sneak around like a teenager. He wasn't crazy about the fact that I smoked mj sometimes, but I refused to sneak around. As a matter of fact, one year for our anniverary he took me to a head shop and bought me several one hitters, a grinder, a bong, a Cherry 7-Up stash can and a set of scales made from hemp. He was so excited when he found  out that you can buy the parts to design and build your own one hitter, lol.

I hide my fanfics. I feel like it's something that only high school kids do. I don't want him to know I still write it. It has gotten a lot better! I just want to create my own story.

I will be honest, there have been times since I quit where I've wanted a smoke bad enough to consider hiding it from Dh, but it's not worth breaking his trust. He would probably smell it anyway and I would be devastated if he felt like he couldn't trust me. I did cheat (cigarettes, not another person) a couple times while I was visiting my family and I told Dh about it even though I knew he would be mad.

Your last sentence makes me sad.

No.  If I am adult enough to be legally married and legally get whatever it is that he doesn't like, then I am grown enough to do it in front of him and not hide it.
