My husband has quit smoking about 5 times now since I've known him. I do give him credit for continuing to try. Anyway, he knows now how it affects him. And the last 2 times, he started a workout program the same day he quit. The exercise gives him the boost he feels he is missing from smoking and also helps withe mood swings the quitting can cause. I would suggest trying to get him to exercise. If you guys can work it out so you can exercise together (even just a daily walk) if at all possible, that would probably be even better. Sounds like you could use a little boost too.
