  • unfortunately if he pays rent i don't think you can do anything. that is EXTREMELY inconsiderate on his part though. Why don't your so say something to him. when it's guy to guy talk it's not nagging.

  • Its simple. I have roommate issues too. You just have to tell him. Either he puts on a coat and goes outside or he quits smoking. Its your babies health. I cant say a whole lot i am preg and i am smoking. I am working on quitting cause i feel guilty when i light up. I dont blame you. And your situation sounds like mine. lol roommate drives me up the wall and cant move for financial reasons either. You have to put your foot down. If he gets mad he gets mad. It has to be that way. Your baby is more important than his nicotine habit. Just try to find a good way to put it. If you dont say anything now it will be too late and it will all build up and you will snap on him.

  • If he won't be a decent person and smoke outside, will he at least smoke next to a window with a box fan pointed outside? That should work pretty well to keep the smoke out of the house. If he is too inconsiderate to do even that, declare a smoke-free room, keep it well ventilated and sealed off from the rest of the house as well as possible, and workk on getting your own place.

  • I dunno girl. Maybe do your best to talk to this person...communication is always just that...a good thing. IF you do not get through to him at least try to settle with him by saying this AREA over here is a non smoking area. Maybe invest in one of those smoke eater things...dunno what its called. It's like a machine that breathes in the smoke and filters it in the home. But if you cant meet at the point you want to meet at, try to meet in the middle. If nothing else works, no matter what, the baby's health is more important that anything, walk maybe outside while he is smoking and get you and the soon to be born baby some fresh hair. Just my thoughts.

  • they are called ionic breeze. they are actually the greatest things ever. i had a friend that had a cat. i couldnt spend time in his house without getting sick. then he got one of those and i could go over there all the time. they also help with the smoke in the house. They will probably help everyone brethe better. They get rid of dust and everything. you just have to get the one with the pull out coil that just gets washed off and not one with a filter. That way you dont have to buy filters. you can get a cheap version of one at walmart. if nothing else you get one to put in the room that he smokes in
