Me and my bearded dragon have recently moved back in with my mom, my bearded dragon has just now gotten used to her new environment. But my mom smokes cigarettes in the house, I keep my door shut 24/7 so it’s not going directly to her but the smell does go everywhere. My baby just got over a respiratory infection and she’s starting to show signs of it again. I can’t think of anything else that would be causing her to get sick. I don’t know what to do. Is there something else that might be causes her to get sick besides that bc moving out isn’t an option right now but I’m not gonna let her be sick all the time if that’s what it’s from :(

Not ideal.

The smell of smoke will result in heightened stress for your dragon.

I think it would be worth investing in an air purifier to try to remove the smoke particles from the air in the house if she insists on smoking indoors.

Yeah a good air purifier with a hepa filter in the room should help clear the air up quite a bit. I have this one in my bedroom (not for smoke but for allergens) and it works very well At the least I would run a fan to try to circulate and ventilate air as much as possible. If the tank isn't near your mom while she's smoking I think the risk will be minimized.
