I don't smoke...never have, never will. However, my husband & every single member of his family does. It's a giant pet peeve of mine since they smell, leave butts in my yard, never wash their hands after & don't seem to care if they smoke near my children. I even had to kick his brother out because he would leave butts on my furniture!! Anyway....we share a car & I've asked that Hubs not smoke in the car because of the three car seats. His job is less than 10 mins away so I feel it's reasonable to smoke before or after he's in the vehicle. He thinks I'm being ridiculous & smokes any way. Then today I found out that he smokes in the car WITH the kids in there!! I told him I wanted the car seats removed & he wasn't to go anywhere with them alone (he never smokes when I'm around) & he's mad about that. I've given up on getting any of them to quit, but how can I get them to stop smoking around my three small children. I have told them about the effects of smoking & how dangerous 2nd hand smoke is to children, but they feel that because they all grew up around it, it's fine. At this point I don't care if they get mad about it because asking them nicely to stop hasn't worked.
