It Is Really Killing Me... It is a House Of 5 And 3 Of Them Smoke And They Smoke Every 5 Minutes Literally... Help Me Please

Symptoms:  Wheezing, Coughing, Sore Throat , Very Hard To Breath

A:   Asthma can be really aggravated with smoke and yes i understand your predicament here. All i can suggest is if you cannot change the place of residence or the room , then you may buy yourself a N95 face mask , that should help you tremendously keeping the smoke out. If its not available then you can wet a cloth and tie it across your nose and mouth to avoid the fumes entering the respiratory system.
Else , the best way would be to persuade them to smoke outside or at one particular rom only and keep the house well ventilated.
I hope i have answered your query,
