    I got to admit first grill out this spring I couldn't find a dang nabbit lighter to light the grill. I couldn't believe I smoked for 30 years and had lighters always on top of the fridge. (I always grill once in the snow - it isn't always great but I love grilling in the snow) My wife said you threw them all away in January. grrrrrrr.

    If the kiss test fails, tell him to go lick an ashtray.

    Just pat him on his head and tell him not to worry his little head about it. Then go on with your lives.

    You also might mention that, if his negative attitude hasn't already driven you back to smoking, nothing will.

    Sorry, feeling a little sarcastic today. Gotta go to work now.

    Now I must admit that he has seen me attempt to quit many times and I even had a exspensive failure with a white cloud cig-a-like a couple years ago. What suggestions would you have for me to convince him this has worked...I have never made it more than a week before. I would think that almost 2 months would be proof enough.
    Good for you..seriously. And don't be ashamed to spend what you can up front even it is more than what cigarettes cost for the same period of time.
    I hate when people try and compare down to the last nickel and dime when making this switch.

    What some people aren't calculating are future healthcare and medical bills related to slow analog sickness and death.

    Woo-hooo! Congratulations on quitting! Who needs a husband when you got us? Ah, right, he has control of the credit card. Next time he gives it to you copy the number, expiration date and three digit code. I'm wondering though if he isn't just acting out his personal fears that you might go back to cigarettes. My husband is supportive but my family acts, politely, like I've switched to puffing illegal stuff. I've explained it, told them my doctor approves and now it is simply up to them to come to terms with it. At least they have my best interest at heart and don't nag. Keep up the great work and I'm sure he will come around eventually.

    I do know where you are coming from. I failed at quitting everytime too You just keep doing what you're doing and he WILL notice eventually. Maybe once a month let him know how much you've saved to date That will be sure to get his attention Enjoy the spreadsheeet!

    I've tried educating my husband but when I'm vaping he's always questioning me on the health aspect, is it going to hurt the birds in the house blah blah blah......this is for me. I am achieving a great accomplishment for me! Keep doing what you're doing and congratulations!

    Funny, he never ever griped about my smoking and he's a non smoker! I can't stand the smell anymore.....thank you God!
