    smelling cigarette smoke for two days

    a friend of the family slept over to travel with my dad on a fishing trip, and he smokes. he never smoked in the house, but he brought in a shirt for me that stank like it, and ever since, i keep smelling it in my room and here and there throughout my house. i smell it near my bed especially even though i used febreze on my sheets and blanket plus used some air freshener. the shirt and the clothes i wore in his vehicle are in the hamper.

    there's no way there could be any smoke smells in my bed especially because he wasn't in my room except to hand me the shirt before i came out to go eat. the shirt was on my bed for a while, but like i said, there shouldn't be any smoke smell anymore, plus he left late wednesday night with my dad. but why do i still smell it? it's driving me nuts! i hate that smell! has anyone have this happen to them with strong smells? am i mentally making myself smell it because i'm all paranoid it didn't go away? i dunno, but it's very annoying!

      unless he sneak a few in the house somewhere, maybe he stashed a ashtray under to bed out of spite, open all days and windows for a few hours, and maybe it's a mental thing, hope you find it soon

        I had an overnight guest once back in the days when I was too much of a wimp to insist they smoke outside, and after they left the house stank for days. Even the curtains reeked. Air everything out as much as you can and buy some Febreeze or something and spray it liberally.

          I also hate that smell
          Have you washed your sheets and blankets? maybe that will help get rid of it

            Even with the house well ventilated it can take days before the cigarette smoke dissipates. Some smokers think they can hide the smell by opening a window.

              thats because us smokers can't smell the smoke

                no he definitely smoked outside and slept out on the couch, he'd never be disrespectful like that. i had the smoky t shirt on my bed for most of the day and a good part of the night, so that's why i think i have that smell...o i just remembered i was wearing the hoodie to bed because i was chilly and it was the same one that i wore in his car on the way to the restaurant. he smoked on the way there too. i never had this before though. maybe my body changed or something. my one ex's brother smoked in the house and they lived together, so everything stank, but i never had that lingering issue. maybe because it's my bed and my space that it bugs me more and i smell it.

                anyone else have a change in smell as their bodies change with sci? i think that's a part of why i smell it like i do.

                  If the stinky clothes are just chillin in your hamper the smell is still going to linger around. Bars here aren't smoke-free so immediately after a night out I start a load of laundry. I can't stand that smell!

                  I wouldn't think that smells & SCI have anything to do with each other. If you had any sort of brain injury then, yea?

                    well i know some people who can't smell at all since their injury, i just wonder if it's possible to have it heightened. i'd definitely wash everything, but the washer and dryer are in the basement and i can't get to them. the only washing i do is my cushion covers in my sink.

                      Well since I made ya laugh about my spider hunting, I got to tell you this story.

                      My boyfriend had been over at some friends house. I came home early and went to bed. When he climbed into bed that night, he reaked of cigarette smoke so bad when I rolled over it woke me up. I got the Febreeze and sprayed him two quick sprays. He kind of grunted and said "what the hell" while wiping the side of his face. Very quickly, I said "I sneezed" and didnt have time to cover my mouth, I'm sorry honey. He said "oh ok" and.....

                      He rolled over and went back to sleep.

                      The next morning he asked me what happened and I told him that I sneezed five times.....LOL

                      He smelled better but I did wash the whole bed the next morning......and opened all the windows.

                      Cigarette smoke stinks...wash your linens, it will go away.

                          Cali, I wonder if your sense of scent might have sharpened. I know mine has always been pretty sharp and lately it is even more keen. When anyone uses clorox to clean or whatever, I can feel it even take my breath away. Smoking also bothers me a lot and I can tell when there is someone smoking nearby without even seeing them. I also noticed that when Nick's dad would be drinking and attempting to hide the fact, I right off would pick the smell. Never thought others might have my problem and assumed that it was just me and my mom.

                          It does take time, btw, for the stink to go away. Oh, I remember that one time someone showed me how even the walls and things in the house do hold some of what is released when a person smokes. Hope that stench goes away soon for you.

                            when my mom left with us, my bio dad had the house and smoked in there, and the walls turned yellow. it was surprising to see how bad it was when a picture was moved. i noticed my smell was sharper but only with certain things. i can smell smoke on a person from across the room, but it was never like this.

                              So I guess it's not all in our minds and we are not mental eh? Wonder how many more have noticed that in themselves.
