    Grrrr

    So I am a non smoker and have been all mi life, unless you count pot but I haven't smoked that in 5 years. But anyway, I can't stand when I am on break from work and decide "hey it's nice out I'll eat at the tables outside" and someone sits down next to where I am...

    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...

    Gross

    My mom smokes and I HATE it. I especially hate it when she does it around me. It stinks. And it makes me cough and sometimes I can't breathe. When I was younger my mom used to some out in the laundry room, around all the clean clothes, and that would make all my clothes...

    UGH!

    First of all, I despise ciggaretes and smoking. Second, your already endangering yourself, don't endanger others too! Second Hand smoke is so disgusting!   If you choose to smoke, don't make make others choose to smoke your smoke.

    It's Not Right

    What is the point for me not being smoking if every where around me I get smoke blown into my face? You try as hard as you can to have a healthy living be careful of what you’re eating, but then you realise you have asthma and all sort of disease because all your siblings...

    Cough Cough.

    It's bad enough smokers INTENTIONALLY poison their lungs at their own will, but do ya have to kill the rest of us? BABIES CAN DIE JUST SO YOU KNOW! And babies dying is just plain sick and wrong. And yes, smokers, you have been the cause of infant deaths. If you wanna...

    BARF, Barf..........................

    I hate 2nd hand smoke.  Quite a few years ago,  before it was against the law to smoke inside different places, I was in some kind of waiting room (can't remember what kind) well anywho,  a woman sitting next to me asked me if I minded if she smoked.  I said...

    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 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! >.<

    Stinky

    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...

    :(

    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.

    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...

    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...

    *Please Insert Title Here*

    I just want to express how I much hate secondhand smoke... It just really shows how selfish people can be for their own pleasures... Smokers just don't care about other people --secondhand smokers-- around them... Even the people around them die in front of them because of the...
