    But him a vape. I know it's not as good as quitting entirely, but it's not as harmful. I am a nicotine addict, in the same exact boat as your father. So believe me when I say if he wants his nicotine fix, he's gonna have it. Give get him a vape, and maybe he can slowly lower his nicotine percentage over time until he doesn't need it anymore. Quitting cold turkey is an almost guaranteed relapse.

      Agreed. Limiting sugar, fat or losing weight is similar. If he WANTS to quit he needs to keep records and slowly REDUCE the amount he is smoking. Until ( with luck) quitting entirely is possible. Even if it isn't the reduction is still of benefit

    Make him busy, engage him in various activities and exercises and hide all his cigarettes.

    The people I knew that smoked started dying at age 45. Two others both got lung cancer and died at age 52. Most of the rest died at about age 60. One guy made it to age 80, but he had COPD from about age 65 until he died. He coughed a lot before he retired. He had to carry an oxygen tank with him for about 15 years.

    Encourage him quit smoking and of course, never smoke in front of him ( if you're a smoker yourself). Then well, it's only his will ....

    Remind him of how much he spends per year on tobacco, then provide a list of what could be bought/paid for with that money. I was spending $500 per year on coffee.

    Tell him that if he keeps smoking he might get cancer

    You have to get him to go to a program to stop and he would have to be willing.

    He can Wayne if he is willing. Instilling is all you can do
