    It's disgusting. Whenever I'm around

    or walk past smokers, I always have to get away because I can't stand the smell of the smoke. It smells so nasty.

    I hate it when someone is smoking

    and they blow the smoke right into your path while your walking. or what I hate just as much they blow the smoke away from you, but then the wind blows it back into your face. it just makes me sick, and I get nauseas and I start gagging.

    I detest my father for smoking

    when my brother and I are in the vehicle. It's disgusting being forced to inhale that toxic secondhand smoke. Opening a window doesn't even help. Gross.

    I was a heavy smoker

    when I met the woman who was to become my wife. I smoked more than two packs of Gauloises (*strong* French brand) a day and had been smoking for 20 years. My wife had been a heavy smoker too, but had stopped. So when she got pregnant with our first, I stopped smoking in her...

    I understand its a free country

    and if someone wants to smoke that's there choice although people should be considerate of others around them who have to smell that cigarette smoke. The smell lingers and seeps through my clothes.

    This has got to be the worst scent people can

    force you to smell. people smoking in the street and when you want to enjoy the fresh air you smell this crap.

    I can't stand means 0% tolerance.

    It suffocates inside. I have had strong urge to utter, every time I encounter any smoker, 'Please, don't.' I feel bad that a smoker whether intentionally or unintentionally is slow poisoning him/herself.

    I used to be a smoker

    for 14 years!! I found out I was pregnant with my first and quit cold turkey, just like that. It's been four years, two more kids and A LOT of stress later and I am so proud to be cigarette free still!

    My parents used to smoke about 2-3 packs of

    cigarettes a day. When I was in grade school, my classmates even told me my clothes always smelled like cigarette smoke. It was the most embarrassing thing. When I told my parents, my Mom quit smoking cold turkey, and my Dad promised to only smoke outside and never around me...

    Raised on a heavy smoking household - often

    where it was too thick to breathe. Went on to lead to my dad's death of lung cancer. Horrible way to go! Just opposed to everything related to smoking. We deserve the right to breathe clean air!

    I absolutely hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

    It is so disgusting when I go out of a restaurant or the grocery store and smell smoke the moment I step out the door. People that smoke have no respect for those that dont. I think people the wait till they get further out for they will start smoking but nope they don't care. I...

    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...

    I hate these vapor things to me they are just

    as bad as smoking a cigarette, I don't like breathing in a thick cloud of vapor stuff after someone's just puffed it into the air it's annoying to me walking into threw a cloud of what not and then inhale it.

    and grandparents that smoked. vivid memories of going somewhere with em or a long trip, all hotboxing it up in the car...it was hell. I'd be in the back seat about choking, and thinking "do i dare crack the window? I need air...I don't care I'm doing it" then an abrupt " shut...

    Many years ago, before the laws were changed,

    I had to share an internal office with a smoker who smoked at their desk. The room would be full of cigarette smoke and I would often feel physically sick. To this day just a slight whiff of cigarette smoke will make me want to gag. I feel so sorry for those who still have to...

    It's absolutely vile,

    it's really awful because my parents smoke, and no matter what I do, how many doors I close, perfumes I spray, it still finds its way on my clothes, and it overrides the other scents I try to put on. Every time I go downstairs it makes me feel queasy breathing all that in. I...

    I have asthma and eczema

    so being surrounded by cigarette smoke is not a good thing. Even if I did not have these medical problems, I still hate the smell. It makes me sick to my stomach.

    It's nasty. Makes me feel nauseas

    and just brings back horrible memories of growing up. My little brother has asthma from second hand smoking. I don't give a damn if you smoke, just smoke where there aren't people, or children, or animals.

    I have asthma and my mom smokes.

    It's horrible. I can't even get close to her while she's smoking. She's nice and goes outside too. I have many people in my family that smoke. I always hated it.
