There are several things civilized people would refrain from doing in mixed company, smoking a cigar, cigarette, or pipe being one of them.
Smoking a nice cigarette is a pleasure. Smoking one near those who don't smoke is not.
It says on your avatar that you are the site owner.
I will now have to choose my words carefully as I suppose you can stop my thread or remove me from this site.
I understand that there are vices that we all like. I can hardly argue with your logic that 'civilized' people would refrain from doing certain things
in the presence of those who do not.
It is a shame that there are not more people (especially on this thread) who share your thoughts. If that were the case I would not of had a face full
of smoke and not be fending off so many people left, right and center.
My grandmother on my fathers side died from Cigarettes. She got double pneumonia because of the effects of smoking. I had warned her long before she
died that she would indeed succumb to the habit. She smoked a non filtered French brand called Gitanes and Camel non filtered.
When she got sick and ended up in hospital I had no sympathy for her. I did not attend the funeral and I think she got what she deserved. She was
devoutly religious a born and raised Catholic that attended a school run by nuns. But her addiction to the cigarette was all too powerful for her weak
mind. I would also think that her god turned his back on her too. After all, her death was kind of painful and unpleasant.
I have to ask why a man like yourself, creator of ATS and as far as I can see from your posts I have quickly read very intelligent, why you would harm
yourself this way when obviously a lot of people depend on you being around!? ATS members for example!!
