In brief: Hurting your family

And neighbors. You are exposing non-smokers to second hand smoke, which can actually even affect people who live in other apartments in your building, and exposing smokers to even more smoke (as you are being exposed to also by your smoking neighbors).
If children are exposed, there is increased asthma, sinus infections, pneumonia. Second hand smoke also causes cancer, bronchitis & heart disease.
