Being a non smoker but married to a smoker, I found it very hard to deal with.
The 28 years I have been with my husband Rob he has smoked, and to make it worse he either had a beard or mustache and when he smoked and I kissed him I could smell and taste it.
Two years ago after a lot of nagging from me about dying of lung cancer he gave up, he smoked for 47 years.
My two older children don't smoke but my youngest does. He is now trying to give up smoking, he is 26, he said to me Mum, I can feel it in my chest, the coughing, and because he pumps weights he feels as though he can't get enough air into his Lungs.
You have to want to, and with both my husband and son they both want to, they can see the damage it is doing.
