When it Gets Tough

It can be hard when your friend or family member keeps smoking.  Just know that there is only so much you can do.

You may need to give the smoker some space.

Say something like;

“I know that quitting smoking is your decision, not mine.”

“I respect your right to decide when you’re ready.” 

If you can’t help but nag, share your concern at the same time.

You might say:

“I care about you.”

“I want you to have a healthy future.”

“I want the grandchildren to have you here for a long time.” 

Show understanding about slips and relapses.

Praise every effort. Tell him or her:

“Even a short try is a success.”
