Ok first let me clear this up, I have no probelm with people that smoke. Thats your life and your decision, but I hate when people smoke around me! I hate going to dinner and tasting smoke! Im sick of it!
My dad is the worst. He always smokes in front of my daughter and I, and up until now, I have put up with it. He came over the other day and took my DD and I to lunch. He sat in the smoking section, even though I ask him if we could sit in non smoking, and when I was having an asmatha attack, he blew it in my face! Not to mention Im 9 months pregnant. And yes, I was thankful for the lunch that he bought me, that wasn't the point.
How, after 20 years of my life, do I tell my dad that Im not going to put up with his smoking in front of me? How do I tell him in a nice way that I refuse to go anywhere with him if he is going to be smoking? And how do I tell him my kids won't be coming to his house alone?
I need advice

Since you have already asked several times in a polite manner, I would say to put your foot down. "Dad, this is not acceptable to me anymore". Etc. End of conversation. If he doesn't respect that, then thats his problem. Whether smoking caused asthma for you or not is not the point and I would avoid mentioning it again since he seems to believe that he knows more than Dr.s do. The point is that you don't want to be around cigarette smoke, so don't be around it.

Next question overall
Is it bad side-effects after getting your tubes tied?
