my current bf is a smoker. he avoided this nasty, vile, life shortening habit all during his teens, twenties, thirites and early forties!
he started smoking in his early 40's!!! he said the pressure of returing to night school to earn his RN degree, and the constant smoking of all his EMS co-workers drove him to do so.
it blows my mind that an otherwise intelligent, sensitive, articulate man such as he is did this.
he was a smoker when i met him; so i grit my teeth and endure it.
to a cetain degree.
he does NOT smoke in his or my house, his or my car. he knows to go douche out his mouth with a strong smoker's mouthwashe before he even trys to kiss me.
he sez if i loose the 40 pounds i have accumulated in the last 5 years he will quit smoking cold turkey.
i dunno.......he seems to enjoy the vice all too much to quit.
i'm down 20 pounds since me made the pact...i can see the panic in his eyes when i tease him about it...
