The thread has run its course. Many do, the good part being the influence the information has in maybe helping someone make a wise decision as opposed to a bad one. Obviously the bad here is the OPs wife continuing to smoke, despite being young and already showing health issues.

Many posters have helped numerous people and thier posts will continue to do so. Good stuff.

The thing is lately, probably the past 4 months she has really been hacking and coughing a lot, in the middle of the night, when she wakes up and even at work. She will even spit up mucus and phlegm. We have a one year old daughter as well that I am worried about. She smokes about 1-2 packs a day and I am really concerned. Being a former smoker myself I do realize how very difficult it can be to quit but at this rate I am worried she won't live to see our daughter graduate High School or at least college.

I try to be understanding about and don't want to be hypocritical but I am concerned with her long term health. I have tried talking to her about it but she says she will quit when she's ready. Admittedly I have said the same but I did manage to quit.
This is why I refuse to even date a smoker. Not going to deal with any of it. That being ready excuse is bull****. When are people going to be ready? When they're on oxygen? Maybe you need to give an ultimatum.
