    How often are you around second hand smoke? Do you have concerns about 2nd hand smoke?

    With my living situation, I am frequently around second hand smoke.  As a smoker, I am aware of the hazard that I pose to others.  I really wish that I could quit smoking, not only for my own health, but the health of others.

    A tragic story I have to relay is about the death of my aunt Virginia.  She never smoked a day in her life.  Her husband was an avid pipe smoker.  My aunt passed away from emphysema.  That is a definite result of second hand smoke.  My uncle had quit smoking twenty years before her death.

    It is good for the smoker he has the cigarette filter but for a second hand smoker or a passive smoker is worse because he is inhaling the nicotine directly without being filtered. A second hand smoker can also be addicted to smoking and will experience the same physical damage as the smoker or even worse.
    I know a little child whose mother is a chain smoker, everyday the child cries only for the mother to blow the smoke on her face then she stops crying. It does show that the child is addicted to the smoke.
    Both the mother and the child are always coughing.

    Thank you all for your comments and sharing your personal accounts of those affected by cigarette smoke and 2nd hand smoke. Wow, Hillymillydee, a child already addicted to smoke. It's always interesting to me what I learn from these discussions with my fellow hubbers. Again, I appreciate all of your comments.
