You sound like a good kid..
But Bi**** at your mother as you put it, doesn't help..
Talking nice would do better but if she still wants to smoke in her own house then that's really her choice not yours..
Passive smoking is bad if you're in a busy bar with 10 smokers around you, not in a whole house with just one smoker..
The smoke doesn't even stay in the air that long and the smell will not kill you..
Simply leave the room when she smokes..
Well I live in an apartment, two bedrooms. Nothing huge. I didn't mean that I literally bi*** at her, I shouldn't have said that because that put the wrong idea in your head. What we do is debate it, for about 5-10 minutes tops. She knows the money she could save within just one month.
Some say their parents stopped smoking after they told them they didn't like it, and since they cared about their kids they stepped outside. Now, I know my mother cares about me like nothing else, so I don't feel as if she doesn't care about me, but thats just the impression people (like the op) may be trying to get at. I agree with both sides. I see why some people would say that if they cared about their kids they would go outside and smoke, but I also see where people are coming from when they mention that if they are paying to live there they can do what they want. Both arguements are true.
