Hi Maheswari,
I have tagged you for a meme. This is to lighten up your spirits.Take it if you feel like.

Even I diddn't notice your signature until today and I thought maybe someone has hacked into your system
I do understand your concern. But your husband has to be aware himself and give up the habit on his own. Even I would have arguments with D regarding this, who was an intermittent smoker. But all at once about 5/6 years back something triggered and he left smoking and never went back even for once.
So, I feel only when the awareness comes from within will he understand. Maybe ask the doc to help out by talking to him
