It may be an uncomfortable topic for those who have found themselves addicted to nicotine, but it’s one that should be addressed.
Smoking indoors causes terrible air pollution.
The smell of tobacco, the chemicals and even the nicotine itself has a tendency to permeate the surrounding area that the smoker occupies. It is not only affecting the lungs of the smoker but it is also affecting those around him or her. Environmental tobacco smoke can lead to various diseases and early death. The smoke hangs around for hours afterwards floating in the air ready to enter the air passages of anyone in the vicinity. At the very least, the effects should be mitigated by smoking outside in open air, Not that that’s much better for the smoker himself, but at least he would be protecting the other residents of his home. However, if someone lives alone and decides they want to smoke in their house, (because it’s their house, darn it!) A more advanced air filter will at least mitigate the pollutants caused by smoking. A HEPA air filter in particular will be the most effective at trapping tobacco smoke. HEPA air filters have the unique ability to catch both the bigger stuff like dirt dust in hair and the more fine-particle pollutants that may be lurking. That’s why they’re also effective for people who have a whole lot of pets who shed dander all the time. Bottom line is, smoking is not good for anyone or anything, but there are steps to take to deal with the air pollution that it causes.
