One of my friend is a smoker and I have a problem breathing in burning tobacco air; I hardly visit her because of this. Have any tips?

Meet her at a public place where they don't allow smoking, or an outdoor market where you can visit outside. If at her house, just casually open the door or window saying you're feeling stuffy or hot. You could help guide your friend away from smoking by letting her know you are worried about her health. See if she's interested in quitting, then be there as a friend to help her kick the habit by doing healthy/distracting activities together.

Thank You.
I have tried this in the past but she has such a young spirit about her that she (sneaks drags here& there; or will take one drag&shuts them off... As she calls it<snubbing them out along side the bricks of a building> She seems to not have grown out of the Lust for them)
I was even hoping she'd consider buying the electric cigarets; those seem to help people stop smoking; though they wanted to...
I've mentioned the health concern & even passed on advice that was sent her way via a neighbor who has to be on Oxygen due to emphysema, no change. I'm now distancing myself where I'm beginning to think we won't have a friendship much longer & just be acquaintances. It's pretty bad considering My daughter will most likely be her Daughter in Law within the next few years. Thank You again*

Ask her to stop, and if she says no, tell her the reason why you asked.
