I Hate 2nd Hand Smoke

    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.

    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.

    Emphysema

    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...

    Gave First Hand Up Years Ago

     Sore throat and a nagging cough were no fun.  Now, most places are banning smoking but you still have to wade through the smokers lined up outside the door.  Yuck!  I remember kissing a smoker.  It was like licking an ash tray.  Not what I'd chose...

    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...
