I wanted to make this thread to see if anyone else has a problem like this. For the past 2 years or so, I have developed a phobia of sorts of cigarrette smoke. Anyone who smokes I cannot even be around and I find that if they touch me, I will have this urge to buy new clothing and shower for about an hour.
Now, I grew up in a household where everyone smokes and it never used to bother me. But now that I have moved out and am now living with my fiance, it only consumes me. It controls my every move in every day life. I bought some clothing from a store, while walking outside, I walked right next to a person smoking,right in the smoke, and went back and returned everything. Crazy , I know. Now, I know the smell couldnt have possibly gotten to my clothing. It was just a brief second. But in my mind it was all over me.
This is a very big prolem for me and I hope someone can point out addvice on what to do. Its now affecting my relationship with my fiance and family. My mom smokes and I have avoided her for almost 2 years because of my issue. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this and have any advice to me?? Thanks for reading.
