For Almost 7 Years I Smoked...against My Will

When I was going to college I got a job as a casino runner at a joint called Lady Lil's. Handled money, paid out winnings, made change, acted as bartender, maintained the gambling machines, etc.

It was a small casino consisting of 20 gambling machines in a medium sized room, so it only took about 5 people smoking to overpower the ventilation fans. If it was a packed house and most of them were smoking... omg. I would hold my breath for my trips through the smoky areas, and by the time I got home I'd have a headache every time. 6 1/2 years of headaches...

After I finally quit and moved out of state, I still felt the effects of my time at the casino. It took me about 2 years before my lungs were fully functional, until then I would feel it when I went to the gym and played basketball.

I love Casinos as much as I love dance clubs and I like to see new ones on our road trips. We may have met in our former lives V. :P I think I know the kind you are describing and even I have to step out for some fresh air.
