• Share this with him: Benefits of Quitting Suppose you are a long-term smoker. What happens when you quit? Within 20 minutes of your last cigarette, your blood pressure will drop to normal. After a week your body will be free of nicotine. After one month your coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue, and shortness of breath will begin to decrease. After five years your risk of dying from lung cancer will have dropped by 50
  • People have to want to quit smoking or it will never stick. What ways can you motivate him to want to quit?
  • Give him a choice. Cigarettes or me.
  • Chain him to the radiator in your basement.
  • Tell him when he has the urge to light up to then take 10 REALLY deep slow breaths in a row. Slow on the exhale. I bet he won't be able to do 4 before he is coughing his guts out. He will never smoke again.
