my dh tried to quit smoking yesterday cold turkey and it was a miserable day........he's had two smokes today and when he came home on his lunchbreak i saw his hands shaking. i feel SO bad for him, but he has got to stop w/ a quickness because this baby is due in two weeks, and even though he only smokes outside i know there is still secondhand smoke clinging to him that we dont want around us anymore.

any advice?

tabaccum as a homeopathic.
or, find a copy of the book 'rational recovery', go to the website.
will give him total power over his decision to stop being a smoker.
here's the URL-
rational recovery

Quitting tobacco is really tough. The first thing that has to happen is that he has to be ready to do it. Certainly not homeopathic, but nicotine gum really helped me kick the habit. Even after not smoking for several years, I had a small fear that I wouldn't be able to stick with it--that is until being diagnosed with cancer. Now, when I see people smoking, I want to tell them that when they think that they are ready to to quit to really go for it because chemo sucks. It's a really tough habit to break--it's still semi-socially acceptable, cheap compared to other drugs & legal. Do your best to be supportive of him. It may take a few false starts, but he can do it!
