Typical smokers response. Yes why should you consider anyone else when in the end people are going to die anyway. Nice logic.
Well if you were right, and smoking does not cause any additional problems, how is it that it has been proven that smoking does indeed cause additional health problems?
Maybe you should consider the fact that you're not the only one on the planet and have consideration for others instead of just for yourself.
You are arguing just to argue and contribute in no way to this debate.
You want to force your opinions on everyone to show us little people how smart you are.
You're an idiot.
I have tried very hard to be civil but watching you badger people has gotten me to a boiling point.
A right is not a right with conditions.
Is your right to live as you see fit met with conditions? You are giving typical asinine non smoker reactions and wonder why you are being met with sarcasm. Yes we all breathe polluted air. It is an undeniable truth. But we have been doing so for years and one great thing about the human body is that it evolves.
You don't have the right to not breathe my smoke. Show me that in the constitution.
I will admit it isn't nice or right to blow smoke at people, but I have the inalienable right to do as I please.
Don't walk through where I am smoking.
You think because you don't smoke that you can walk anywhere you want and enforce your beliefs on people.
I'm walking here *cough cough* you shouldn't smoke here. That will be met with a you shouldn't be walking here.

Besides... how dare people have the audacity to dictate what someone else does to themselves.
I don't want to be subjected to it everywhere. I don't want to see children exposed to it everywhere.

It should be noted that pesticide free cigarettes CAN be manufactured. This hasn't happened even today! Even though scientists are aware that pesticides and other added chemicals are largely responsible for the any incidents of cancer. Smokers are merely scapegoats.

I wouldn't care if cigarettes killed within a week of their inhalation. You will never convince me to give up my liberty to do as I please, and yes that means my liberty to do things which are considered very unhealthy. I will fight for people's right to decide for themselves how healthy a life they want to live. Would you want people telling you you're not allowed to eat red meat, ride a motorcycle, swim in the ocean, etc.. I know most of this has already been posted, but I don't understand why some can't understand such a simple concept.

I can show you 2nd hand smoke is both a direct lung irritant and can initiate disease factors. Will you believe it? Of course not as you have already decided that the facts that refute your OPINION are wrong. This is the problem with this issue. Since smokers want to smoke, they ignore facts to allow them to continue their behavior.
The pot calling the kettle black eh ?
I've seen several reliable sources burning down your arguments, but you choose to ignore this info so you can continue your personal crusade.
Since non-smokers want to disallow smokers from continuing their habit, they ignore the facts to allow them to condemn this behavior..
Just to be clear, it's not about YOUR future health, it's about everyone else's around you. You do not have the right to endanger someone else's health. PERIOD![/quote
And the drama queen appears for one more appearance..
Awww poor smoker.
Do you honestly believe that the product in cigarettes which you inhale, have no affect on your health? and others?
Are you saying that cigarette smoke is completely inert and in no way harmful to anyone and anything? Do you actually expect anyone to believe that?
Do you honestly believe the soda you drink.. the food you eat.. the air you breathe.. the radiation from too numerous sources to mention are in no way harmfull to anyone and anything?
Give me a friggin' break..

IMHO, drugs [not just marijunana - ALL drugs], gambling, public nudity, prostitution, public intoxication, public fornication, and imported ninja monkeys should be legal everywhere.

Please I am begging a non smoker to tell me the difference from banning smoking because it “may” I repeat “may’ cause damage through second hand smoke. But the perfumes and colognes that people where directly can give people who suffer from migraines their migraines.

But just for the record, if you worked with me and you told me that my cologne gave you headaches, it wouldn't even be a question. I would NEVER wear it around you again out of respect for you and your health.
