    I don't like the smell of cigarett

    or any smoke.. I can still feel the smell on my nose in the couple hours once I smell them. even if the smell is long gone.

    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.

    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 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.

    I think it should be a law

    that parents can't smoke in the car or house with a child under the age of 18. Why is it fair that poor kids have to breathe second hand smoke and risk getting lung cancer when they're older because an adult is too selfish doing their own filthy habit? The kids can't escape and...

    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 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.

    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 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!

    Someone tossed a lit cig out of the car in

    front of me and it got stuck in my air intake. I swear one of these days I will find a way to take out every smoker on earth. Mad science to end smoking!

    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...

    It is so gross smelling

    and gives me headaches. Since I have asthma it's even worse, once I smell it I start coughing a lot and then decide to go inside. My dad used to smoke, it concerned me, he has stopped and I'm happy he did, BTW don't try this at home but I sprayed him with water every time he...

    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.

    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...

    until I came to a Christian college where it is not permitted whatsoever. Have to say, it was a breath of fresh air... literally! Can't even stand 3rd hand smoke, and thankfully my immediate family (all of whom smoke, making me the oddball) has taken to smoking outside, making...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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.
