    I can't breathe when I smell it.

    I've actually turned this bad smell into a game I call "Who's smoking?" Whenever I'm in public, and I smell cigarette smoke, I look around to find the culprit. That's it lol and then I proceed to put my hands in my face or shirt (if I can) over my face and try to make it obvious...

    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...

    Never smoked, never will.

    Simply put, we all know the health risks of smoking. Thankfully more and more states are putting restrictions on where people smoke, causing less second hand smoke for those of us who are non-smokers. The smell of cigarettes just makes my throat and nose itch, if a smoker has to...

    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.

    My mom used to smoke ALL THE TIME.

    I know the smell WAY too well. She's quit now, which is good. She'll live a few more years than she would if she didn't.

    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 honestly makes me sick to my stomach,

    and if you think about all the chemicals that are in cigarettes I am surprised it doesnt make everyone sick. For example, they have mothballs in them, because what, you have moths in your stomach?

    Why is it okay to smoke at the entrance to

    public buildings? Do smokers think that everyone enjoys the smell of cigarettes just because they do? The smell makes me gag. And cigarette butts on the ground look so disgusting.

    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.

    immediately start coughing. I also hate people who think it's cool. Totally because getting lung cancer is cool. I don't understand people sometimes.

    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.

    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!
