Letter: Plagued by secondhand smoke
My dearest wish for a merry Christmas and happy New Year is that my neighbor would give up smoking, both for my health and hers. I am so sick of fighting secondhand smoke that comes into my living area every time I open my hall door and even comes in around the cracks of my door. It really makes me nauseous to get that smell all time. And if her friends visit, it is worse because they all smoke.
I live in an elderly housing area, and when I complained the person who runs the place said that they couldn’t “discriminate.” It’s funny because elderly housing facilities in other towns have prohibited smoking.
Aren’t we so lucky that they can’t do it here in Epsom? I go in the hallway every morning to get my paper and I’m ready to barf. Tell me, do I have any rights, or do the smokers have it all? At 78 years old, I hope I make to it 79! Anyone else with this problem?
