    Default NYE- stuck with smokers!

    Hey happy new year!!!
    My NYE was uneventful but something that I noticed as being an issue was smokers! Tobacco and weed! I couldn't get away from it!! I ended up sitting inside all night watching a movie by myself. What do u girls do when ppl smoke around you. It's something that will happen a lot I guess. U can't escape smokers but how do u handle it?

    Tobacco- I sit up wind if possible or I go inside. I find people are pretty respectful of not smoking to close to me though.

    Weed- I would have cracked it (and I have before at my brothers mates).

    I wouldn't move. If they lit up at a table I was at I'd say "sorry I'm not allowed to be around smoke at the moment" and let them move away to have a ciggie.

    As for the weed... If I was at someone else's house I'd excuse myself and leave altogether. If it was my house I'd tell the offenders to please take their weed off the premises or I would call the cops.

    Some people just don't think. How inconsiderate to smoke around a pregnant woman! I know alot of smokers, including DH and no one ever smoked anywhere near me whilst pregnant; my home is smoke free, DH smokes outside or in the garage.
    If someone blatantly lit up around me whilst obviousy pregnant I'd be shocked. Especially weed; have they no brains?
    I would have done what you did and removed myself if I was unfortunate enough to be around clueless people. It's just common courtesy I think.

    I used to smoke and if I was with a group I always asked if anyone minded before I lit up. No one likes breathing in secondhand smoke, especially unborn babies.

    Did anyone ever say yes?

    OP I think it's gross, thankfully the people who I socialize frequently with who smoke always move away to do so, my extended family are terrible for it though so I just move away an if anybody says anything I just say its the smoke
