How can you get rid of second hand smoke damage?

I know how you can get rid of first hand smoking by not having a single one for about 11 years, I think? Not sure! I can't really remember. But I know you can if you don't have one for several years. But I really want to know how to get rid of the damage from second smoke. My parents have smoked around me since I was born. I am 13 years old now, and they still smoke by me. They even smoke with me in the car.

there is no way of getting rid of the damage that has already happened
but you could prevent further damage by staying away from smokers

The problem is you've been exposed since you were little and the developmental years of youth are very important years to maintain good health. Developing bodies are more susceptible to damage. Try to speak sense to your parents about the damage they're causing you. If they don't listen do your best to stay away and ventilate the rooms as much as possible. Also try to eat as healthy as possible such as fruits vegetables and reduce eating processed foods (especially ones with nitrites and preservatives). The more healthy you live, the more you can combat the unhealthy things you're exposed to. I would also mention it to your doctor on your next visit and hopefully the doctor will speak to your parents about the danger they're putting you in.

nothing you can do about the past just stay away from smokers
second hand smoking is said to be worse because you are intaking it with no filter while smokers do have a filter and they are also able to blow some of the smoke out
be careful tobacco is a number one killer

Back in the mid-1990s I interviewed for a job with the American Lung Association. During the interview, the woman tole me that lungs are self-rejuvenating. She explained that it is NEVER too late to undo damage. Don't smoke, and keep away from situations with smoke/smokers/smoking/exhaust/etc. Please know that I didn't verify this at the time because I don't smoke. I've since heard and read about that same claim. However, I have no idea if it is true or not, and it WAS almost 20 years ago. Still, might give you piece of mind if what she said is true!

I don't know if the Science out about 2nd hand smoke yet or not. It is too bad. You should really ask or communicate to your parents in a respectful way and let them know you are concerned. That would be the best way. It is too bad you are around those things.

Carry some lollipops, when they reach for a smoke stick a lollipop in their mouths. they also sell air purifiers you could put in your room, and when you clean the filter make sure you show them all the nasty stuff they are making you breath.
