We have a no smoking policy where I work. For smokers, they have to take a break and walk across the street--they cannot even smoke in their car when it is parked in the parking lot.
Someone moved over near me last week and I can smell smoke today. Not fresh smoke, but the kind that lingers on a chain smoker.

Agreed. I used to be a smoker, but this pregnancy has re enforced why i quit and would not ever pick it up again. During pregnancy my first and worst aversion is cigarette smoke. I can walk by someone in a store and know they smoke because of the smell, and i have to close the windows when my neighbor goes outside to smoke because i can smell it

Yuck! I always smell it when I get into the elevators after a smoker was in it and I hate it! I quit smoking about 4 years ago (smoked for about 2 years) and I am so glad I quit. Eck, I can't even imagine it.

I think I determined that it isn't who I thought it was, but someone who had stopped by her cube. Phew!
I am really sensitive to smoke, so I smell it quickly. I asked someone across from me, and she didn't smell it.

Tell me about it. SO has "quit". Ha! I smell it dude! You're sneaking! Plus his roommate (we're waiting til we formally announce before he gives him notice) is a smoker who smokes in the **** house. The place smells like an ashtray every time. SO says no more, but I'm not holding my breath. Well I do actually, anytime I smell it. And this is one reason why he can do all the cooking and cleaning. I'll stay in the bedroom, smoke free.

Right there with you. I get asthma around smoke. I get asthma when it's on people's clothes! It's so much worse when I'm pregnant. I get really ticked at people smoking in public around stores or especially the hospital.

I grew up in a household with a smoker that smoked around us all the time. In the house, in the car, & so did a lot of our family members.
My lungs are damaged directly as a result, & I despise smoking!!
