I Cant Stand The Smell Of Cigarette Smoke

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,115 People

    I grew up in a home with Dad smoking,

    sitting at home smelling the smoke or on the go seemed so rude, had to deal. sitting in the vehicle with my Dad I'd of course have the back seat and smell it and nasty ashes even burning ashes would fly back inside and fall on me and upset me.

    I absolutely hate the smell of cigarette smoke,

    which sucks because my boyfriend is a smoker, I hate when he smells like he smothered himself in cigarettes.

    Both of my parents still haven't quit.

    I hate it so much. I can't stop myself from thinking I'm breathing in cancer. I'm so glad they don't do it in the house anymore, but I still endure it in the car and sometimes smell it through my windows when they do it outside on a windier day. It's kind of like slow torture...

    My parents used to smoke about 2-3 packs of

    cigarettes a day. When I was in grade school, my classmates even told me my clothes always smelled like cigarette smoke. It was the most embarrassing thing. When I told my parents, my Mom quit smoking cold turkey, and my Dad promised to only smoke outside and never around me...

    I detest my father for smoking

    when my brother and I are in the vehicle. It's disgusting being forced to inhale that toxic secondhand smoke. Opening a window doesn't even help. Gross.

    and living on a cow farm, I'd choose the farm.

    Eww Smoke

    This is why I love the winter time, because then I have an excuse to wear a scarf and whenever I pass a smoker or a fire pit I can just put my scarf over my nose and it is much better. Also I hang out with friends who smoke and my scarf is also quite helpful in those situations.

    It's not that I can't stand the smell of it,

    it's more like I'm allergic to it where my throat starts to itch and my eyes get red and puffy. More irritating if anything. It look my parents the first 12 years of my life to figure out why I had these symptoms while at home...after that my Dad started to smoke outside the...

    My mom and dad visited us this weekend.

    Both have started smoking again, despite each having recent health scares with related heart and respiratory problems. So disappointing.

    What really grinds my gears is

    when I'm at a traffic light with the windows down or with outside air coming in, and I don't realize there's someone hanging their cigarette out the window right in front of me. Then the light turns green, I start going, and I get a giant blast of cigarette smoke down my throat...

    It's nasty. Makes me feel nauseas

    and just brings back horrible memories of growing up. My little brother has asthma from second hand smoking. I don't give a damn if you smoke, just smoke where there aren't people, or children, or animals.

    Since I quit smoking the smell of it makes me

    quite ill. I wonder how I smelled before and think how awful it must have been to those around me who were sensitive to smell. I did always try to be conscious of my smoking when I was a smoker and now I am glad. I don't expect others to change for me but I am certainly glad I...

    I think it should be a law

    that parents can't smoke in the car or house with a child under the age of 18. Why is it fair that poor kids have to breathe second hand smoke and risk getting lung cancer when they're older because an adult is too selfish doing their own filthy habit? The kids can't escape and...

    Though I was a chain smoker at a point of time

    in my life, today I can't stand the smell of it while standing near a smoker after his puff. At the same time I love to breath the direct smell of a smoke puffed out. A passive smoking. After 10 years of quitting it, I still miss it. Won't have never quit it if it won't have...

    I absolutely hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

    It is so disgusting when I go out of a restaurant or the grocery store and smell smoke the moment I step out the door. People that smoke have no respect for those that dont. I think people the wait till they get further out for they will start smoking but nope they don't care. I...

    It disgusts me. Both my parents smoked even

    before I was born and didn't stop when I was in my moms belly so I'm stuck with life long breathing problems. Neither one of my parents have made an effort to stop either, and that's what bothers me the most. They know they're hurting my lungs, and they couldn't care less.

    Being in the same room with smokers makes my throat hurt, my ears and nose itch, my eyes water and my lungs and throat tighten up. I'm obviously allergic so why don't people have respect and stop smoking around me??!!! It makes me sick for days! Smokers have no rights anymore so...

    I remember being little and sitting in the kitchen talking with smoke blowing in my face, but I was used to it and not in like a 'child abuse' kind of way. But then my parents quit smoking or go outside on the porch, so when I smell it I don't have that tolerance like when I...

    I can't stand it when someone flicks a

    cigarette butt out at my car. Especially in the dark when I get this big glowing streak at my window. I wish I had a huge giant stuffed fake cigarette butt to throwback. If I can I'll nail them with the washers before they roll the window back up.
