Convincing other people
How do I convince other people living in my house to stick to the promise?
Discuss with them how important it is to protect your family’s health by limiting their exposure to tobacco smoke. If people do want to continue to smoke, ask them to do it outside.
Will I upset visitors if I ask them not to smoke in my house and/or car?
Explain that tobacco smoke is harmful, particularly to children. Good friends and family will understand and support you.
Advice for non–smokers
You have a right to protect your health and the health of your family. It is perfectly reasonable to ask people to stop smoking around you and to ask visitors to your home to smoke outside.
