  1. To form an addiction, you need direct repeated use of nicotine, and if you do not smoke, then accordingly you are not an addict.

    However, a strong desire to smoke while being near smokers may arise, but for other reasons: the desire not to differ from others, for example, and not direct exposure to tobacco smoke.

    Such a desire can push you to start smoking and then you will fall into dependence, and immediately into chemical ( from nicotine) and psychological ( the desire to be “like everyone else”).

    It should be remembered that being near smokers, especially frequent ones, is a variant of passive smoking and, as a result, adversely affects your body. Try to avoid such places.

    And be healthy!

  2. No, it can't. The concentration of substances in the air of even a heavily smoky room (an airport smoking room, for example) is not enough to form a chemical dependence, although it is harmful to be in such a room – this is just a case of “passive smoking”. And if you just stay near smokers – then even the notorious “harm from secondhand smoke”, which is so fond of pedaling those who do not like the smell of smoke, will not be.

  3. Can…

    You can give at least two answers to almost any question. A question that starts with “can…” can always be answered with “can”. It's all about the probability of this “maybe”.

    Can a non-smoker develop an addiction, a strong desire to smoke, just from being around smokers often?

    There are several questions here, one of which is-what is the motivation of a non-smoker not to smoke? Does he feel sorry for money, for example?

    Another question is: what does it mean to be around smokers frequently? Is it fishing, where everyone smokes in the immediate vicinity or a person works in the office and his colleagues go to smoke for 15 minutes every 15 minutes, and he has to work all this time (which is somewhat offensive)? Agree, the situation can be different.

    In my experience, I will say that if there is a persistent reluctance to smoke, then no people and, even, “frequent presence near smokers” can create conditions for addiction. Moreover, to encourage a “strong desire” to smoke. Neither the idle employees, nor the almost universal environment of smoking people in the army, did not affect my persistent aversion to cigarettes.�

    I fully admit that there may be a situation when a non-smoker does not want to be a white crow and gives up the slack. Well, what can I do?.. it's full of people who are being led on weakly. Apparently, such leading people are weaklings. Or unprincipled, but that's another story… history of lack of motivation not to smoke.

  4. For a non-smoker, tobacco smell and smoke are unpleasant. (Cigarette; cigar smell can sometimes be interesting). Being in the vicinity of smokers removes this natural rejection – you just get used to the, sorry, suffocating stench. Plus, a person learns from a smoker by sight: repeated actions by someone form an unconscious desire to try the same thing (as we wrote above, this is expressed in unexpected dreams, at first). This is due to the mechanism of sympathy, thanks to which we generally learn something (repeated actions in front of our eyes cause us to want to know the same feelings, “how it feels”). So, the impact of smokers on a non-smoker is corrupting. It may well cause a desire to smoke, and the victim will find nicotine addiction by herself, having tried it. It's like dealing in alcohol:” we just give you vodka to drink, and you become alcoholics yourself”, yeah.
