This means that you are unknowingly smoking even if you are not smoking.
According to doctors, there are 7,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, 50 of which can cause cancer. So if you come in contact with a smoker, these chemicals also enter your body and stay longer.

Your battle is yet to come. You too, as an intelligent citizen, should take part in this battle. If you smoke, try to quit. If you are a non-addict, encourage others to give up the habit, even if you can't explain it to strangers, you can certainly explain it to acquaintances.
