My mom is an almost lifelong smoker, and when I was living at home I honestly seldom noticed the smell of the smoke. It wasn't until I was in high school that I ever encountered a problem, as one of my teachers had an extreme sensitivity to cigarette smoke, and thought on several occasions that I was secretly a smoker, and tried to catch me on it. Took me a few brushes with 'the law' to realize what was going on and correct her. That cleared things up... though she still had to keep away from me in class. Since moving out I've noticed the smell of smoke much more prominently, and how it clings to my clothes whenever I come back from visiting my parents. Has anyone here had any similar problems living with second hand smoke? How do you cope? I know washing clothes helps, but it doesn't seem to get everything out.
