On coughing too much to smoke

I don’t smoke (and never have) but DB does. Or at least used to.

He hasn’t smoked AT ALL since Friday.

DB is so ill atm that he can hardly breathe, never mind talk; smoking is unthinkable.

Much as I want him to get well as soon as possible, it would be soooo good if he stayed ill long enough to get through the cold-turkey of giving up the cigarettes, before getting better, on the grounds that he’s not feeling good anyway, and probably/maybe couldn’t be much worse…..

What are the chances?

  1. Sorry to learn of your boyfriend’s ill health. I hope he recovers soon and gets back to normal. Depending on how long he has been a smoker….don’t get too excited for that part of him to be over with after he recovers. It may be easier for him to quit since he is still quite young….relative to me and my age that is. Good luck to the both of you!

    1. Thank you 🙂 I’ll pass on your good wishes 🙂

      It doesn’t matter too much if it doesn’t work, I mean, he’s smoked as long as I’ve known him (and only a few years less than I’ve been alive), I just think it’s a good opportunity to try 😉

  2. I’m sure I read somewhere that after 3 days all the physical withdrawal is done from cigarettes, it’s just the psychological cravings that last after that. That said it’s pretty unlikely to motivate people to make changes they don’t want to make.
