Give him the most recent statistics about tobacco-related diseases and point out that these diseases eventually lead to death. Remind him that his children need him alive, not dead.

Well, the smoker may take his smoking somewhere else but it’s a good beginning. He’ll realize sooner that he won’t be able to enjoy his favorite TV show or spend time with you if he has to stay outside all of the time.
4.

Tell him about the financial benefits of quitting smoking

Make him aware of the many things and services he can get if he stops spending his money on cigarettes. Encourage him to open a savings account where he can save all his “cigarette money”. He’d be surprised to find that he can buy a car in just a few years!
2.
