The place allows you to smoke indoors, so I'm struggling to see the problem. If two newcomers object to the fact that you smoke then just remind them of this house rule, taking care to point out that it was a condition for your accepting the tenancy.
If they still object then invite them to sample the hospitality of any of the numerous similar establishments where smoking indoors isn't allowed.

You don't have a room mate problem; your room mates do. Find your own place with no one else. Preferably you can buy it so there are no landlord issues. Yeah, I know. You can't "afford" it, right? So basically you NEED the help of others to get a place. You require their assistance. In fact, not to put too fine a point on it, you're still dependent on others. And THAT means you have to be mindful of their needs as well. You don't have a "right" to smoke, so if it is an issue, whether or not is used to be, you need to stop, go outside, or move.
THEY moved in AFTER he did. So unless he lied and told them he is a non-smoker, THEY are the ones who have to make the adjustment. If they dont want to live with a smoker, then they should not have moved into a house with a smoker.
For each product to go through the premarket approval process, the FDA estimates it will take about 1,700 hours of labor, costing companies at least $1 million per product tested. Only one such product, Swedish Match, has entered into that approval process, says Arnaud Dumas de Rauly, treasurer of the Vapor Technology Association and president of e-liquid—the substance vaporized in e-cigarette devices—manufacturer Gaiatrend USA. “It’s going to cost time and it’s going to go nowhere,” Dumas de Rauly says. “It’s an antique process.” The only companies expected to afford this compliance are tobacco companies like Altria MO, -2.73% and R.J. Reynolds RAI, -1.59% that can fund the testing with profits from traditional cigarette sales. “For big tobacco, this is pocket change to them,” says Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association. “Other companies in the industry will be forced to sell out to investors or focus internationally.”
It explains that while additional research is needed on multiple areas of e-cigarette use, regulations are required now to address health concerns, in particular for: Advertising: An appropriate government body must restrict e-cigarette advertising, promotion and sponsorship, to ensure that it does not target youth and non-smokers or people who do not currently use nicotine. Indoor use: legal steps should be taken to end use of e-cigarettes indoors in public and work places. Evidence suggests that exhaled e-cigarette aerosol increases the background air level of some toxicants, nicotine and particles.

And I repeat: The OP did not ask your opinion. It wasn't wanted or solicitated. You are imposing your opinion on an adult who did not ask for it!
