Question: okay so i'm 15 and a freshman in high school ... and no, as everyone may be thinking, i don't smoke. i never want to. the problem is my mom does. and i know it's horrible for her as well as for me. i've tried everything to get her to stop but it jus won't work. she doesn't care, doesn't listen, or doesn't believe me. so i've pretty much came up with the conclusion that she's going to die a smoker. but anywayz, besides that major problem .... i relaly relaly realllllly hate the smell of smoke. i'm so self conscious about it. it digusts me. but my mom always smokes in the house, so our whole house smells like smoke along with all my clothes. i can't even invite friends over (unless there really close ones) because i'm so afraid they'll be offended. i hate it so much!! please help me! what are some good ways of getting the stench out? or at least making it less noticeable!! ahhh thank youuu <33

Well, first of all, if someone wants to stop smoking, it has to be up to them, otherwise they will never follow through!! Tell her truely feel, and how you fear for her life, but I assume you have said all of these points before. Plus, stay away from those stupid patches and gum, does it make any sense to switch from one deadly chemical to another, just becoming addicted to them??? There is this great product out there by “NewReality Life” that helped me stop smoking, and I haven’t had a single cigarette in over a year! It addresses the mental side of addiction, the one thing you need to change if you ever want to have sucess quitting! This little device/mp3 player thing works on the Mind-Body connection thing they talk about in the book “The Secret.” This company seems to have been using that technology before the best-selling book did, and the designing psychologist supposedly pioneered the philosophy. This cool little portable device addresses your desire to smoke, and works with you to end your smoking addiction, not like those stupid hypnosis tapes that NEVER work. Plus you get these really cool little LED glasses which are unbelievably relaxing! You should check it out; they also do stuff like weight loss and stress reduction too!!

Your mom is hooked. I've talked to a lot of smokers and ex-smokers, and those who can make the comparison tell me it's tougher quitting than some illegal drugs out there. She may even be embarrassed that she can't quit. I hated the smell of cigarettes when I was growing up, too. My hair smelled like it and so did my clothes. One of the best suggestions I have is once your clothing is washed, get some really big trash bags and tie them around the hangers. You can hang one of those car air fresheners inside, but that's going overboard, a little. If you can air-dry your clothing outside, that helps a LOT. Don't worry about having your friends over. Your mom isn't the only smoker on the planet. If they're uncomfortable, they'll tell you.

If your mom is addicted to smoking , be thankful it is only that" there are a lot worst thing's other kid's mom's are addicted too' So if you want to have friend's over just let them know she smoke's and have your space as fresh smelling as you can when they come over , and be patient she can quit some day it is not life threatening to do so' It may just not be her time to stop smoking, but do not ever follow in her way's, as you are your own person and the excuse never is an excuse, do as you would do" NOT AS OTHER"S DO""

Fabreze (or however it's spelled) seems to help in most cases. I have friends that smoke in their homes. Some use Fabreze on everything, others use nothing. You can certainly tell the difference. Small bowls of white vinegar in each room will also help absorb the smoke odor.

Tell your selfish mother that you are allergic to it. It's gonna take some selfish lies to wake up a selfish mother. Seriously. Smokers are some of the most ignorant, nasty people and they often dont care. It takes an exaggeration to wake them up. If she still doesnt care, you are almost 18 and there is nothing wrong with realizing that your mother cares more about her habit than she does of your health. Everyone knows second hand smoke may lead to cancer. Where will your mother be when you are 35, 2 kids who need you, and you end up with lung cancer even though you never smoked? Guess grandmom can kill your babies lungs while you go for chemo. The point is, its a selfish habit that kills smokers and non-smokers.

Ok, this is the perfect example of reverse logic. People tend to gain weight when they try to stop smoking, so starting to smoke should make me lose weight. I hope this is a joke, otherwise keep smoking!
