I knew people that quit smoking before I did. They became serious "nazis" about it all. Making rules, dictating, constantly sermonizing. That sucked.
One day I just quit. And I never dictated to people what they did on their own. I never sermonized them. Yes, some people who knew I quit smoking would apologize and ask if they could smoke around me. I said I didn't care either way. Smoke or not smoke, It's your choice. You smoking is not going to "make" me smoke.
Just put them down. If you really don't want to, you won't do it.
