Your cologne and deodorant probably stink as well as your opinion stinks to high hell. Should that be banned as well?

Go fly a damn kite with your dirty rotten inhumane socialistic tyrannical opinions.

Seriously, I am sick of people LIKE YOU telling me how to live and cheating me and the rest of us! Hell anytime I get to unleash on one of you socialistic morons is a plus for my rights and my fellow patriots rights. You only got your opinion on what was politically indoctrinated to you, if this the case 50-60 years ago you would be praising cigarettes. PUH LEASE!

I know that you smokers where going to bring up the whole "well car fumes are just as worse!" argument.

But car, buses and trucks, and airplanes do actually serve a useful purpose aka transportation. They take people to their jobs, and to the hospitals and to school.

What is the purpose of smoking other than fulfilling your nicotine addiction and exhaling toxic carcinogenic fumes?



I loved smoking. I did quit and now vape as a consolation.


Just because it wasn't your thing doesn't mean its not mine.

As usual, South Park sums it all up far better than I ever could.

People that want to ban something they don't like infuriates me.

Part of being an American is protecting the Freedoms that exist. Like it or not.

I find many smells repugnant including smoke.

I sure as hell don't want to ban what others enjoy.

I hate hunting...I will fight for your right to do it though.

that crap smells horrendous, just the smell of the smoke is enough to give me a head ache for hours. Surprisingly I tried to smoke a cigarette once and never again will I attempt something that stupid.

I seriously don't know how people can smoke that crap. I had a headache for days along with a sore throat. No one should be subjected to those foul smells and toxic fumes.


Public obesity should be banned completely. The sight is horrendous, and makes me ill. Surprisingly I had let myself fall into it once and never again will I allow myself to be that lazy.

I seriously don't know how people can consume such toxic waste as soda and mcdonald's. No one should be subjected to such a site and in close proximity the smells are horrendous...

My child should not have to see people like that. It promotes an unhealthy lifestyle.

This is meant more to show a point rather than bash on obese people. I realize some of you have medical conditions and I hope you understand that this is meant to be about people that choose to become this way

TO OP: how about we whine about corporations filling our air with things much worse and in much higher amounts before we whine about smokers. Some of us got hooked at a very young age and struggle with quitting. I have personally tried over and over again, and many that I know have tried as well. (real attempts not half assed ones).

What is worse, sitting at a cafe and having to put up with a smoker? or sitting at a cafe and having to put up with a P.O.S talking on his/her mobile phone for all the world to hear?

Personally, the phone freak pisses me off more.

But, that's just me.

Whilst we are talking about cleaning up society and taking out the trash, I think all politicians, banking cartels, the CIA, FBI, DHS and the NSA should be banned completely too - no-one should be subjected to those foul smells and toxic fumes that are killing scores of humans on a daily basis.

I feel very bad you're hooked but it's you have every right to smoke if you want to. Everybody should enjoy freedom, even if it offends or disgusts others. And I feel bad for the OP because I don't like smoking cigs either but people light up in front of me all the time. If I can't get away I deal with it.

If we banned everything that offended people this would be an even worse planet.

I don't smoke- and I hate that people DO smoke... but try and tell me I can't go for a walk and have a smoke, now we've got a problem.

Try this- ban mass producing them instead

Force people to roll their own- there's less garbage in those ones anyway, and lots of people would be able to quit if they weren't so damn easy to buy.

Yeah,

My and the wife were in Los Angeles and were at an outdoor tourist attraction and I needed a smoke so I went away from everybody else (as I try to be considerate) and was smoking. A lady walked by about 40' away and got a whiff of smoke and said something directed at me (couldn't hear what it was but the dirty look and the tone was unmistakable) and she physically dragged the little girl away.

I was thinking "REALLY??" You live in a place that sticks and can't even see the sky because of pollution every day of your lives and one small whiff of smoke and you act like the world is ending.

Some people live to criticize others and tell them what they shouldn't be doing.

This is still a mostly free country and I acknowledge their right to complain...and I have the right to think they are idiots.

As a smoker, I am choked by the expelled breath of non-smokers... heavy in toxic CO2 and noxious germs and lunch, non smokey breath should def be banned in public spaces... what people expel in their own homes is their business, though... I guess I'll allow that...

To the OP

You only think that exposure to tobacco smoke gives you an "instant" headache. There could not possibly be enough chemicals in outdoor exposure to second hand smoke to cause you any harm. Studies repeatedly show that you have to be within a foot of a smoker's mouth before you can even measure the so-called "toxins"

But people have been brainwashed by public health officials that even the briefest of exposures to the part per quadrillion of tobacco smoke has adverse health effects. They have instilled FEAR into your head. When a person as susceptible to brainwashing and propaganda (like YOU) are afraid, you tend to hunch your shoulders and tighten your neck and clench your jaw, causing the so-called "instant" headache.

umm.edu...

Don't you appreciate the way public health has gone out of their way to make a cripple out of you?

Yep that is the smell of a total snob, all clean and fresh forgetting their humanity and trying to smell like a apricot, peach, cocnut or some other stupid non human smell that some feel makes them smell tidy.
WRONG! it makes you smell like a douche.

You might've missed the tone of the post... but nevertheless... what does a douche smell like? I've never had the pleasure... at least until now, that is.

Well maybe someday you might get to be with a woman to know? And if you are a woman which either way i think you are, you should consider using one.

I was going to leave this alone as you are obviously having a bad day... but with that set up...sigh...

Regarding the comment about me being with women... "well, the women I've been privileged to commingle with were healthy and didn't need any added moisture... or flushes to not be offensive"... and then I could add something like "unlike a certain someone's momma..."

OP, I'd take up smoking just to annoy you. Stop whining about other's rights before the government bans something you like to do.

Well "my momma's" dead so I don't think a douche would help? Just like a douche would not probably help your situation either. Well maybe in your mouth? yea that could use a freshening up for sure.
