It’s beautiful out tonight so I opened up my window to get some fresh air and guess what? My neighbor is smoking outside his house. The cigarette smoke drifted right into my bedroom, yuck 🙁 It sucks because I have a nice balcony off the master bedroom but I can’t use it since the neighbor is always smoking outside every night (I have asthma and the cigarette smoke aggravates it).
I can’t wait to move!!!
Thanks for reading my rant.

Maybe you can ask him to smoke somewhere else, where it wouldn’t drift up into your bedroom.

hahaha I just have to laugh because I feel your pain. I live in a townhouse and my next door neighbor used to smoked, but his wife only let him do it outside. That meant we couldn’t open our back windows if he was out there which sucks because our house has no AC unit!
Anyways, I’m sure you’ll get some flack for you title but just no I agree whole heartedly. One of the reasons I love LA is how much there reducing where you are allowed to smoke 😀

@LisaC: I totally agree with you! We had two neighbors on either side of us that would do that! I have asthma too, and I could just feel my airways tightening and my chest hurting. Not to mention the smell ewe gross!!! I might as well just lick an ashtray…..

Yuck, it’s practically impossible to escape the smell, indoors or out! My fiance lives in a duplex, and the previous neighbors would smoke in the bathroom…the bathroom that is connected through the vents to his bathroom, meaning all that smoke would blow right into his side of the building. His entire place still smells like smoke and they’ve been gone for months. What a gross habit.

It’s nice that I’m not alone (even though I find that terrible!, lol)
I would ask him to smoke elsewhere if I thought he would do it, but I doubt he would.
I suppose he has every right to smoke outside his house but I wish that weren’t the case! It’s funny I have met so many smokers that won’t smoke inside their house or car because they don’t want it to smell bad – I find it incredibly ironic!

I feel your pain – luckily my neighbors do not smoke (or are very considerate about it so I don’t notice), but I live in a heavy smoking town. It was actually a shock when I moved here – I walk or bike everywhere, as it’s a small college town, and sometimes I feel like I can never escape the smell! But I think I’ve improved my lung capacity, since I hold my breath when I walk by smokers

@LisaC: I’ve always thought that was funny/ironic too :p

I am an anti-smoker person myself.
You know what else bugs the crap out of me? It’s when you have that group of smokers at work that take their smoke break right next to the door you have to exit out of and you walk through a huge cloud of that crap. UGHHHH, please be more considerate of the people that don’t want to smell like your bad habit all day.

EW! That was one of the best things about us moving into our house. We lived in a 2nd story apt and always had to keep the windows shut, even in the summer time, because all of our neighbors smoked outside.

@da3lyn – I totally agree with you! That’s one of the things I hated about going to school/work was people always smoked right outside the doors. They are literally forcing everyone to breathe in second hand smoke. It’s awful.

Psssst!!! All those who are complaining about smoking right outside the doors of your work – your state may have workplace smoking laws, and smoking right outside the doors may be a violation of that law. In our state, for instance, there must be designated smoking areas which are not allowed to be within 20 feet of an entryway door. Employees are not legally allowed to smoke right outside of the door – or within 20 feet of it.
With the weather getting colder, usually HR will have to send out a few reminders, but for the most part, since we were all notified that no one is allowed to smoke that close to the doors, it has taken care of most of the “cloud of smoke upon exiting” issues! Anyhow, just an idea.

I don’t like it either. I have asthma and it really bothers me to be around smoke. I don’t think that people realize how it effects other people’s health when they smoke. I have asked people to go somewhere else to smoke before (I was at a football game and it wasn’t like I could find another seat). I don’t think it is fair to assume that everyone else wants to be around it.

@SadieBee: I do the same. Haha! Holding my breath when walking past smokers. The smell is so very nauseating!
