Expressing your need to vape nicotine as a coping mechanism for PTSD and anxiety to your wife requires empathy, understanding, and open communication. Start by explaining to your wife the reasons behind your vaping habits and how it helps alleviate symptoms of PTSD and anxiety for you. Be honest and vulnerable about your struggles and the impact that vaping has on your mental health and well-being. Listen to your wife's concerns and validate her feelings while also advocating for your own needs and experiences. Explore potential compromises or alternatives that could address both of your needs and concerns. This could include setting boundaries around vaping in certain situations or exploring other coping strategies or therapies to manage your symptoms. Ultimately, focus on fostering open dialogue, empathy, and mutual respect in navigating this challenging issue together as a couple.
