Hi, tobacco usage is a addiction and needs to be treated. Catching him by blood tests may not help achieve this. Understanding that it is a disease and making him get help would be the correct thing to do.
Next Steps
To my knowledge these blood tests are not available for home testing in India. Laboratories can do it for you as long as they have your husbands blood sample.
Health Tips
Shaming, inducing guilt, fear and shock may make a person quit, but unless they understand addiction they will tend to gravitate towards the addiction.
