In brief: Possible

Exposure to second hand smoke can lead to harmful effects such as heart and lung disease.

In brief: Possibly

You didn't mention if you also have coronary disease or hypertension.
In general, exposure to second hand smoke is not healthy for anyone. Protect your investment in your health, and avoid smoky areas.
