Besides the fact that I am highly allergic to smoke... I just can`t stand the smell of it and being around people who smoke just kills me, literally. I will get really sick in seconds if I`m around it. Its gotten worse with age but seriously, just for the health of your wife and daughter?, you should seriously consider giving it up mate. Something to consider. Go for a run every time you feel like lighting up or something.
I think your'e right about it getting worse as you get older.
When I was a teen I was the ONLY one of my crowd that didn't smoke...
I remember riding in a car jammed in the middle with everyone of my buds puffing away on unfiltered ciggies, one after the other,
I inhaled so much second hand- smoke, I might as well as been a smoker too.
If I was lucky enough to get a window seat I would try to crack the window a bit and my buds would punch the **************** out of my arms for trying.
I get an instant headache when I smell smoke...even worse is the smell of the butted ones in an ashtray.
I run every morning along the river, last week there was a guy about a 1/4 of a mile away smoking, while working on the golf Course, the wind was just right and the smell hit me just for a few seconds...Instant Headache.
Getting the car gassed up, same thing, soon as I get a whiff of the raw gas...heads starts pounding.
'Old Lady' perfume and cheap cologne too...****************, my head is hurting just talking about it.
