    Ironic

    Almost all my friends smoke, I never say anything about it, I just try stand in a direction in which the smoke doesn't go into my face... It's a major turn off, especially when girl exhales a puff of that stuff up your nose during a conversation! Even after if they haven't smoked...

    It Makes Me Sick

    I hate when I'm out and some moron is standing outside the shops as i'm going in/coming out and blows smoke in my face. All I can think of is "thanks, give me lung cancer, I want it" *sarcasm* I feel like turning around and shoving the damn thing down the persons throat...

    I seriously can't deal anymore.

    My father smokes cigars and cigarettes. The house stinks, his clothes, and it gets on me. How the hell is he still trying to quit after all these years? He doesn't always go outside to smoke. He leaves cigarette butts all over. I'm tired of it. I don't want to catch that second...

    Smoking

    I could never stand the smell of cigarettes nor cigars.  I do smoke a pipe.  Pipe smoke has a "flavorable" smell to it ---- most people like it. It's like smelling a cake baking in the oven. That's because of the ingredients in pipe tobacco. "Cherry, etc".However, for those who...

    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.

    Everything I have to go buy groceries, there's always a person or two smoking disgusting cigarettes and blowing that nasty second-hand smoke my way. Look, I know they don't care much about their own health but I care about mine. The smell is revolting. I can't understand how it...

    It's Awful

    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.

    Dated a girl who smoked...like kissing an ash tray. While she was smoking hot, and we got along incredibly, it had to end over the smoke.

    My dad smokes so I've always been around it.

    I want the house to smell good and he'll light up a cigarette before he walks outside, and it infuriates me. I'm allergic to the smoke so it just makes me cough anytime I'm around it... Hate the smell! :/

    It's gross. It's dreadful to be a non smoker

    and be surrounded by smokers and finally get to a smoke free environment and you can smell the cigarette smoke on you like you bathed in it. I usually take a shower after being around intense cigarette smoke. I don't wanna constantly smell that cancer.

    I Grew Up Around Cigarette Smoke

    I grew up around cigarette smoke, but I still cant stand the smell. Specially if I'm cooped up in a car, it will give me a really bad headache. I don't understand how people can actually like smoking, or chewing for that matter. Tobacco is just disgusting all around.

    Smokers Need To Learn Consideration

    I agree, I have a strong distaste for cigarette smoke. Firstly I found out a young age I am actually allergic to tobacco. Both parents are sadly smokers and whenever I even get a small wiff of the smoke it makes my nose run and my eyes start to itch. Not to mention the fact that...
