My mom had quit for a few years and started up again. The apartment building is completely non-smoking and is located above a medical office. She smoked so much that the office below complained of the smell coming through the vents. The landlord has threatened eviction and neighbors have complained.
So about a year ago I got her to switch to a vape inside. She did well with that for the most part. Well the neighbors who were the biggest complainers moved out this week and yesterday she started up smoking like a chimney! The caregiver is a non smoker and was extremely upset. Sent me multiple texts yesterday that she can’t be around the smoke etc etc. I’ve asked/begged mom to stop smoking inside/go outside/use the vape instead etc and she says it’s fine because she opened the window. (with the heat blasting because she was cold smh).
She also says she doesn’t care if caregiver doesn’t like it and if she quits oh well.
I am beyond upset about this and am dreading the inevitable call from the landlord.
I don’t know what to do to get her to stop smoking inside because almost everything is non-smoking now, I’m some places even vaping is not allowed.
One of the neighbors complaints was that vaping was just as bad and was even pushing landlord to make that not allowed in the building as well.
