Okay, so our house doesn’t always smell great. Sometimes, due to what I’m cooking, it smells wonderful, and sometimes, well it just smells like house. One thing it NEVER smells like? Smoke. We live in a smoke-free apartment, which for two people like us, is great! My husband smoked for a few weeks while he was a pre-teen, until his mom made him smoke a pack until he turned green. I never smoked, not once. All four of our parents smoke or have smoked in the past. Mine? Don’t do it in the house anymore. His do. Guess where we stay when we visit? You guessed it. My husband is actually allergic to smoke. I just can’t breathe around it. I have started staying away from people who are smoking because it makes me cough and wheeze so much. If we did live in a place where people had smoked before, then we’d have to go through air cleaner ratings and get a purifier to clean out the house, because no matter how much you try, you just can’t get that out of the air unless you completely air out the house, wash the walls and ceilings. Trust me, my parents did that and I am blessed every time we go to their house that I can breathe and not have to suck in lungs full of smoke. Now in the 2 states we have lived in they are passing or have passed laws requiring inside communal areas to all be smoke free. Yippee! P.S. This is not to shame those who do smoke, I can’t stop you, but I hope you stop yourself!
