    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.

    I definitely have a sharper sense of smell than most people. There use to be a big commercial bakery down the street from where I worked, and at certain times the smell of fresh bread was enough to make me want to drool. Other people I worked with said they didn't notice it! That, at least, was a heavenly smell. I can also smell cigarette smell from a long way, and alcohol too, no matter how many breath mints someone might pop trying to mask the smell.

    did you know that our olfactory bulb is about the size of a postage stamp? a bloodhound's is about the size of a handkerchief.

    Being a former smoker for 12 years, I love the smell of cigarette smoke as long as it's not being blown in my face. I'll still sneak a drag once in a while if I'm drinking and there's a cigarette near me, but only one or two before it starts to hurt my legs really bad. I don't think I can handle my house smelling like cigarette smoke anymore though. I'm just too over it to deal with that.

    Cali where is the couch he slept on? Maybe the smell is coming from there?

    the couch is pretty far away and it's leather, so it wasn't that and plus, i could smell it in my sheets. i didn't even think when i wore that same hoodie i wore in his car to sleep because i was cold. i'm still surprised how long it clung and how strong it smelled. it's gone now, sheets washed. but still, i can't believe how much it bothered me since i never had that much sensitivity to it for that long and such small contact. the hoodie didn't bother me to sleep that night, i didn't even smell the smoke on it!i dunno, but i'm glad it's gone and i know that my nose is a bit tweaked.
