My dad is a chain smoker.He is not getting younger and we want him to quit.He told us its been his habit and hes now addicted to it. Hes always in a bad mood if we dont allow him to smoke.As the eldest, ive confronted him so many times. Im so fed up of discussing this with him in a calm manner. I only want him to be in good shape. He is 49 yrs old but he looks like a 70 yr old guy. I am so worried about him. He was given an early retirement from his job because he is becoming weak. Yesterday we had a fight again and its hurting me a lot.I use to look up to him. Now, his loosing my respect just because of smoking.My mom cant do anything about this.If we dont give him what he wants he gets very moody and his out of control. My dads health is degrading and we all can see that.He choose smoking over his family. My last option is to send him for counselling where he refuses to attend. Do u have other options?
