Sort of a rant following, hope you’ll excuse me.
I will never allow smoking in my home.
I honestly don’t care if it’s my father, mother in law or whomever really, smoking will never be allowed in my home.
Because, yes it’s their decision if they want to screw up their health, but once they’re in my home, then it all becomes about my health and my family’s health. Not to mention it’s just plain and simple: stinky!
When we go to terraces with friends, I try to sit as far as possible from tables where people are smoking. It bothers me so much so, that I sometimes get sick from being in a room where there’s smoking.
I’ve lived in a place where people smoked. Not in my room, but in theirs and in the kitchen. It didn’t matter too much that they weren’t in my room, it was just as bad or worse since second hand smoking is even worse. Three years of that was enough.
