My Room-mate Abuses Me When I Tell Him To Smoke Outside?

Postby Mylo » Tue Oct 03, 2017 12:00 am

I'm a 19 year old in university. I live with 3 other guys. Two of them are nice guys. I don't mind them. But the third guy is a bit keeda. I mean, he seems okay and quiet most of the time. But sometimes, he becomes an evil guy.

I don't like his habit of smoking inside the room. he opens a window and smokes next to it but it makes no difference. The air just blows the smoke back in. Every time I come back to my room, the stink is prevalent.


I'm a distance runner. Its very annoying when I come back after a training run and want to relax and self-massage after a shower and the room is in a stinky state!!! I don't mind smoking or drinking guys but why do it inside the room?

It takes just 1 minute to walk outside and smoke!!

I tried advising him many many times to smoke outside but he won't listen. He says the smoke goes outside because the window is open. But he is a smoker!!! He cannot smell the stink which i can. He calls me an idiot and a cry baby because of this. Sometimes, I sleep at random places on campus because I hate the smell. Apart from this, the nicotine and other chemicals which is given out is taken in by me as well. I don't care if he wants to get lung cancer and die. but why make me also inhale this $hit? The rule is that smoking is not allowed inside campus buildings. But I don't want to tell the accommodation office and make this guy my enemy. As I said, he's a nice guy most of the time...we also used to offer mutual help with assignments...but sometimes just too keeda for me to handle!!

Takes seconds to get outside if you gang up and push him out the window! (I wouldn't advise you actually do that)

Get the 2 others and all go and complain about him, can anyone else see him smoking inside, if they can and you can get them to back you up, take them too.

He's the one in the wrong and needs to be shown that you can't just do as you please. You could also make a big deal of it by pretending to have a coughing fit and then lying on the floor quite still.

Try telling him you respect that he smokes, but he should respect your right not too! Also, point out that because you are a non-smoker, you are more sensitive to the smells from the cigarettes. Good luck! :)

You should not have put up with smoking in your own house, the rule against it is there for a reason.

Tell him he needs to respect you and not smoke inside or you're going to report him. If he continues, he's got no one to blame but himself.
