Because it's my choice to do it and not your place to tell what I can and can ot do. THIS is the mindset that's help get us where we are. "I don't like it so you shouldn't be able to do it". Well, I don't like fake vanilla perfumes, so you can't have any. I hate romance novels and chick flicks, so you shouldn't be able to watch them. If you don't like what I'm doing, go somewhere else.

We should all be eating insects. Good for us, tasty ((being dead serious)) pan fried crickets are amazing with a dash of salt and paprika



Try extra virgin olive oil and just a touch of garlic powder [ not garlic salt!! ] on a bed of brown rice. Or flame roasted on a skewer. The roasting brings out the nutty flavor.

I have smoked for 40 years, all day every day, since I was 12. I lived in a house with smoking parents since I was born and probably during my growth in the womb AND I AM STILL ALIVE. If it is so bad for me why has it not killed me 20 times over? I expect to live to 80 plus and die a smoker. All humans, until electricity, sat in a house filled with smoke from coal or wood fires. Every one of the billions of humans from the start of time took in smoke. That is why our lungs have filters. Ancient tribes smoked, modern tribes smoke. What the body can't take is sugars and fats. They are the biggest killers, not second hand smoke that our lungs are already designed to cope with. For those that are disgusted with a puff of smoke but will sit around a barbeque or an out door fire are hypocrites.


I think it is somewhat different



Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT.

Put those on a spoon and feed them to the kids, will you be arrested?

The OP was about smelling smoke. I told my story and asked why hasn't it killed me yet? Didn't mention anything about spoon feeding kids with it. Nor did the OP. When this words goes nuts and we are all out there lighting fires to cook and keep warm by, you will smelling and taking in smoke too.

There are many regualtions banning smoking near entrances, inside of buisnesses and so on. However banning something that is completely legal is ludicrous. You dont smoke but many other people do, regardless if you can understand it or not. I don't drink so lets go ahead and ban booze because I don't like the way it makes me feel, how anyone can enjoy being drunk is beyond me. What youre suggesting is sort of like that, its pure ridiculousness.

I also hate the smell of my neighbors BBQ smoke when it gets inside my house, lets ban that too.

muse7 I think they should ban all talk about banning public smoking. And then ban internet whining.

There, goes both ways. You want to ban public smoking, something many enjoy. So, imagine being told what you can and cannot do.

Seriously, this planet needs to grow up. No matter who you are you do things that offend others, can't please everyone all the time. Agree to disagree, peaceful coexistence, tail between the legs, whatever it's called, it's better than all out war over something as petty as cigarettes.

Just because you have an issue with smoking you cant deal with, dont take it out on reality.

But then... youre not here. It is absolutely a requirement in not hiring NEW HIRES. And they are not interested in if youll quit if you get hired.

Of course there are places still there for smokers to indulge, including hospitals. But they are few and far between with signs announcing those places will no longer be provided within 30ft of the buildings and med centers....nor be provided by the employer anymore.

They will however, assist any current employee addicted to cigarettes in quitting.

ie: Universtiy of Michigan Hospital
Oakwood Health Care Hospitals
Detroit Medical Centers
Henry Ford Medical Centers
....and a few dozen others

Seriously...you also cant buy cigarettes at CVS Pharmacies...soon, it will be all pharmacy-stores...then Wal-marts...then...
