I Want To Say Thank You To Everyone For Their Support That I Have Started Using This Site It Has Helped Me To Not Feel Alone.

But here is my actual question that I am hoping someone might be able to help me with. We had to move in with my uncle. On top of PH I am also allergic to cigarettes smoke and my uncle in law smokes so I am confined to my room. He is willing to quit with help but no insurance and I no there are free programs to help if anyone knows any of them can they help me. Thank you

Look up the American Lung Assoc program online. They have many helpful tips on how to quit. That is what I used. And I also used nicotine patches. They are expensive, but if he has the money to buy cigarettes, he could pay for them! I smoked for more than 50 years and was finally able to quit 5 and 1/2 years ago. Good luck!

Maybe he could help by smoking outside only would be a good start and help him to cut down that way too! Have a good day Stay Strong and breathe easy!🙏💕

Most states offer free help with quitting smoking. They give you patches and will have someone call and try to give you helpful information and ideas on quitting

Agree! Even though my son in law has COPD and is on a neb machine, he can't seem to be able to quit. It's not only affecting him but also all the others in the house. When we are there visiting he smokes outside and I appreciate that but I sure do worrry about him--he's younger than me and if he doesn't quit he's gonna go before I do! My grandmother died of emphazema and I'm so concerned that I could pick this up via second hand smoke. I don't want to have to be the one to ask, but I think I'm going to have to ask if he will simply try harder to quit so we can all live! Including the children! All you can do I'm afraid is to ask nicely. He has a solution to his problem; you do not have one for yours and he should be conscious of this (on so many levels).
