A friendship between me and a guy has recently become romantic. It started when he asked me out on an official date; which ended up being a netflix all-nighter. We've known each other all four years of highschool, meet up every morning to run, and share the same group of friends. He is really fun to be around, but I found out about a month ago that he smokes. Smoking is a big deal to me. My dad smokes and I can see the negative effects it has on his health. The guy knows smoking bothers me and has addmitted to me that he is disappointed in himself for smoking. He must not smoke much since I just recently found out about it after knowing him for so long, and he oddly doesn't smell like smoke. Reguardless, I don't know whether to continue this relationship or get out before its too late and damages our friendship further. Thoughts?

I used to consider it a deal breaker.. then I dated a girl who smoked, and initially it wasn't a problem... but the longer we were together the more cassual she got about smoking in my pressence and the more it bothered me. The constant smell drove me up the wall (seriously my cloths smelt of it more than hers for some reason). When we broke up (unrelated reasons) I was slightly glad I wouldn't have to deal with the fag fumes anymore.
Now it's back on the deal breaker list and underscored.0
