My husband gave up smoking more than 10 years ago. He chose to live a healthy lifestyle than be burdened with sickness caused by smoking. What did my husband do to ride out cigarette and cigar cravings? He turns to sports. He is thankful that he has supportive friends who play the type of sport that he plays. Hubby and his friends would go out every weekend to play golf or lawn tennis. Hubby is also into biking. Apart from personal health, he quit smoking because he was concerned about our first child and our then unborn baby to suffer from second hand smoke. We would not want to raise sickly babies due to our own doing.
