For so long I took offense to when non-smokers would criticize things based on some "smokers smell." I never smelled it and I chalked it up to them just trying to be a jerk to me because they didn't like the fact that I smoked. Sure I could understand when I just came in from smoking, but there was no way it would just stick to things and be smelly much later, ridiculous! I once remember a big argument between me and my father when he complained that the chair we bought for my mom and stored at my apartment stunk and took 30 minutes of washing to get the smell out. At that time he was just being mean and trying to make me feel guilty for smoking so I would quit. Well now that I don't smoke anymore (almost 2 months woohoo ) I CAN SMELL IT AND I HATE IT! I mean I still like the smell of fresh smoke, when I happen to be by a lit cigarette (which I try and avoid but sometimes you just can't.) But that stale stuck to fabric smell? YUK I totally get why people complained (Especially in my car lol) about it. I just want to give a big apology to the non-smokers for our lingering aroma as well as offer a bit of explanation on behalf of those still stuck on ciggies.
