Hi doctor,

My husband smokes a lot. I am quarreling with him often regarding this issue. I feel so sad and depressed when I see him smoking. My husband gives me assurance that he will quit. But, he is doing the same again. Please help me with this problem and save my family. Everybody says to ignore it, but I could not. Please tell me how to make up my mind to ignore his smoking.
