If you want to quit, you can, and you can get help. If you do not want to quit, you never will
Dr. Steven Machtinger
Internal Medicine - Allergy & Immunology
7 doctors agree
In brief: Quit the smokes
Quit even if you just like her. If you care about anyone, respiratory disease or not, you should quit because second-hand smoke hurts everyone.
The person you'll help the most is you.

The message: "Love God, love your nighbor, love yourself", common to many faiths, but works best backward. You MUST love yourself. Smoking is self-loathing, wallowing in an addiciton making you incapable of loving anything moer than your addictive habit

In brief: Quit
If you care about her, quit.
If you care about yourself, quit. If you care not to end your life suffering, quit. Smoking is dumb, and smokers look ignorant rather than cool. Try breathing air! breathing is one of life's most pleasurable experiences, and smoking deprives smokers of that pleasure in exchange for the cheap thrill of a drug reaction. Stop being an idiot and quit!

In brief: If you love her....
If you really love her, then you will quit for her sake.
You will be putting her at much greater risk for sever lung damage and infections. That's not fair.

It has much more to do with your loving yourself enough to quit.
Dr. Liawaty Ho

3 doctors agree
In brief: Love yourself
You have to love yourself before you can love somebody else.
If you do love yourself - you have to take care of yourself first you do not need any more time to think- quit smoking. Don't ruin your life further!.
