July, it'll be two years since I quit smoking.
Smokers stink.
I don't like to be around a smoker, the smell
actually bothers me.
I suppose I'm allergic or something.

If you people think this will be the end of big brother interference, guess again. This is only the beginning. Telling business owners what they can and cannot allow in their own establishments???? There are plenty of places that have been non-smoking for quite some time, if you are a non-smoker hurrah for you! I'm not imposing my standards on non-smokers, let me drink, eat and smoke in peace, in places that the OWNERS have deemed it appropriate, not the State of Pennsylvania.

It's time to get those who are breaking the smoking law off the street. Lock them up with the other druggies. Also, cell phone use should be banned in public places. That and the smoking. Also, farting should be banned. Lock them up too. That and smoking and cell phones.

This is a joke, what a waste of taxpayer money. If a bar or establishment wants to allow smoking and you don't like it, don't go there, just another freedom taken away.

Understand you on this one. I do not go into establishments where there is smoking. I quit 16yrs. ago and I still can't handle the smell and the allergic reaction. And since I don't frequent and expose myself to 2nd hand smoke in establishments I feel it is an intrusion of my rights to be subjected to smoke when entering a store, a shopping mall, other businesses, etc. passing a smoker on the street. Although I know these smokers will say it is an intrusion of their rights to prohibit smoking in these public areas. But they must not or refuse to understand I chose to not smoke their cigarette with them. If I wanted to smoke and not breathe and pollute my lungs and have stinky clothes I would have never stopped smoking. And congrats on quiting.

Because we were foolish like the ones still smoking. Now we enjoy clean air, actually tasting our food, an attitude of accomplishment for getting rid of an addiction, more money in our pockets, looking to a longer healthier life, no more stinky smell on our clothing and hair etc. no more yellow teeth and stinky breath. Need I say more. What a simple minded question. Evidentally you are a smoker with all of the above problems and foolish you are. If not a smoker foolish you are that you let others smoke so you can smoke their cigarette and deal with all the above. What common sense is that just to proove you are right. And if neither of those statements pertain to you than where are your brains , hmmmm. Wise up, honey.

Knuckle up and enjoy struggling to breathe with your future COPD. What a fool as I said before. I have more of a right not to have to be assaulted by your 2nd hand smoke blowing in my face as I exit or enter a store, mall etc. You guys need a special place outside of a store far away from those who chose not to pollute their lungs with your stinking smoke. I for one do not feel my child or any other child should have to have smoke blown in their direction as we exit. As I said you need your own area where you can all infect each others lungs and smell of stench from smoke with your gross breaths and yellow teeth. You can't sell tobacco products to kids under 18yrs. of age why on earth is it OK to pollute the air they breathe and help you smoke your cigs. with your 2nd hand smoke. If you are a woman I bet you are a pleasure to kiss and smell your stinky hair not to mention the damage to your wrinkley skin. A real looker, huh. You sound like a very ignorant human being. Cough away!!!!

And if you plan on using car, bus, truck etc. fumes as a reasoning. It doesn't wash. As to drive a car or transportation is basically a necessity to get from here to there where the distance is to far to walk. And looking at that as an excuse it makes no sense because logic is you have a choice to drag on those disgusting cigs. you have a choice to have that filthy habit but I and others also should have a choice and right not to have it imposed on us.

Eichelberger's gets cited? Its a frigging junkyard for petes sake, with nice people which I have only been to twice. The lady there was so helpful researching some parts for me. Come on... if you can't smoke in your own building what is next? I understand non-smokers not wanting to be around it. I don't understand people imposing their will on others. What about perfume and colognes in public places? Where are the laws for that? I see farting has been proposed to be outlawed. What about people who wear their clothes for days in a row and stink.
Whether you like smoking or not, why do some people get to tell others what to do? I don't like hearing others music at traffic lights either is that going to be banned?
