I Cant Stand The Smell Of Cigarette Smoke

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,380 People

    I really don't understand how people can smoke.

    The smell is gross. I usually leave the area where people are smoking because if I don't, I get nauseous. Marijuana smoke is even worst. Yuck!

    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 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...

    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.

    It's not as bad as cigars

    and pot. The smell of pot always gives me a headache.

    Raised on a heavy smoking household - often

    where it was too thick to breathe. Went on to lead to my dad's death of lung cancer. Horrible way to go! Just opposed to everything related to smoking. We deserve the right to breathe clean air!

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    I used to be a smoker

    for 14 years!! I found out I was pregnant with my first and quit cold turkey, just like that. It's been four years, two more kids and A LOT of stress later and I am so proud to be cigarette free still!

    Cigarette smoke stinks

    so much to me! It's so strong. People who smoke can't get it out of their clothes or anything. And if any smokers feel comfy with smoking or ignoring the health risks associated with it, that's fine. But the worst thing about the smoke to me is knowing that there's so much...

    Raised around smoking v my whole life

    until I came to a Christian college where it is not permitted whatsoever. Have to say, it was a breath of fresh air... literally! Can't even stand 3rd hand smoke, and thankfully my immediate family (all of whom smoke, making me the oddball) has taken to smoking outside, making...

    Okay im not here to judge smokers,

    but I just need to get this off my chest. I can't stand the smell because it doesn't smell good,and I feel light headed and a hard time breathing after. Also more imporantly children, teens, and adults are getting secondhandsmoke. Which is basically caused by someone 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.

    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...

    and gives me headaches. Since I have asthma it's even worse, once I smell it I start coughing a lot and then decide to go inside. My dad used to smoke, it concerned me, he has stopped and I'm happy he did, BTW don't try this at home but I sprayed him with water every time he...

    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...

    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...
