The Secret

Posted on | January 7, 2011 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
My boyfriend is quitting smoking and he’s unbearable to be around. He tries to quit every year at least and lasts about a month–a month I dread. He’s only on his 3rd day and already talking about how he isn’t motivated enough and I feel pretty certain he’ll start smoking again in a couple weeks. I’m not sure exactly what I’m asking except that I want him to succeed, but I also can’t stand how toxic he is when he’s quitting.  Is there some secret for how to be a more patient and understanding girlfriend?

Dear Witness:
It is his deal. Stay out of it  and stay out of his way. Movies, travel, gym are all ways to duck.
