ok so i live with my sister who is a smoker and well im not we live in an one bedroom apartment and i sleep on the couch while her and my niece sleep in the room. i ask her every day to either go out on to the deck or by a window she says she will. i dont mind that she smokes but i hate that she has no consideration for me. she knows that i have breathing problems. i judt cant stand it any more she says she will go in into an other room but every day she sit were i sleep and lights up. it get so bad that i go in to coughing fit to the point that i cant breath or gag till i throw up i cant take much more now that i have an infection in my lungs

If she doesn't cooperate/respect your needs.. there is nothing you can do where she would listen. However you could do something for yourself.. like a mask or something like air cleaners ion generators local to you like within few feet. They will remove all smoke including bacteria. Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Ionic-Pro-CABR1-Mini-Purifier/dp/B000B1R9IY/ref=pd_sim_hi_3 cost isn't that bad...
Yeah there is nothing you can do to make her change... unfortunately.
I mean she knows she is killing herself slowly including everyone around her.. and she doesn't care so.. what can you do? not much... sorry.

How about give her some of her own medicine? Any smell you could use to overpower her smoking scent? Maybe start wearing a LOT of perfume or using scents she just doesn't like until she gets the picture.
In the meanwhile, I'm with 'Anon' - do something for yourself, since it sounds like she's doing real harm to you. They say second-hand smoke can be worse than actual smoking, since you get the smoke unfiltered.
