    Sad To Watch

    Watching members of my family, friends, colleagues, you name it succumb to those addictive cigs is depressing. I've seen the slow, painful death and horrible quality of life brought on by COPD and wouldn't wish it on anyone. I just can't keep my mouth shut and do my best to...

    When I first moved into my apartment,

    it reeked of cigarette smoke. Apparently the last tenant smoked like a freight train. The cleaning lady hired by the apartment complex cleaned the apartment as much as she could, but it still reeked and I'm still finding cigarette residue everywhere. I took a shower one day and...

    Hate When Someone Smokes Around Me

    Yes, I absolutely hate it. That's why maybe I didn't get addicted to cigarettes when I tried them. They just didn't inerest me. What'sin that smoke that people like it so much? I fail to understand that. It makes me very unconfortable around people who smoke. I heard than...

    It Is a Disgusting Habit

    It smells bad and makes people sick! Hell, it makes me sick, just to smell it when I walk by someone smoking or on their clothes. I have asthma so I can't understand why people would smoke and ruin their health. I'm also a respiratory therapist and I take care of people who are...

    Smoking? ... Hm.

    My sister is a huge smoker. She has at least two packs a day. She started when she was 16.. And I don't know why they gave it to her, because here you are supposed to be 19 to buy. And her health card directly said; '16'. This is probably why I found another girl's OCC card in...

    I Live With A Smoker

    I hate how the smoke gets on everything; it stinks. I hate walking into a house that smells like smoke because it just seems like the house isn't clean.  I hate breathing the smoke in and it sometimes doesn't help if I leave the room.

    It's bad for your health, as well as for other people's. Any respiratory illness a smoker has lasts longer. Anything to do with the lungs is severely compromised over time. Then there's the skin damage. And the smell. I just don't understand why people start. Peer pressure, maybe...

    So Disgusting

    I have never smoked, but being around smokers is disgusting.  When a smoker sits next to me on a bus or train, even though they aren't smoking at the time, the smell of the smoke from their clothes and skin just permeates the whole area and I feel like I'm going to puke...

    So much. I once read that smoking is like holding up a sign that says "I'm not in control of my own behavior." After reading that I never looked at a smoker the same way. It's completely gross.

    You CHOOSE to smoke. I cannot choose to STOP BREATHING. I hate smoking/smokers. Every time you smoke you are inflicting your habit on others, and it is unfair. Even if you are in a forest with no one else around, you are still polluting the environment we all live in and are...
