Smelling cigarettes all the time, none around! #nqlu I am freaking out because I'm having "phantom" smells... Mainly cigarettes. I keep smelling them, but no one smokes here. I kept thinking my husband snuck one, but he has not, and he isn't lying to me
I: I can't diagnose the cause of these "phantom smells". On one hand, if you have problems with your sinuses if could cause a bad odor. I think you would have mentioned it, if you developed severe headaches after smelling this. Since you are having more than one type of aroma, I recommend that you have this evaluated. You could be experiencing olfactory hallucinations. It would be appropriate to see a neurologist to be assessed. ...Read more

Live in condo. Neighbors smoke. Furnace pulls air from outside. Smell cigarette smoke about once a day coming from furnace vent. How harmful to baby?
No harm: We humans are not that fragile (otherwise, we would have gone extinct long ago). A baby born today will grow up surrounded by trace amounts of industrial/chemical contaminants in the air, water, ground, food, etc. There is no useful way to identify these contaminants or what their effects are. Yet, kids grow up fine. Some companies do make HEPA air filters for heating and air conditioning systems. ...Read more

Does smoking herbal molasses through hookah harm you worse than cigarettes? Its the non-tobacco, non-nicotine herbal molasses.
Nobody knows: Because there are no studies. Any organic matter, when combusted (smoked), hookah or no hookah (the water does not purify anything, just cools it), turns into potentially carcinogenic aromatic hydrocarbons. Whether these are safer or worse than tobacco is simply not known. It is totally possible to live a wonderful and fulfilling life without smoking anything. I would suggest trying that. ...Read more
