Just how bad is it? 2 Days ago when I went to my boss's house for dinner, he took out a cig and started to smoke and i was beside him. When i tried not to inhale his 2nd hand smoke but I still inhaled some of it. I read an article that says 30 mins of inhaling 2nd hand smoke can cause ur lungs to be identicial to a smoker's lung. How bad is 2nd hand smoke if I exposed it for 4-5 minutes?
2nd Hand smoke...
I don't think 4-5 minutes of exposure is going to have any lasting ill effects hon, relax!

ya, relax, especially if your not around second hand smoke all the time, your lungs have a way of healing, we breath so many other toxins everyday that a few minutes of 2nd hand smoke is nothing.

Your going to be fine... If you live in So Cal (during the summer) its like smoking 2 packs a day
If you were only around it for only a few minutes it's not going to hurt you. Now if you were around second handsmoke for hours and hours every day of every month of every year, then yes it would be harmful to your lungs. Don't worry, your lungs will be able to heal from being exposed to smoke for those few moments, you'll be alright.
