Yesterday I finally asked my fiance how long he had to stand his parent's secondhand smoke when he was a kid, the answer he gave made me feel horrified. It turns out those idiots exposed him to their smoke for 12 years! That's almost the same amount of time he has been smoking himself, so... it's like he as been smoking for 24 years! He is just 33 years old. I felt so sick. I was afraid to ask about this for the same reason, I knew it would be bad, but not sure I knew it would be this bad I am trying not to thin about it, but can't help but to judge his stupid parents harshly whenever I wonder how someone can have so little common sense. At this point I have no idea if he will ever quit, I can't do much though, so I guess the only I can do is simply wait.
