Cigarette is dangerous for Health

I cant stand the smell of cigarette smoke, it gets caught in the back of your throat and chokes you and its just horrible. i'm glad i don't smoke, and non of my close friends smoke, its so much easier. nothing against anyone that does smoke, I do have friends that smoke, they just know not to do it around me.

Alternative and Methods for Quitting Scheduled reduction: One study showed that people who used a systematic withdrawal schedule were twice as likely to quit as those who went cold turkey. The procedure involves the following steps: * Divide the number of minutes per day awake by the number of daily cigarettes; the result is the minute-long wait between smokes. * Set up a schedule with time intervals based on this result and using a timer, smoke only at those intervals; if the "cigarette appointment" is missed by more than five minutes, the smoker must skip that cigarette. * The following week, one-third fewer cigarettes are used and the smoking time is recalculated based on the lower number. * During the third week the count is again reduced by a third, and the smoker quits in the fourth week. Change daily habits: * Change the daily schedule as much as possible. Eat at different times or eat many small meals instead of three large ones, sit in a different chair, rearrange

If everyone all living in a block of flats which contained 4 individual flats, and only one person did not smoke pot in their flat and everyone is smoking it on a regular daily basis, would it affect the person in the flat who doesn't smoke it? And would it cause a high level of intoxication for the person in the flat it is not smoked, especially if it can be smelt strongly in the connecting hallway?
