No matter what they do, they'll keep smoking.

If they don't already understand the message about
emphazyma, lung cancer, COPD, etc. then nothiing else is going to matter.

Yes, they are slaves to their addiction. They hate nonsmokers because they think nonsmokers
are overracting to smoking around them.

It's always easier to blame someone else.

Please do not assume that all smokers "hate" non-smokers. Some smokers, such as myself, have no such feelings. Yes, I understand all the messages, and yes, I will continue to smoke, but no, I do not hate non-smokers, and no, I do not think they are over-reacting to those who smoke around them. What makes me (and other smokers like me) different? We go out of our way to not smoke around non-smokers. Hell...I don't even smoke in my own house.

That's something I actually don't understand,
if you smoke and will continue to make, and you have the right to smoke in your own house,
why would you NOT smoke in your own house?

Because I have young children who happen to live here too! I also only smoke in my car when the children are not with me. Make sense now?

True True...Smokers have less income and some do try to quite but they cant afford it cuz they be spending it on that crap. And the ones who do try to get help go to a place and they end up charging then to much. Especially if they are sick. Theres only one place i know that charges just 49.95 for a doc visit and they help people out who lost there jobs or insurances. its a clinic in Winter Haven by Big Lots. they're really nice. i would recommend that place to everyone not only to smokers!!!
