    I hate it but I like it at the same time.

    Like it smells wicked yucky but it reminds me of someone who was close to me.

    Thank God, my Mom quit smoking.

    It took her to find out March 4, 2015 that she has a mass on her lung, and suspected cancer to quit, but she hasn't smoked since. It has since been confirmed that she has stage 4 lung cancer. She still hasn't picked up a cigarette, though the house has packs floating about in...

    It smells disgusting.

    You can practically walk into a room and smell the cancer spreading through the air. Not really but the smell sticks to your clothes and your furniture and it isn't pleasant.

    Smells Like Death & Pain

    I lost a very close friend to stage 4 lung cancer. The amount of suffering he endured was something that only 4 packs of cigarettes a day could do to someone. I have almost 9 months cigarette free now after smoking for more years of my life than not.. Cigarettes smell like...

    I can't stand the smell. If I have to walk past someone who is smoking, I do it holding my breath. So, imagine how great it was when we went to visit my Opa, who has smoked for years and years and years - INDOORS. We stayed in that house for a week, and it absolutely reeked. The...

    Every night a large group of neighbors smoke

    outside my house and the smell really wafts inside the windows. It makes me quite paranoid that I might get lung cancer, actually. I'm still a kid and I wish they would just stop, or at least get an electronic cigarette or something.

    but when your cigarette stench engulfs my lungs, you've just brought my earlier opinion down a couple notches.

    It Makes Me Faint

    It's gross! I get so sick when I smell it. My husband smokes all the time. The worse is if we're on a trip and he'll roll down the windown and smoke. I hate it around our kids. But to him it's his only chance to smoke until we get to our destination. I don't see how people can...

    I get the worst migranes from headaches

    because I'm sensitive to smell. It bothers me so much when people smoke around non-smokers. Just because you decide to destroy you lungs doesn't mean you should be inconsiderate to the fact that other people do not want to breath in that cap. It's unnecessary and a complete...

    Can't stand it. Just being around them smelling

    it, you are pretty much smoking yourself as 'second hand smoking'! I try to hold my breath as long as possible when I have to be around or walk past people who are smoking. I feel as if my lungs are clogging up. It's absolutely horrible
