Well, you may have grown up with all of the health warnings about smoking, not everybody stops smoking just because of them. If they did, cigarettes and cannabis would never be sold. Now, we have cannabis legalization in a lot of the states across the US, and cigarettes are illegal everywhere – if expensive.
Most people who smoke socially choose to go outside. This is a far cry from the 90s when you used to have a smoking and a non-smoking section in a restaurant. After all, how does the smoke know where the smoking and non-smoking sections are? If you are currently smoking in the house, you might be wondering why people choose to smoke outside, and while they can use smoke odor eliminator spray, there are plenty of reasons people do it. Let’s take a look at those reasons below to help you understand why you should move outside when you are smoking.
- It doesn’t smell very nice. The only thing that smells worse than trash in the pantry is smoking. It’s not just that it bothers other people who don’t smoke, but it can make the entire house, your clothes, the carpets, the furniture – you guessed it – everything stinks. It’s said that it can be confused with gross things like ammonia or cat urine if you’re smoking weed, and you really don’t want your landlords smelling that when they come to visit.
- It can stain the walls. Smoking indoors can actually stay on the walls of the house. There’s nothing worse than seeing yellow ceilings and yellow wallpaper, and often you won’t even notice it until you move into a new place or you compare pictures from when you moved in to now. Cannabis and cigarette smoke can be very difficult to get off the walls which means that every few years you’ll be re-painting or re-wallpapering the walls. It can be very hard to clean up without a tonne of elbow work and degreasers, and most people won’t even bother.
- It affects other people. Second and third-hand smoke can impact others, not in a healthy way. Smoke residue from cannabis is said to be in Tiley safe, but it’s not necessarily true. We also know that cigarette smoke can cause passive smoking diseases and issues in others. It can also irritate the lungs and eyes, and make your kids – if they live there – smell like cigarettes or weed wherever they go. If it is something that you enjoy doing but it affects other people, take it outside and make a difference to everybody else.
- It’s a healthier option. If you are inhaling cigarettes or cannabis inside the house, you need some fresh air to help you out. Lingering smells don’t contain enough to help the buzz or make you feel good, it just makes the house smell bad. Going outside means that you can set up a chat and a space for your ashtray and smoke happily while you’re watching the moon and the stars.
