Amen to that Gemi and that's why I'm reading all of these posts to help me be strong.
I started smoking when I was 13 yrs. old - became a pack a day at age 19 and smoked til 11/19/03 - I'm now 33. So basically 15 yrs. smoking.
I quit cold turkey but some days it's really rough. Even though I'm 22 days smoke free - I still do not feel like I'm out of the woods by any means.
I do come out here though -the smoking cessation room as well - there are 4 of us out there strong that keep each other going. These threads are a really great support system. People don't realize how addictive cigarettes are.
Well any advice is always appreciated. Oh and LTHarps - have your Dad come out here and read these. If you don't think he will - print them out and put them in his car or lunch box or some place where he'll have time to read them and be alone for awhile. Eventually I really think it'll sink in.
My prayers are with you on getting him to quit
