This is the first time I have ever posted in dailystrength (I posted in the wrong section, then realized could start a new topic, so bear with me :-) I am actually not a smoker, but I am trying to understand my partner....Soooooooo.... my question (story first).... when I met my live-in partner (since March) he smoked occasionally. I would never have considered a relationship if he had been a full-fledge smoker (good reason...please bear with me) as he would not have considered me since I was a non-smoker. So, things were ok, until he got back to full-fledge smoking. I have terrible asthma. The cigarettes are aggrivating it something fierce. I have been in emergency at the hospital twice in the last month and am on predisone. Everytime he smokes it aggrivates my asthma. He does smoke outside, but the smell clings onto him. Also our sex life has been affected cause I have asthma attacks and well.... you know what won't happen for me as a result! (can you see me turning red?) and then he can't wait to jump off of me to get his cigarette. I feel like the cigarette is the other woman? He will not consider the patch or taking medication because of the cost. So, is there any chance for us.... does he love cigarettes more than me? Is the addiction that strong? Please help me understand?! Other than this everything else is great for us; we are total soulmates, but I am afraid this will be the breaking point. :-(
