    Just a Note

    I really hate second hand smoke, just like everyone else. It's terrible, and I don't want anyone's tar and death particles in my lungs. But, my ex smoked, and for whatever reason, despite the fact that i hated the smoke (and hated the fact that she knew how bad it was for her...

    Hey, you guys tried using an air filter in your

    room? It seems to help me. My grandmother smokes cigs inside the house sometimes and I blast it.

    Stinky

    Emphysema

    When I was 15, I was fortunate enough to go the local Medical School for an evening of looking at two cadavers the med students were finished with.  One of the people was a lady who died of emphysema.  I got to hold her lung.  It was thin, black and smelled of...

    An Age Old Argument

    As a former smoker, I understand how annoying it is to have non-smokers making dirty faces at you and waving their hands around to clear your second-hand smoke. It used to make me so mad to see people acting that way! But now that I am a non-smoker, I can easily relate to those...

    Known Enough Smokers...

    I know and have known enough smokers to know that most of those who smoke themselves dislike second hand smoke. It in no way gives them what they get off of a ciagrette, it's just bad. So why are some people so rude about when and where they light up? Why are they ignoring...

    Care If I Die?

    'Mind if I smoke?" "Care if I die?"     At that time the anti-smoking Groups decided humour might work...I thought it was pretty funny.

    I have friends that smoke but they are respectful smokers and do not blow it on me. I am asthmatic plus I do not like my hair to smell like cigarettes so no I do not like second hand smoke.

    I Don't Want To Inhale Your Cigarette!

    It's gross and harms ME! Would YOU want ME doing something that hurts YOU? It's bad enough knowing I have to breathe the same air as you! At least try to keep it clean! >.<
