Please keep your nasty cigarette clouds of cancer away from people who don't smoke and their children! You shouldn't smoke anywhere near children! It's against the law to smoke and drive with kids in the car, it should be against the law to smoke and ride near kids! Kids ahe asthma and other things and you are not only jeopardizing your own health but risking the lives of countless children around you. Stop being so selfish!

I, for one, DO move to the side, away from the crowds to smoke. I try to respect others. However, you, and your child(ren), are in a public place. You know there will be smokers there. I have the right to smoke, just like you have the right NOT to. Just because you don't agree with it, doesn't mean you have more of a right. I agree that some smokers are disrespectful, and careless. But, not all of them are. It is MY choice to smoke, not yours. That's the main reason I step away from the crowd when I want to smoke. Just because I smoke, doesn't mean you want secondhand. I sympathize with you there. However, please keep in mind that smoking is legal, and we BOTH have rights.

I agree AND disagree with this post. As Speaking For Myself said, when you take your children to the fair you know first hand you are taking them to a public OUTDOOR place. You already know there will be smokers there, there is NO way around it. I too move to the side when I am going to smoke a cigarette there. My husband does as well, BUT there is no way that you can avoid being around smokers completely at the fair unless you just choose not to go at all. Every year someone makes a post like this during fair week and nothing has changed yet and honestly I doubt that it ever will. I have way too much fun watching my kids enjoy themselves any way to notice who does and does not have a cigarette in their hand. Ive never noticed anyone smoking a cigarette on a ride before. Do people even do that??

I agree! A lady burned my daughter with a cigarette when she brushed by us! It is getting out of hand! She had the lit cigarette in her hand down by her sides instead of near her mouth. Most smokers are very careless because it's their fix. Would you expect an alcoholic to bring a bottle of Jack Daniels and drink it walking around the fair? Alcohol is legal to consume if you're of age. Why not go ahead and let meth heads walk around with their pipes just smoking away. It's illegal but who cares right? As long as they get their fix!

Wow. I'm sorry that happened. I hope your daughter is ok. I'm a smoker, and even I would've been infuriated if it were my child. That's exactly why I choose to step away from the crowds. Not all smokers are disrespectful and careless like that.

Thank you. It burned her near her eye and timple, and singed her hair. Left a nasty little blister. They really should have designated smoking areas at either end then or at least not walk on the track while smoking. Smokers should go behind the rides or something.

I am a smoker also. I went to Senior Citizens day (Thursday) got there at 1245 and didn't have a cig until 4:m. why??? because I went with my sis and niece and they can't stand the smell.Cigarettes stink so bad but I still can't kick the habit.I will start smoking marijuna if it is ever legalized here. AT leastr it smells better.

Some people do respect other people when smoking. I do, if someone comes into my home I ask if they smoke if they say no but it does not bother me, STILL I will go outside or away, but I wait until they leave my home.. A of things people that don't smoke offends me too, I know people that don't smoke that are as vulgar minded as a human being can be.
Smoking is a fleshly sin, that does not warrant hell. The apostle Paul had a couple of flesh thorns he was not proud of. BUT evil people and what they do is in their souls. lies , and deceitful, those that teach their kids their evil ways are good..Are just a few.

I do not like to smoke in public, and especially around kids, but if someone came up to me and said my smoking was to close, I would move and say I am sorry. or put my cigarette out, not offended.

what would those that would offend me with those evils that I see in public, Would you stop, or call me names that were not true because of my stand .
some call people haters that say no to what they call good, that is adversary to what God says is good.

It was medical doctors that pushed cigarettes to a generation they now condemn, making their greed money for someone rich. what will they tell you or your kids grown to stop. that they are pushing today.
I have respect for those that do not smoke, especially kids. NOT PROUD OF MY ADDICTION TO TOBACCO, MY THORN IN MY FLESH, iT does not get into my soul..

Not careless? Breathing carbon monoxide isn't careless? Look up third hand smoke.
It kills or males people ill just being around your clothes...
