Smoking is Evil

I using a blog to vent again, so here it goes.
I grew up around smokers all my life. My parents did it, anyone they dated smoked, friends of theirs smoked, family members, and so on. I had to deal with it. I usually just ignored it since I was used to it. Two years ago though I moved to where I live now, New York. My mom is my only family who moved with me from our previous state, Arizona. We moved in with my grandparents to save money, and they don't allow smoking. My mom who moved about two months before since I had to finish the school year, quit cold turkey when she came here. She hasn't smoked a cigarette for two years.
Since she quit and I haven't been around the smoke constantly for two years, I can now easily smell the smoke and being around it is worse than it was before. The smell is disgusting and the smoke is more choking. In December my mom started dating a guy, they became serious, and she moved in with him. She said she wouldn't date a smoker, but she made an exception for him so she started off with electronic cigarettes, which despite me not liking the idea, I allowed them due to the lack of smoke and nicotine. Now though she's back to smoking real cigarettes. She says she going to quit but she's moving in with my other grandmother who smokes, because she broke up with her boyfriend. Either way she is living with a smoker which increases the temptation.
To add on to the problem she has lost a lot of weight recently, and smoking causes weight loss. She is sick and doesn't take it seriously that she needs to go to the doctor. She weighs five more pounds than me last we checked, with the smoking she'll probably weigh less than me.
I really hate cigarettes, and drugs in general. I've never tried smoking or any drug. The only drugs that I have ingested into my system are medical ones that I needed. My mom smoking after two years of being clean really sickens me. Lately all she does is make me depressed when all I wish I could do is smile.
