I smoke, but we ALWAYS smoke outside, no matter what, even if it's 20 below. It was my choice to smoke and get addicted, not my kids so I don't subject them to that. So I agree with you...if he wants to smoke, make him do it outside.
Is he under a lot of stress right now? That may be why he is thinking about smoking again.
FYI, I was in the ER with one of my children one time, I overheard the nurse in the triage room ask another person if anyone in the household smoked. She responded, yes, but only outside. The nurse said that the second hand smoke on the clothing was damaging to the children as well, since they are still breathing in the toxins.
Yep, I agree with you about making him smoke outside. i would too. And Carol is right. I used to smoke after Alyssa was born, and they told me not only to smoke outside, but to wash my hands and change my clothes afterwards, b/c it could make her sick. This stupid routine alone was enough to make me quit, b/c I was tired of changing clothes twenty+ times a day, and my hands were getting seriously chapped fom all that washing, lol. Maybe this would be motivation enough for those of you who are struggling with quitting, or dealing with a hubby who is.
