Oh hi Meredith,
I hate answering a question with a question yet why do you believe you need to tell this person? I haven’t met a single person who thinks smoking is healthy. It is a known killer yet people still do it just like how people still use microwaves even though it is a known health hazard.
I understand this member sinks yet it is their vice just like you and I have ours. With that being said tread the waters carefully if you want to bring it up. My clients who smoke I causally mention it. My clients know I don’t support their smoking habits yet they understand I support them. Find out why they smoke. We do everything for a reason. The complement sandwich approach is quite effective also. Applaud that person for their hard work. Also positive psychology is a great tool where you show them their strengths.
All and all one person smells of smoke and another reeks of sweat. They both sink yet at least they’re at a gym doing things that are usually beneficial instead of other places.
