Best Answer

Second hand smoke people in different ways, if they are around a person that smokes everyday then that isn't good because believe it or not people that inhale second hand smoke can also die or get lung cancer. Also if you second hand smoke you can still have tar in your lungs but not as much as a regular smoker has.

Hope that helped!! :) :)
