    Oh, but I bet you're smart enough to make our decisions for us, eh? Whatever. Your and your high horse are so far up on that soap box that your head is in the clouds.

    I think you may need a smoke to calm down.

    You have a good evening.

    What is a "hardcore smoker?"

    Someone who listens to heavy metal while smoking? I mean really, it would be heavy smoker, not hardcore.

    What about someone who chews snuff or regular chewing tobacco? Can they listen to hard music and chew to be a "hardcore" chewer?

    No thanks. I quit 25 years ago and can't stand smoke now. My lungs are clear, my heart is strong and I feel great.

    The wierd thing about snuff is that it was meant to be snorted. Ewwww.

You're rights are not being violated at all by someone smoking near your proximity. Your senses are offended is all, and there's no right against being offended.

    I don't know, a lot of these arguments remind me of the people on the Rift forums bitching against DPS and Heal meters.
    By that logic, all drugs should be legal, no matter how harmful they are, and we should sell them for a profit. And off topic, our society is about as free as the government says it is.

    The most impotant thing in a hardcore smokers life is a cigarette. They have major anxiety attacks when they run out of smokes or are someplace where they can't smoke. They will dig an old butt out of an ashtray to get their nicotine fix. Smoking is on their mind all day long. They get up in the middle of the night and light one up while they take a dump. They also get very defensive when people challenge their destructive addiction.

    I will never tire of this "I'm smarter than you" bull**** that is done in ignorance more times than not. If you were wise, which you appear to not be judging from the above comment, you would know that people have the right to make bad decisons just as much as they have the right to make good decisions, and you have nothing to say on the subject. Apparently though, you are to clueless to what the topic is about to even consider for a moment your statement is ignorance.

    You have to inhale the second hand smoke? Are they holding you down?
