I am sorry to have to say this, but, you have to love yourself more than you love him. If he doesn't love you enough to atleast smoke outside, then you should not put up with that! He is killing you with that smoke! I quit smoking after over 20 years of smoking over a pack a day. I always smoked outside..away from everyone..but I do know how hard it is to quit-thats for sure! It was BY FAR the most uncomfortable thing that I have ever done in my life. BUT.. my hubby still smokes.. He never smokes around me..and he never even smells like smoke because he takes great care to rid the smoke smell from his body before he goes near me. The only place that I ever smell it is on his breath occasionally. If he ever lit a cigg near me I would probably divorce him though because my life is much more precious than his need to smoke. I really hope that your partner sees how horrible that he is for making you breathe his smoke!
