Congrats on quitting smoking!
I remember when my wife quit a few years before me and she basically said she will not bug me about my smoking or quitting, but i need to smoke outside and away from the doors so the smoke doesn't come in the house. Hopefully you can come to some compromise with your husband...
Now that I quit I can really smell smokers, and yes I can notice the smell waft in even with someone smoking just outside a door. Amazing how dulled out sense of smell is when when smoked.
I took up jogging as well. Start slow by doing a light jog for a few minutes and then walk for a few minutes and alternate like this, as you build up stamina you will jog longer and walk less. You'll really notice an improvement in your mental attitude and it reduced the cravings for me as well.
The other thing I found since quitting is that I am more attuned to my health. I realized how much smoking was draining away my heath and stamina. I try to eat better, I exercise, and I went off to doctor to do the physicals, blood work, and colonoscopy, etc. I feel a lot 'younger' now than the last 5-10 years of smoking.
