    I am going to try quitting in 30-35 days (when I run out of cigarettes). I don't want to try and quit before they all gone, because the temptation will be too strong. My husband smokes 2-3 packs a day, and he will NOT quit. And therein lies my problem. I can only hope it will take this time. I've tried numerous times before, but always failed. I only smoke about a 1/2 pack a day, mostly in the mornings and in the evenings, when I usually sit down and read or watch TV. During the day, I manage to stay busy, and keep my hands occupied and smoke maybe only one at lunch time. I also do not smoke in the car (although HE does). Sounds like it should be easy - right? Sorry about that, it's still a struggle. Wish me luck!

    Explain how important this is to you and ask him if he would stop smoking in the house, and in the car. But even if he declines, don't let that deter you. You know where you smoke the most. Try and chance that habit. Good luck.
