    It makes me physically I'll in many aspects.

    Being in the same room with smokers makes my throat hurt, my ears and nose itch, my eyes water and my lungs and throat tighten up. I'm obviously allergic so why don't people have respect and stop smoking around me??!!! It makes me sick for days! Smokers have no rights anymore so...

    Wafting Through The Air...a Bit Of A Rant

    I generally try not to write about things I don't like. I'd rather put my energy into the things that are good. But it seems like I've been assailed by cigarette smoke today! Twice when leaving businesses I had to walk through a smokey haze. When I got home the neighbors and...

    For my whole life I have seen my mother smoke

    all the time, and whenever I happen to stumble upon her "relaxing time," I gag on the horrid smell of cigarettes wafting in the air. I can't imagine myself smoking. Not only it damages your health, but it is a psychological addiction. I wish tobacco never existed.

    It's not that I can't stand the smell of it,

    it's more like I'm allergic to it where my throat starts to itch and my eyes get red and puffy. More irritating if anything. It look my parents the first 12 years of my life to figure out why I had these symptoms while at home...after that my Dad started to smoke outside the...

    Both of my parents still haven't quit.

    I hate it so much. I can't stop myself from thinking I'm breathing in cancer. I'm so glad they don't do it in the house anymore, but I still endure it in the car and sometimes smell it through my windows when they do it outside on a windier day. It's kind of like slow torture...

    I can't stand it when someone flicks a

    cigarette butt out at my car. Especially in the dark when I get this big glowing streak at my window. I wish I had a huge giant stuffed fake cigarette butt to throwback. If I can I'll nail them with the washers before they roll the window back up.

    I visited a friend in Virginia this summer.

    She smokes, so her house smells like smoke. I had to stay at her house. It took me two days to get used to the smell; one of which I spent feeling nauseous...I think that sums up how I feel about cigarette smoke.

    I'm a non-smoker and

    whenever I enhale other people's smoke, I get so disgusted. I'm basically second-hand smoking. I had relatives who used to smoke around me and I would get so mad because I was eating breakfast. They needed to go outside.

    I really don't understand how people can smoke.

    The smell is gross. I usually leave the area where people are smoking because if I don't, I get nauseous. Marijuana smoke is even worst. Yuck!

    Though I was a chain smoker at a point of time

    in my life, today I can't stand the smell of it while standing near a smoker after his puff. At the same time I love to breath the direct smell of a smoke puffed out. A passive smoking. After 10 years of quitting it, I still miss it. Won't have never quit it if it won't have...

    The smell of smoke itself is not bad.

    But when people start to smell of nicotine and cinders it becomes a problem.

    Eww Smoke

    This is why I love the winter time, because then I have an excuse to wear a scarf and whenever I pass a smoker or a fire pit I can just put my scarf over my nose and it is much better. Also I hang out with friends who smoke and my scarf is also quite helpful in those situations.

    It disgusts me. Both my parents smoked even

    before I was born and didn't stop when I was in my moms belly so I'm stuck with life long breathing problems. Neither one of my parents have made an effort to stop either, and that's what bothers me the most. They know they're hurting my lungs, and they couldn't care less.

    and it puts me in a bad mood. I don't know why people smoke.. they must have a death and debt wish. It's expensive and it's gross.. and it slowly kills.

    I don't know how anyone can smoke. Just the smell is awful. When people try to cover it up, it's still there, and smells even worse.

    Since I quit smoking the smell of it makes me

    quite ill. I wonder how I smelled before and think how awful it must have been to those around me who were sensitive to smell. I did always try to be conscious of my smoking when I was a smoker and now I am glad. I don't expect others to change for me but I am certainly glad I...

    Everybody in my family used to smoke,

    I remember being little and sitting in the kitchen talking with smoke blowing in my face, but I was used to it and not in like a 'child abuse' kind of way. But then my parents quit smoking or go outside on the porch, so when I smell it I don't have that tolerance like when I...

    It's just awful. My parents

    both smoked (my dad quit a long time ago thank God) but I never really got used to it. They never smoked in the house because I have bad asthma. Still to this day it makes me cringe. My dad loves the smell, I guess cause it he was a smoker for so long. Ew.
