The guy I'm dating, smokes a pack per day. Should I tell him that I don't like it? How?

  • I can live with occasional recreational weed, but regular smoking of any sort, no. If I'm looking for a relationship it's gonna be for long-term, and I've already seen loved ones die of smoking-related illness. I won't willingly put myself through that again.

  • I thought it was. Apparently it isn't, if the right person comes along.

    • @update. I've always made it very clear I don't like him smoking. He knows it and tried to quit for me, but it doesn't work like that. Quitting for someone else than themselves never work. He switched to electric cigarettes, though, which is so much better.

      I think you should mention that as well. It's good to get it on the table. But try not to sound demanding, like it's an ultimatum. He will never be able to successfully quit smoking if he is forced into it. Just mention you don't like smoking *because*...

    • You need to explain why you don't like it. Don't mention anything about quitting, just tell him why you don't like him smoking. Most smokers know it's disgusting and that they should stop, so it most likely won't come as a surprise.

  • My kid sister started dating a smoker when she was a teen. She said it was a filthy habit and she would convince him to stop.

    She now smokes.

    Me, smoking is an automatic dealbreaker. She literally might as well be a dude.

  • Absolutely not, I'm fine with it. I don't smoke anymore but I used to, & while I never really smoked more than 3 to 5 in a single day I wouldn't care if someone did if they had everything else I wanted in a partner besides that. I mean, if its someone who i'm iffy on in the first place, it can be the thing that topples their chance with me over. But mostly, no.

  • Break up with him. You can't make him change his mind about smoking except for him. If you don't like smokers, don't date them. Simple. It is most certainly a dealbreaker. And I have respiratory problems at that? And who wants to kiss somebody who basically smokes and smells and probably tastes like 'ash'? No THANK you. I want to live as long as possible thank you. I probably ended up with respiratory problems because of my old living environment.
