Staying smoke-free if your spouse, partner, or roommate smokes is definitely possible, but you’ll have to be clear about what you need. Explain how important this is to you, and ask them to do things like:
- not smoke in front of you
- go outside to smoke
- keep cigarettes, lighters, and ashtrays out of your sight
- never offer you a cigarette
Remember that no matter who you share your real home with, QuitNet can be your virtual home! There’s always someone there who understands what you’re going through.
