dadstimeon Posted August 21, 2005 Share Posted August 21, 2005 Dixie, One knows what one can/can't do or what one should/shouldn't do. We can go on and on about smoking as well as drugs, 000, drinking, eating etc. We are all human, we all have faults, we all struggle and deal with different aspects of our lives differently and try to do the best. For whatever reason your family member still smokes, he has to deal with it, in his own way, the best way he knows how. Really up to him. Regardless it is his decision and should be respected. If I were you I would sit down and bring my concerns to him in a polite, positive, constructive way. Tell him how you feel and why. Ask him what can you do to help him quit, tell him this is what I did, if that is what he really wants to do???? If I have learned one thing about lung cancer it's not to paint it with a broad brush. It's not a one glove fits all. And unfortunately there is not always a magic bullet or easy solution. Hopes this helps. Prayers for the best.
