Rant time - my sister is outside smoking. I am inside and there are no windows open and I STILL smell it!! Will this odor aversion ever go away?
Oh No Donna... smoking stinks and I am sorry that you have to smell it...
I have actually found I enjoy the smell of cigarette smoke wafting on a breeze outside...not so much on clothing, hair, inside spaces.
Perhaps you can ask her to go a bit further away from the house? You might tell her it is difficult for you to smell it?
Hope she isn't out there too often!
I’ve been noticing the longer I am quit the better cigs smell too. I’ve told many people I pass how good it is. Kindly, they offer me one. Easy to turn down as I can’t imagine smoking one now. I know I talk to them longer tho.
Seems all you can do is be be honest with your sister. It’s not a hard request. When my husband attempted a quit, it wasn’t hard for me to go somewhere else to smoke. It’s common courtesy. Unfortunately you can’t much about the residual smell. I doubt she will want to change clothes and shower after each cig.
Interestingly, I went to WalMart today and smelled cigarette smoke everywhere. I'm just going to have to get used to it or stay home forever.
I smell cigarette smoke all over Walmart too and most of it is NOT fresh smoke, it is smoke on the clothing of shoppers...there are many times I see people standing outside smoking and it makes me crazy. I hate the smell and I don't care how fresh it is...I have worked really hard to get and keep my lungs as clean as possible, I am at high risk of having issues because of inhaling someone else's smoke. I don't expect to ever get over it.
As for your sister...maybe she could just move to a different area?
