How close do you have to be to someone smoking to catch secondhand smoke?

Im pregnant and im not sure how far you have to be from a smoker to keep from getting the secondhand smoke.

Close enough to inhale the smoke. You should stay at least 15 feet from someone smoking, or just avoid them all together. Or do what my mom did when she was pregnant with me and just smoke even though you're carrying a baby.

That depends on where you are. Say you are outside and you are close to, but up wind from a smoker, it may not be the slightest problem.

Cigarette smoke can be diffused in the air for long distances. Second hand smoke is a mixture of two forms of smoke that can come from burning tobacco. It is also called environmental tobacco smoke.
