I Think Smoking Around Children Should Be Illegal

So many life long affictions are caused by thoughtless adults poisoning children with passive smoking - it's not fair & it's not right. 226 People

    Both of my parents smoke,

    also my older brother, grandfather and many of my uncles and other family. And it sucks. I hate smoke. I get dizzy and sick, it's awful. The worst thing is that i grew up in this smoke, my lungs are probably black and rotten. And I did mot choose this. I can't sit around with...

    Yes

    I do think smoking around children should be illegal, as should be smoking while you are pregnant. I am a smoker, but I do not smoke around children at all.

    Smoking Should Be Illegal In General..

       Seriously. I cannot stand when other people smoke around me, especially when they don't even care that they are doing it! Just because you choose to inhale such toxins, doesn't mean I would like to! If I wanted to, I would smoke myself. But, obviously, I do not...
