smoked recently? I went into a family member's room for a long conversation. They weren't smoking, and I didn't directly inhale any smoke, but they smoke in there almost constantly, and I hear that cigarette smoke can take days to leave a room. Could I possible have gotten some second hand smoke or something from this? Thank you.

You would need to be exposed to second hand smoke for a very long period of time - years - for damage to occur.  So while technically the answer is "yes" you probably got a little bit of second hand smoke, there is absolutely zero chance - zero - that it did any damage during the time you were in there.
