    So my mom and all her friends smoke

    and my dad's coworkers smoke too. I'm always stuck around them. When I need air to play my clarinet, I don't have it. In pe we have to do a mile and a half, I just don't have the air for it, I feel like passing out. Or even the air anytime to even move. I am constantly...

    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...

    Ever experienced riding in a public vehicle

    and sitting beside the driver when he suddenly decides to smoke even thought there is a sticker in his windshield that says "NO SMOKING". Can't he read? or he just don't really get that there are lot of people who hate having to inhale smoke from cigarettes.

    *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...

    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...

    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...

    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! >.<

    :(

    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.

    NON SMOKERS ARE ALWAYS VICTIMS.

    .. I travel a lot for work and often take trains or subways. As soon as all the commuters get off the train they start puffing , merrily, away and they don't care that non smokers behind them are "forced" against their will, to inhale smoke they never wanted to inhale. In...

    It's Not Right

    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 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...
