    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...

    I'm Not One of 'them'......tg

    This Is A Strange But....
