Yeah I hate ordering food at a bar and having to choke through the smoke. Also having to hang my leather out to get the smell out. The worst are the Cigar smokers. Mike : )

Not that I go to bars that often, but I like the law. When you walk out of the place you smell horrible. When you take your clothes off at home, your room stinks too.
I personally think smoking is a stupid thing to do to yourself, but if someone wants to do it, it is their right to do so. Even though it appears that smoking cigarettes is becoming more taboo than ever.
The health problems, the cost, the smell, etc, nothing I can see is a positive to do it. If you want to do it, go ahead, but please don't do it around me. I don't want to smell that crap when I am eating, and I certainly don't want to walk into a bar and have my eyes burn from the thick wall of smoke.

I have to laugh when the smokers say "if you don't like it, stay home" or "go to a place that is no smoking". Excuse me, three months ago, there was not a bar or bowling alley that didn't allow it. Now it is not an issue. so, to that, I say... If you Want to smoke, STAY HOME! Problem solved.

Six Flags in New Jersey has created 15 "designated smoking area's" in the park. Plain and simple, if you get caught smoking in an area of the park other than the park, you are EJECTED. No questions asked, no refunds. BRAVO SIX FLAGS! I didn't think they would redeem themselves after what the did to the park in Aurora, but with that, they are tipping the scales back the right way. BTW, Cedar Point has set asside FOUR designated smoking area, and is a much bigger park.

You know i like to make a commenton this thread.. i Started smoking when i was like in school since like 76-78. I was young really young and i would take a cigarette or two from my Father's so called WIFE (thogh they ARE MARRIED, i will refuse to even call her my step mother.. but thats another story form mylife. hehe)... i would take smokes from her all the time.. she wouldnt know it!..

Well i smoked right up till about 1996-97. I used to smoke like 2-3 packs day when i was in the service back in 1980-81... heck at the time we really neededto hehe

Well in 96-97 i got the flue bug.. i was really sick for liek 2 weeks.. and i didnt smoke through out that time. Then when i started to feel better. I had some cravings for cigarette.. so i would smoke one.. EWWWWWWWW.. i mean EWWWWWWWW. i couldnt smoke it all.. tho i craved it i couldnt smoke it.. so then that lasted for a couple months where i woud crave it and only take a drag or two.. i couldnt ever smoke a full cigarette since the flue bug!

well now i ahavent smoked a cigarette since.. and i cant even be around smoke i get sick.. When my son used to come over he would have to smoke out side the door so i wouldnt breath it!

Whats odd.. is that when someone comes in that has been around smoke.. like my buddy CoolDude.. he doesnt smoke but his son does.. andhe has freinds that smoke too.. and i can smell it on him when he comes over.

Just like DD said.. it stays on the cloths.. since i quit i am so able to pick up on it too! more so!.. like i am more sensitve the the smell and ewwwwwww it does gross me out now!

But it was back when i was playing in bands in clubs.. the beer and smokes usually went to gether. hehe!.. and well i was in and around it almost every weekend .. but that wasback then.. i dont play in clubs like i used to anymore.. those days are gone!.. But i dont miss the cigarretes! .. and since i dont smoke . my drinking also has cut down alot too!.. i havent had a beer in ages hehehe or whisky either.!! heheh Tho I DO MISS the BEER! hehe.. a good beer here and there wouldnt hurt me! hehe

But the prices of the CIGARETTES thats another thing too man they are like 5 frippen bucks a pack when sold invidially peopel pay like 40-50$ for a carton! amn thats damn out ragiousssssssss! I FOR THE LIFE of me coulnt afford that now if i did still smoked!

Another good thing came out of it too.. since that day of the flue bug.. i havent gotten sick anymore since.. i mean if i did it wouldnt only be like a day.. then i would feel better!.. never anythign longer.. and you knwo what else is the reason for that!? I dont take the stupid man made pills and stuff that the stupid doctors try to prescribe... C.E.L.E.B.R.E.X. V.I.O.X.X. etc etc.. good thing too! cause they had law suits on them! too!.. the only thing i take is tylonel for when ever i get a stress headaches! Razz

heheh ok this is starting to sound like a commerical hehe so i am done rambling!

Dude, How stupid are people? There is carbon monoxide in cigarettes, just like the exhaust from a car. There is AMMONIA in cigarettes. You are breathing in the same smelly chemical you clean with. NEWS FLASH. What does it say on bottles of ammonia? CAN BE DEADLY IF INGESTED. Smokers jump through hoops to prove their stupidity. Take a drag on my tail pipe, and drink a bottle of ammonia, and lower my health insurance premiums, so **I** don't have to pay for your Kemo.

Speaking of which... There needs to be a law preventing people on public assistance from smoking. If you are caught, that is it. You are dropped. As a tax payer, I pay for your cigarettes AND health care??!! BULL CRAP!!!

I saw a post somewhere on the net... Not all smokers are low life's, but all low life's are smokers! Isnt it amazing how that works?

I'm not getting into all of the bad things that are in cigarettes, but seeing as we get older, the health issues are far greater being a smoker.
Admin, it was nice to hear the point of view from an ex-smoker. I never smoked, but I did try it in college like a dummy. Well, maybe not so much a dummy, it made me realize how awful it was and why would anyone ever want to do it. It is extremely expensive to do.
As far as those on public assistance, many, not all, use their government income to buy the things they want as they cry for what they need. They won't feed their kids or give them a bed, but they can buy cigarettes, liquor, video games (sorry Mike), rims, music, 200 dollar tennis shoes, etc. They won't spend money on car and health insurance, but they have satellite tv, cell phones, and personalized license plates.
