Guest FiremansWife96 Posted May 14, 2006 Share Posted May 14, 2006 Hi all, I'm new, my intro is in that section...My dad was diagnosed w/non small cell (large cell carcinoma) in April 2006. He smoked since his teens, but hasn't smoked since the diagnosis. Here's my issue - my husband, who is almost 39, has also been a smoker since his teens (I am not a smoker). My dad's diagnosis finally got him to quit. And while I am thrilled about this, HE feels like I'm not supporting him enough. I have told him I am thrilled - for him, for us, for our 5 yr old son's sake, for his health, etc. Apparently, thats not enough. I don't know what to do....In addition to dealing with my dad (and the house, my son, work, etc), I also have my husbands issues - hes done really well, occasionally feeling edgy & occasionally having urges (as a side note - he tried that laser treatment to stop) - but I'm really at my wits end. I too, am edgy & a little cranky with all thats going on, and feel like its okay for him to be that way, but not me.... So, if anyone has been in a similar situation w/a spouse or sibling or friend who quit after someone else was diagnosed, I'd appreciate any insight you may have.
