I must quit smoking. I really must. My husband has severely high blood pressure. The doctor told him he has to quit smoking and drop some weight. He was taking blood pressure meds but won’t see doctor for refill because he doesn’t want to go back until he has quit smoking. Coupled with his weight which he won’t exercise or eat healthy until he quits smoking. I don’t know why he pins so much of his unhealthy habits to smoking alone, but who am I to judge. All I know right now is that he is going to die and I am going to lose my best friend if I can’t convince him to go back to the doctor and get blood pressure refill. OK I am aware that smoking also isn’t gonna help him live longer either.
The delima is that he desperately needs me to quit too so he has strength. This is such a fair request. He supports me every day, no matter what time of day, he stops everything if I need him. Through all I have put him through he has been a champion for me. And I need to quit smoking for him.
Our first day was yesterday and I sabotaged him last night. An hour ago he went to the store and I snuck one.
I am selfish by nature and I DON’T want to quit.
So I pray today, let me find strength to be the friend and support he needs. Let me put down this bad addiction so I can help him save his life.
