Thirteen Reasons why Guppy should stay not smoking!


1. Because his 7 year old daughter tearfully said last year " Daddy all I want for my birthday is for you to stop smoking."

2. So that he is adding years to his life instead of taking them away.( I kinda like having him around :) )

3. Because I got that same request from little one last year and actually did quit.

4. It's hard being a non smoker married to a smoker at times.

5. He smelled like an ashtray a lot when he was smoking.

6. I can kiss him anytime now without him having to run and brush his teeth first ,which kind of takes " the moment" away.

7. The car smells better now that he has quit.Even though he never smoked with me or lil one in the car .He did smoke quite a bit in the car while alone.

8. We can actualy watch a tv show or a movie without having to take pause breaks for him to run out and smoke.

9. He has more energy now that he hasn't smoked for 5 days.

10. Because he has already gone 5 days and he smells wonderful all the time now... Yeahhhh him and Praise God!

11. Because he promised he would after my surgery was over.

12. Because I know he can do this, with God's help.

13. *drum roll please * ..........because it saves more money for gas...lol :)

  7. So... you think I should stay quit? But it's so hard!

  8. great list!
    I am sure guppy will manage to keep off the ciggies...5 days is good going! Congrats to him!

    A lot of folk around me have given up recently (a public ban introduced march 26th here in the UK) and they are all doing good. It must be hard...I ahve never smoked so I can't appriciate the addiction myself....unless its similar to the chocolate addiction I seem to have. ;-)

    Thanks for visiting my list!
    Happy Thursday!

  9. My FIL quit last year (right when I got sick -- coincidence?) after smoking 2 1/2 packs per day for over 40 years. It can be done.

  11. I am a nonsmoker and my husband smokes. He wants to quit and I want him to quit. Trouble is 24 hours into him quitting the evil side of him takes over and I start throwing pack of cigs at him begging him to smoke..LOL

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes, good lord, those things are too expensive. Tell him for every one he smokes he gets a dollar less for gas. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Stay patient. My husband was a smoker when we married, and he finally quit. I guess its like anything else--you have to be ready.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT. Happy Thursday!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Cool! We'll be praying he stays strong. My dad quit when he came home one day and saw me playing with the butts in the ashtray!

    Kids have a strong influence . . .

    Thanks for stopping by my TT!

  20. WOW Stormi - I am very proud of you for quitting :) how did you do it?

    I want to quit and I have tried. Went to the Doctor on Monday and he prescribed Wellbutrin XR. I have tried the gum and patches. I am praying that this Wellbutrin works.

    My boys keep tellin' me "Mom, we can't be professional baseball players if you are gonna smoke" and truthfully I want to be around!

    Will keep guppy in our prayers.

  21. Without trying to preach, #1 would be enough for me....well that and my terrible asthma.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great reasons for Guppy. hard task tho -

    ReplyDelete
  23. How could he NOT stay quit after THAT list??:)

    He is lucky to have you and lil one..but he already knows that.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great reasons! I know my health has improved BIG time since I stopped. :)


    PS: To answer your questions. I get so many samples becauase I own a yahoo group for samples/freebies. I get lots of stuff in my mail. I haven't gotten to see it yet. It just came in mail and kids get home in 2 hours. :(

    Thanks for stopping by my TT.

  25. That's a great list. I don't smoke, but I have lots of other bad habits, and I know one is as hard as the other when it comes to quitting. My aunt was a smoker. Even just being there a few minutes, I would reek of smoke when I left. She's is a nursing home now (and guess what...no smoking! image that). But going through her stuff that we boxed up ... ukkk... stale cigarette smoke. I wish yor husband all the best. I hope he quits!!

    Thanks for stopping by. I think I'm going to link you permanently (hmmm..thats sounds kinda omiminous,doesn't it?). Like you said ... Christian and Scrapbooking --I think I was in here the other day and thought about linking you, but didn't. But now I'm going to, if you dont' mind:)

  26. Good luck! I know that has too be difficult!

  27. My fiance quit smoking and now he doesn't know how he ever did it! He feels so much better and actually can't stand the smell any more which is YAY for me!!! It's great not having him smoke and it saves SOOOO much money! Good luck to him, it's tough!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I agree with every one of those reasons! I use to smoke and when I quit, it wa wonderful!! Good luck to Guppy!! He can do it!

  35. Yay!!!! He can do it. I know it's so very hard to do! It's hard being married to smoker if you are not one. It's like licking an ashtray when you kiss them. :)
