    my mum started smoking again

    after my brother got arrested as a way to relieve stress. She promised she wouldn't smoke again today, but now she went and bought a new packet. I just hate that she doesn't care about how I feel. She just stopped drinking, which was also to relieve stress and now I think she'll...

    I Cannot Stand It

    Growing up, both of my parents smoked. Both my sister and I had allergies and asthma. Our mother told us to lie to the doctor if she asked us if our parents smoked so our mother would not have to get a lecture about how smoke is bad for asthmatics. As if the doctor would not be...

    I can't stand the smell of smoke.

    My dad has been smoking around me since I was a little kid. The part that really gets to me is that he smokes inside the house and I can smell it in my room every time he does it. It really frustrates me, but he won't stop and I can't get away from it. Then the whole...

    When you watch your best friend and mother slowly killing herself every day for 5 minutes of some ridiculous, mass-marketed, 'social activity' that she is totally dependent on; you develop something like hatred for smoking. This feeling grows in intensity when you watch her...

    Filthy Habit Indeed...

    I think smoking is one of the filthiest habits that is alledgedly socially acceptable... especially when someone lights one up after (or worse during) dinner.... I feel it's even worse than standing up, turning around and fart..... gross for sure, but at least that...

    Smoking is extremely ugly to Me,

    I don't care if you're the hottest guy their is. If you smoke, I will not stay with you. SMOKING IS SO STUPID! It will kill you. In my opinion, cigarets should be illegal, my oldest sister smokes, and she smells terrible, she coughs all the time, and she's having lung problems...

    I can not conquer this addiction

    and it's ticking me off. I often deliberately make sure I have no cigarettes and because I live outside of town, it is very inconvenient to go buy more. It never works and eventually I break down and make a special trip to the store. I have tried smokeless, it is not the...

    I find it very unattractive

    for a woman to smoke. It's disrespectful to their bodies and inconsiderate to others.

    Disgusting Habit

    But I Won't Knock You For It...

    I have Aunts, Uncles, Grandmother, even my younger Cousin who smoke. I love them all, and that's the reason I want them to stop smoking. It's shortening their lives and the quality of them. But it doesn't mean I'm going to estrange myself from my family. So if you do smoke, I...

    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...

    I really dislike it..

    My parents smoke, basically everyone around me smokes, even my crush. I don't judge anyone on why- or because they do it's their choice. I just tell them not to smoke near me because I don't like. I normally wouldn't like to date a guy who smokes, but if me and my crush did...

    At work, the smokers congregate & inevitably,

    some guy wants the door open. As if his goal is to make non smokers with asthma choke. Yet my pastor says smoking will not send anyone to Hell. While it may be true for some, for they don't seek to harm any.. It's not true for others.. As if you refuse to breathe it in, some...

    or even tasted it. And I never will. But i have this weird dream that I keep seeing every now and then. Like just last night, perhaps for the 10th time or so. In the dream I smoke cigarettes. The surroundings and people are different but I am a chain smoker. It's a very vivid...

    I Call It The " Cancer Stick" Or " Death Stick."

    I know this is a fairly obvious way to put it, but whenever I think of cigarette smoke, I always comment by saying "I smell death in the air." I absolutely hate the smell of it! To me, breathing in that crap is like sucking off the end of a exhaust pipe on a car because that's...

    I tried one cigarette

    when I was 13 out of curiosity. It was possibly the most vile thing I've ever tasted, smelt and felt. How anyone can do that to themselves is beyond me.

    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...
