Most smokers seem like such selfish people.They have the gall to think they should have the right to smoke when or where they wish.Perhaps they could do this in the past but times changing and smokers must learn how to curtail their dirty habit.

Not to sound rude but how can you use the name "just candid"? The definition of candid is free from bias, prejudice, or malice, and yet you have a very bias opinion calling smoking a "dirty habit." You really can't say that just smokers are selfish people because non smokers are just as bad...I've been asked by a non smoker not to smoke in my own car before, you want to talk about rude and selfish...Most smokers have the decency to not smoke in a non smokers car

My 22-year old son has just brought a "friend" of his round to our house for his father to fix said "friend"'s bike. This person seemed a reasonable human being but I glimpsed him through the kitchen window smoking.

I can't express how angry I am. This person must know that non-smoking is now the norm, comes to my house, is done a favour, gratis, by my husband and commences to puff away on his bloody cancer stick in my garden. Unfortunately my husband does not want me to make a fuss and I know my son will hate me until the end of my days if I say anything, but inside I am - well - fuming! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

What the £$%& do we need to do for these selfish bastards get the message?

Now just what does this have to do with Tonasket? As it is in the tonasket forum? None of you have probably even been here let alone know a damn thing about what we, tonasket residents, think of smoking. Go toot your horn in another forum that actually applies to you.

wondering how a smoker would like someone standing near them off and on sporting a festering/rotten dear carcass. inhaling that odor would be just as bad. that`s how i feel about tobacco smoke.

I hate when people smoke around me...my boyfriend used to think that since he half owned the apartment we live in that he should have the right to smoke regardless of the fact that shouldn't I have a right to a smoke-free environment. We have a child now so he really can't smoke in the house. But it would frustrate me because my clothes would straight up stick of smoke.

This is how I see things I smoke because it is my right as it is a non smokers right not to smoke. The problem the world has these days is everyone knows what is best for everyone else. And please dont on about the health issues and the second hand smoke crap because its not true and i have proof and that is my mother

Carry a water gun around with you and squirt those filthy smokers. If I have to breathe the CO in your smoke, you get to enjoy my H2O. News Flash Smokers. Nobody likes you. Especially me. No one want to smell you or your gross habit. Nobody wants to deal with your bull shit ash on the ground or cigarette butts full of poison being blown through our streets and forests. Am I selfish too? You bet. But for all the right reasons. I fully support the tobacco industry packing more addictive substances and poisons in their cigarettes. It will kill smokers faster and then we won't have to deal with them or their disgusting, deadly habit.

A smoker's defense is always that they have a right to smoke if they want to. Well, I agree with that. What smokers don't seem to realize is they can't keep their cig smoke just to themselves. When you smoke it goes EVERYWHERE. A non smoker has the right not to smoke, but our right is stolen when a smoker is around. Another defense smokers use is that they say they don't smoke around pregnant women or babies. That's great, but do you really think they are the only groups of people on the planet? What about the rest of us? Just please be conscious of where your smoke is going. You want to smoke fine, just keep it to yourself.

Why is that so many on welfare need help but can afford cigs. Kissing a smoker is like licking the toilet.

Okay, all this ignorance scares and infuriates me. Smokers should die? SMOKERS ARE NOT A RACE!It's a bunch of people who just happen to smoke. Some are complete tools and some are the nicest damn people you'll ever meet. Some spend hours picking up butts that aren't even their's to keep the environment clean. Some people might donate to charity, are selfless, kind but are miserable inside and feel the need to smoke. I don't think I have specail rights but I do think that any phsyco that would wish death on somebody because they smoke is a waste of space in themselves. It's you assholes who polute the world and make it a terrible place just by being stupid and unempathetic. And how would you like it if I said, I hope you get blasted with second hand smoke so you can die and we'll be rid of ignorance! You non-smoker nazis are just as bad as the smokers that blow smoke at babies.

What really irks me is coming home to see a loser younger brother without a job who refuses to smoke outside. He says he's afraid of bugs but I know it's just a lie because he doesn't freak out when he sees them in the house. He just wants to have a cigarette without having to budge from his chair. My mom feeds his habit and buys him a new pack whenever he asks for one. He never went to college and the only job he ever had (years ago) was working at an Auntie Anne's. If he wants his lungs turned to charcoal, at least let him pay for it, not my low-income mother.

I used to be a smoker but I went outside to do it. I know what it's like to get defensive when people get on your case for a bad habit. I tried to justify it anyway I could. But I also realized that everything non-smokers said was true. It is a dirty habit. It's unhealthy, which is quite the understatement. It stinks and that stench lingers, and even as a smoker I knew deep down that I hated the smell. But it's only selfish if you are denying other people their right to clean air. Otherwise, I have no problem with it.

I don't mind bars or smoker designated areas. Smokers have to smoke somewhere. But I get so angry to think of how many children, pets, and other non-smokers take the hit for someone else's weakness. Addiction is a weakness, but no smoker will ever agree to that. Because no one will admit they're being ruled by what fuels them.

Why can't I come home to a house that doesn't reek of passive and second- and third-hand smoke? Like someone else here said, why can't I have that right? Because a loser in the attic doesn't care that three non-smokers and a dog are taking the hit from his habit. He's been smoking for years. The most he gets now is a slight buzz, if anything. He admitted to me himself that he just likes the feel of smoking and holding a cigarette and that he doesn't actually get anything out of it anymore. WHY so much grief and health hazards for the weakest buzz possible? I want to deck him in the face.

Smokers like to assume that if they themselves are taking the worst damage and are still fine, then it must not have much of an effect on pets or non-smokers. Smokers try to brush off a lot of facts and I know this from experience and from hearing what my friends say about their habit.

It's not always as simple as "if you don't want my smoke, then just don't come near me."

First of all, a race is ALSO a bunch of people where some are complete tools and some are very nice.
Second, people shouldn't be wishing death on people like this, true, but if you think smokers shouldn't die (as do I) then sadly we are in direct conflict of opinion with how nature and the human body work. We wouldn't be so damn mad if nature/evolution/whatever had seen fit to make us immune to the dangers of smoke (and fire), plus it wouldn't smell as bad to us since we wouldn't have had reason to instinctively avoid it. Sadly, this didn't happen, so here we are now... Normal, mentally healthy non-smokers don't wish death on smokers, we just want to avoid risking our own eventual death by shared poison, and a mentally- healthy smoker will respect that and not forcibly intrude. The way I see it... Say a smoker and non-smoker are waiting for a bus, and both want to use the bus shelter, but the smoker wants a cigarette. If the smoker arrived first, too bad for the nonsmoker, go find a spot upwind. But if the nonsmoker was there first, the smoker should either hold off on that cig or go find a spot downwind so the smoke won't bother the other person.
