Aww I wouldn't put smoke things everywhere.. but healthy things! like showing how youre excited that hes saving his life..

Well, yeah... but I couldn't think of any "anti-smoking" or healthy decorations, so....I just went with the gray. Tongue

Lots of green, I suppose, could be "healthy"... Huh

Always look on the bright side of life... *whistles*

I don't know your age or position in life, but if he's not a grand dad already try working some photo magic with you, your dad and some cute little kids thanking him for making the right choice so he could be a part of their life. Hang them where you they'll touch his heart when he sees them.  I know this one sounds i gross but the impact could be good.. get photos of smokers lungs and healthy ones side by side... put his name on the healthy ones with a "Thank You we're so proud" ...  make a large size fake bank account statement and add up the money he's saved in cigarettes so far...  cheerleading things like this and knowing how proud you are of him might be the "extras' that will get him through some tough times.   Good luck and you're a great daughter to show such love!

they say that when someone drops a habit, they pick up another one, u could put up alittle table or sumthin with all the new habits that he has taken up, since he stopped smokin
~living healthy
~getting whiter teeth
~wanting to live longer
~feeling good about himself
~acomplishing hard goals
~sticking with it
~a new out look on life
~or maybe just chewing gum, lol

You could use one of those "sausage" pillows and make a cover for it that looks like a cigarette, then a little felt suitcase for it and attach a label to the pillow saying "So long and don't come back" (or just use it as a punching bag)

Or you could make a cigarette packet piata and fill it with tons of little treats and have your dad destroy it like he managed to kill his habit.

This is so true. I quit smoking just about a month ago and since then I have been crafting non-stop! It's completely become my new vice.

But yeah, speaking from personal experience, I don't think you should use "smokey" things. I really like the idea of emphasizing all the good things that will come from him quitting, like people have been suggesting. For me, talking about cigarettes and things just makes me want to smoke again...and I only smoked for 5 years...not 40!
Congrats to your dad and you rule for showing him how proud you are about it!

We calm ourselves with store-bought dreams.

sounds like a good swap from smoking to making crafts though! ive never smoked, but kudos to all who have smoked and were able to overcome it!

I like the pinata idea...how about cool/cold things to decorate with as an opposite to the smoking stuff, like serving a cool soup. Cold cherry or strawberry soup is yummy and cold cucumber soup is great for a savory dish...you can google all kinds of cold soups. Maybe you can play soccer...or have kickball for the kids...to help celebrate his "kicking the habit." You might give him some gifts you need good lungs to use...some cool balloons to blow up, an inflatible raft, an air mattress, a brass instrument, a jogger's heart monitor...etc.
