  • your body still reacts to the nicotine you breathe in and it can cause damage to your lungs. I doubt if you would have the cravings for the nicotine and tar like a first hand smoker would have. You could go to one of those anti smoking sites and see what they say since many have done extensive research on what smoking does to both first and second hand smoke recipients

  • the analogy to the coffee thing is inaccurate. In the smoking situation you actually take in the smoke and do get residual nicotine in your system. In the coffee situation he is the only person taking the caffeine in to his body. So disregard her nonsensical and invalid statement
