Parents who smoke are no better then pedophiles who rape children.
I enjoyed one of your threads so I will not throw dirt at your face on this one.
However, when someone is smoking in a public place, what about the people who are not smoking? I'm sure you'd tell them to go somewhere else.
Where do the non-smokers go if people are allowed to smoke anywhere they please?
let me admit that I am the child of smokers, and that I myself smoked for over 26 years, including the years when my daughter was growing up.
I no longer feel the need to defend my addiction
And that is what smoking is, an addiction
Considering the myriad of problems the nicotine addiction inflicts upon the children of those addicted to this legal drug, it most certainly SHOULD be considered grounds for finding such parents as unfit to raise children...

Wow, I havent read every page but the ones I have read are pretty heated. Im going to pose a question here but as I said, I havent read every page, so if it has been asked and answered, please accept my apologies in advance.
I smoke. I have a pre-teen child. I do not smoke around my child nor do I smoke in my house. I typically go to my garage and tinker around and smoke there. I do smoke in my car but only if I am by myself. I typically go out of my way to make sure I dont cause others discomfort because of my habit. Does this make me an unfit parent?
