so my in laws are heavy chain smokers. They smoke in the house, along with other family members, with windows closed and the gas fireplace blazing. So we literally bake in the smoke. Husband does not understand why I don't want to be in that environment. On xmas I limited it to an hour and wound up staying and hour and a half until I could not take it anymore and had to leave. Of course my allergies have been worse then ever while pregnant so the entire next day I was miserable. I was actually happy in a way though because he got to see how bad I was the next day. I couldn't breath, was all stuffy, my eyes burned and I sneezed all day. Of course it was an issue we didn't stay long and MIL asked us in front of everyone if we like my family better. I told her I just couldn't take the smoke anymore. She told me she tried to go in a different room than me (their house is not big at all) So of course it started a bickering match between my husband and I. His mentality on this is his parents smoked and raised 8 kids and they are all fine (with the exception of most of them with sinus issues (but they don't trace that back to second hand smoke).
so my question is how do I get him to see this is a major issue and has nothing to do with his family personally. It is a health concern of mine., and should be one of his also!!!
