New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 19, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZettungo Wednesday November g 3A Wifes cigarettes overrule her love of life SIM I I Dear Abby My wife is the most unselfish person I know Shell do anything except for one thing She loves her children and ddes everything they ask except for what they want most My wife adores our grandchildren and will indulge them with anything they ask except for what they harass her about most often She refuses to quit smoking Her love for her family is exceeded only by her addiction to nicotine Cigarettes are her first thought in the morning and they receive her last caress at night She has emphysema breathes heavily and coughs constantly We havent shared a bed in years because her coughing keeps me awake She sleeps on the living room couch to elevate her head and facilitate her breathing Cough drops and other nonprescription drugs temporarily relieve a variety of ailments so she ingests them daily along with prescription medications She has undergone angioplasty to clear a clogged artery and was advised by her surgeon to stop smoking Unfortunately her addiction is more powerful than her desire to live I also have lung disease from 40 years of smoking cigarettes pipes and cigars Five times I quit for more than a year Twice I quit cold turkey without Twice I had acupuncture I quit the last time three years ago during a smoke stoppers class at the hospital I know smoking is a difficult habit to break And I suspect its more difficult for people who are genetically prone to addictions My wife is a recovering She has tried to quit smoking Shes had acupuncture twice and she also attended the smoke stoppers course She has worn nicotine patches and has chewed nicotine based gun But she has never gone more than a day or two without a cigarette She confessed that she lit up while driving home from one of the acupuncture In deference to her family she doesnt smoke in the house In wind rain and cold temperatures she goes outside to light up And this further aggravates her respiratory problems Im angry Im angry with my wife Im angry with myself for being her codependent Im angry at cigarette companies for enticing us to take up this insidious habit And Im angry with the government for not exercising more control over a drug that kills Americans every year My Wife was born of sturdy Norwegian ancestry on a farm in Minnesota and for years her body stubbornly resisted the hourly doses of nicotine But little by little her body is losing the battle She needs help I need help The Man Who Loves Her Dear Man Your wife may be beyond the help you seek but perhaps it will comfort you to know that your powerful letter may convince another person to stop smoking And tomorrow will provide the perfect opportunity Readers tomorrow Nov 20 marks the 21st Annual Great American Smokebut The Smokeout It a oneday campaign to encourage smokers to quit smoking for 24 hours to prove that they can do it Last year more than quit for the day a giant step in the right direction My readers tell me that while cold turkey is the most difficult its also the most effective way to kick the habit Those who need help or want more information about the effects of tobacCo may call the local chapter of the American Cancer Society or 1800 ACS2345 So Dear Readers if youre hooked on tobacco and have been saying One of these days Im going to why not join the Great American Smokeout and quit tomorrow It wont be easy but it will be the best Thanksgiving gift you can give yourself and those who love you
