    Only Because..

    I just don't like these people

    and I never keep quiet about it. The cigarette smoke is pervasive, invasive and downright aggressive. They rarely ask permission to do it as if it were some divine right that MUST not be questioned and when I do ask them to please not smoke in my presence they often treat me as...

    Most of my friends and all of my family smoke. Some of them have finally stopped letting their smoke come my way. I hate the smell and I've tried smoking and it just tasted gross. I had to go brush my teeth after one puff and it made me cough a lot.

    Bitter Poison

    I HATE it when my roommate smokes when I'm in the room. That is one of the worst smelss to me. I'll NEVER understand how people take that in firsthand. When I'm on the computer, he's behind me on the sofa smoking. In the morning, it's one right after the other. He's trying to...

    In the "I hate second hand smoke"experience

    section I wrote about how much I despose second hand smoke and I said it in the Experience section where the title leaves no room for interpretation. You enter if you have an aligned attitude. Yet, all the same, some one attacked me. Now, I am not contravening EP guidelines...

    Ever since I was a child I've had adults smoke

    around me all the time. I used to like the smell but now I'm fed up with it, especially when I see that the smoker is not considerate of the people around them. This smell is nostalgic when I take in wafts but not a whole cloud of it coming my way. That's annoying.
