I don't often come to GW for advice but I'm looking for every possible input on this one. When I first met my roommate almost 2 years ago just before he moved in I had talked to him about some ground rules. One of which was no smoking/drug use of any kind in the apartment and if you feel so compelled to do it, its done outside. He told me he didn't smoke or use drugs and even if he did it wouldn't be in the apartment. In other words, all parties were in agreement. This whole time there's never been any conflict between either of us, we've gotten along really well. Then after a year and a half of no drug use, about 3 months ago with out asking me he started smoking weed in his room. It was nearly every day for a week, but I didnt say anything to see if it was a one time thing. It wasnt so I said something to him. The smell of weed makes me nauseous, I cant stand it and I told him this. Without any fight he agreed to do it outside if he was to smoke. After that the issue was pretty much resolved and never brought up again until a few days ago when he came to me and said that he wont smoke outside anymore and feels he should be able to smoke inside regardless of what I think. We had a discussion about it and he doesn't want to budge on it. He says him smoking in his room is accommodating to me and going outside is accommodating too much. It doesn't sound like he even wants to cut back on the frequency and pretty much only agreed to not smoke if im having guests over. Our current compromise is that we can try it with him smoking in his room if he can try and cover the scent by keeping the smoke near a cracked/open window and using incense. I think he did that yesterday and while I couldn't smell any weed I did smell the incense. And while that doesn't smell bad its almost like sensory overload and equally nauseating. Plus it lingers and now the apartment smells like a head shop. Now after a couple days of this im already starting to feel trapped in my room. Its the only place where I can mostly escape any sort of unpleasant odor. His room is near the living room so going in there while he's smoking and it makes me want to gag. If he's really this stubborn I can only see this turning into a massive fight. I feel like now if I said something he would think I was being too picky and complaining too much. Am I in the wrong here, am I being too uptight, how should I handle this situation? it seems the only way im going to be comfortable is if he was at the least smoking outside/not at all. But the only way he's comfortable is if he smokes inside.
