    This Drives Me Batty

    It infuriates me to no end when I see parents smoking with their kid(s) in the car.  And let me tell you, I'm a smoker AND a parent, but I don't think it's okay to subject your kids to your rotten habit.  I know that smoking is bad for me, and I don't care if you...

    Why?

    I'm a mum and used to be a smoker. I never ever smoked in the car when my daughter's in it too, I couldn't make myself. I want her to be healthy and not get her lungs full of my second hand smoke! It's not difficult to find somewhere to stop when you need one (and even though she...

    When people near me smoke, I cough very loudly, except when its the boss. I don't want that second hand smoke thing. I don't want the smell on my clothes either.
