He has COPD and many other issues. How do I stop him? I have tried everything including asking his DR! I've stated not good for his health, cost too much, smelly, won't help his current chronic cough, he could do something else, a hobby, walk ect.. He's 77 and states he's MY father and a grown man and will walk to the store if I don't get him some. I actually went to our usual store and asked them to please not sell any to my dad... I feel bad for him but I'm at loss on what to do... He has lived with me since his stroke in December of 2011. Doctors say he doesn't have dementia but I think other wise... Any suggestions on how I can encourage him NOT to smoke? I have even tried distracting him with his favorite ice cream but he starts right back in asking as soon aas the ice cream is gone..
