My husband is a truck driver and smokes about a pack a day all week while gone. He comes home for the weekends and tries not to smoke at home. After smoking a pack a day all week, he is home with horrible moodiness and is making life miserable for my kids and me. If he smokes a pack a day all week, isnt he going through nicotine withdrawl every weekend that he is home? We have spent a lot of money on the electric cigarettes but he is back to the regular ones instead. How do we deal with this?
Hello & Welcome...your husband is definitely in w/d every weekend, lucky you! There is nothing that YOU can do, your husband must want this for himself. I can imagine being a truck driver, how hard quitting is for him.
The bottom line here, is your husband has to do the work; Want to quit, and it doesn't sound like he does.
For now, let me suggest a site called whyquit. See if your husband is willing to read the site, it may give him the courage he needs.
