I wish you stopped smoking.
I wish you would stop smoking.
What is the difference in meaning between these two?
Thanks in advance
OK. What is the general difference between the patterns wish + would and wish + that clause. Maybe I would understand why it does not make sense.
You started smoking in the past. I wish you hadn't started.
You smoke now. I wish you didn't smoke.
You habitually smoke in bed. I wish you wouldn't smoke in bed.
