: How do you say this in English: when you want to say the air generated from the cigarette? (not the one you puff out from mouth). Do you say "smoke","puff", or what?
: when you want to express that you smell something that's really stinking and you use your thumb and index finger to squeeze the wings of your nose, what is the correct verb used? should I say "plug", "squeeze", or what?
: Thank you for your help.

smoke
pinch
Example: The smoke from Brunhilde's cigarette smelled so bad that people for miles around pinched their noses.
