    Introduction: Passive smoking is the inhalation of smoke, called secondhand smoke (SHS), by persons other than the intended “active” smoker. It occurs when tobacco smoke permeates any environment, causing its inhalation by people within that environment. Materials and Methods: A survey was conducted among 100 Chennai populations. The questionnaire was distributed through the Google Forms. It contains about side effects of smoking. Results were collected from Google Forms and discussed. Results: The surveys proved that passive smoking is not only more prominent in adults but it also prominent to both children and obstetrics patients; this showed that the people are not aware. The participants are very well aware that passive smoking is spread through smell. They are also aware that the duration of exposure increases the intensity of passive smoking. Conclusion: From the survey by the response of the participants, it is clear that the participants are now aware what passive smoking is but are not aware of its side effects.
