Greetings dear brothers and sisters I refer to a situation where a Christian family is struggling with a family member who smokes....the smoker being the male head of the family The family have young children. The smell of lingering smell of smoke in the room, on clothes and on the breath is horrible to the wife and children. Even though the smoking occurs outside....the smells linger for hours on the husband There have been many promises of giving up over the years, which have never happened not even for a whole day. The wife knew of the smoking before marriage but was told it would stop....because she loved she trusted. And with each child born further promises but no fruition. The false promises have led to mistrust. Even more concern is raised now that evidence shows that "third hand" smoking......that is chemicals left in clothing fibres, the hair and the like are just as dangerous as "second hand" smoking Prayers and practical advise on how the family can deal with this smelly issue which is affecting their marriage would be much appreciated.
