    As An Ex Smoker...

    I'm possibly more tolerant of it than if I'd never smoked myself, but not in my house/car (or when I'm handling flammable liquids). The cost and inconvenience were among the reasons I gave it up.

    How Could I Hate?

    I was raised by a heavy smoking mom. All of her friends and many of my relatives smoked as well. Many others raised in a smoking enviornment turn against smokers and avoid having any smokers in their social circle. I don't understand this backlash. Even if I don't smoke I feel...
