I understand that smoking isn't good for you. And I understand that non smokers really hate the smell of cigarettes. I don't blame them one bit. When I met my boyfriend, he didn't really smoke. He used to but had quit. I liked that about him. I smoke. He became a full time smoker again then recently "quit". He quit buying them but he takes one from me in the mornings and has a few in the evenings. Twice we have had the conversation about me quitting. I said I would when I got pregnant, but until then I don't really want to. Id like to cut back, but not quit. He is absolutely disgusted that I don't want to quit. The looks he gives me are looks as if I said I don't want to quit killing baby animals...you know? I love baby animals by the way. Anyways, each time he has been smoking a cigarette during these conversations. How do you feel about it?

"I understand that non smokers really hate the smell of cigarettes."
I'm a non-smoker and I love the smell of both the tobacco itself and the smoke. I much prefer the smell of tobacco smoke over smells like perfume. Perfume makes me sick. However old stale smoke on clothes can get pretty rank. I think smokers just need to be extra careful about washing clothes, especially things like jackets and coats that normally don't get washed often.
Anyway, yea it can be a problem with one smoker and one non-smoker. If he's trying to quit having another smoker around can make it that much more difficult. It's just something that two people need to be compatible about.
Just because you smoked when he met you doesn't mean much. People are allowed to change, especially when it's a change for the better.
It's pretty rare for someone to be a part time smoker and keep it up. I've only known one person who smoked part time and kept it up for several years without becoming a full time smoker.
I wouldn't like it if my SO smoked but it wouldn't be a deal breaker. However smoking inside would not be acceptable. She'd have to go outside to do it.0
