Our children learn by example. If you smoke, chances are they will smoke at some point in their lives. Knowing this, how much sense does your strategy of suffering for your children make?
Let them know that you love them, but show them that you value your own life. Talking about joy doesn't teach them joy. Set the example. They are watching.
