That sounds really bad!! My dad is a home smoker with three asthmatics in the house and won't stop, grrr!!

I went for the i will not make it easy for you to smoke, which meant that every time he lit up and put it down, i would stub it out then move the ashtray and cigs lol

Otherwise sorry, if you can't get them to stop the best that you can do is find a space for yourself, and ask them not to smoke when you are around.


Could they be persuaded to smoke at an open window? I know it will still affect you but less so. Or just open all of the windows when they do smoke and sit by one.
