    Again it boils down to people not respecting each other. If you are outside and a non smoker is down wind, move a few feet, will not kill you. Same for non smoker. If a smoker is next to the ash tray, move and let them put the ash and butts into it.

    Amazing how just a little common courtesy would help with all this angst over smoking.

    The way I would construct laws in regards to cigarette use would have to do with relative freedom of movement as well as whether the smoking was indoors or out. If indoors, I would prohibit smoking in public places, and in those situations outside where people have fixed seating such as sporting events or concerts, likewise. As long as people are free to move around, though, I would not restrict smoking.

    You do know eventually you won't like it anymore and will do anything to quit. It will be the hardest thing you ever do. After you quit you will regret every cigarette you've ever smoked and every dollar wasted on cigarettes. You will become an anti smoking crusader. You will be like the rest of us. I know. I smoked for 15 years.
    You smoke because you are addicted.

    Re: New Smoking Ban Good or Bad?

    In my humble opinion yes smoking is bad, but the American people knew that as far back as the 50's when they were called coffin nails.
    Also overeating is bad obeisity is bad addicted to prescription drugs is bad, starting wars that don't need to be started ect.

    However in the 50's people had and made choices nobody made their choices for them and if the people didn't like smoke they sit in a differant area or moved out of the way.
    No death certificate as ever been produced saying second hand smoke killed this person.
    Obeisiety however is a differant story and so is guns which is in the 2nd amendment to the constitution. that I support.

    Don't give me that crap, you don't even know me. I swear X smokers are the worst.

    I smoke because I like it. No one put a gun to my head and said smoke this or you die, lol. I am probably addicted now after 30+ years, but so what? I still like it.

    My father never smoked a day in his life. He also never drank nor did his father or mother do anything of the sort. He was also an organic farmer before this organic craze started.

    He died at 62 of lung cancer as did his father at 60.

    When your time is up, it's up.

    So you can keep your self righteous non smoking crap and well, you know.

    I mean really, you asked a stupid question.

    Edit: Quiting is hard, very hard. I will acknowledge that as I have quit. Did not smoke for 2 years, but I like it.

    Gotta agree with ya Blackdog.

    I think the keyword here is individual.

    Go ahead waste your money and ruin your health. Someday you will see the light and you will be an ex smoker just like me. The only reason people like smoking is because they are addicted. They need the fix. I know plenty of people that died early and suffered horrible deaths from smoking.

    You reacted like everyone addicted to smoking. Just like a little child.

    Perfect example of the "angry X smoker," lol.

    I am acting like a child because I choose to live my life the way I want? HEHEHEHEHEHE!

    Well at least you made me laugh.
