I was raised in a home where health was always considered to be a top priority and both my parents made sure that none of us children were afflicted by any diseases that could actually be avoided. This was made sure by maintaining a strict diet and a very clean surrounding at all times. For any slight signs of being ill or falling prey to the common flu, visits to our family physician was called for.
It has been years since those days and now I have found myself taking care of my own brood and having been married with children for several years now, I could honestly say that it is not really that easy as it seems. I have met my husband for about more than a decade ago and have known him to be a heavy smoker. Regardless of my specific wishes that he get rid of this habit of his, he still was insistent in continuing. Although, honestly, aside from this, there is actually nothing that I could not love about him, most especially his good nature as a human being. I have expressed my concerns about our own kids getting involved in the same habit and the effect it could have at such young ages. Without any further convincing, he agreed that he would only smoke outside on the porch and not in the presence of the children. Much to my delight and was quite a development on his part, I have actually purchased padron cigars online just to show him my appreciation.
