So my dad smokes out side but when he comes in he smells like smoke. Is that harmful or am I over reacting?

If you smell it enough it can be. What you are smelling is the 4000 chemicals in cigarets, it's called 3 hand smoking. If u smell for 10 years strait you can get lung cancer but if its only once in a while its not going to do Major damage

Hi , Until recently I thought that just the smell is harmless , but at my 'Stop Smoking Class I found out that cigarette smoke and the chemical fumes from cigarette smoke can stay in clothes and escape for as long as up to an hour after having the cigarette , you cant see these elements , but it is what you can smell .

If uou are breathing in the smoke, it is second hsnd smoking. I believe smelling is not harmful unless it is really strong. If you do breath in the smoke though, your lungs could be getting damaged

The actual smoke is harmful. Any smoke toxins getting in your lungs is harmful. But the actual tobacco smell is not harmful
