Non-smokers...

Postby MeanderingBeing on 06 Dec 2009 07:54

...die every day.

Seriously, I have to ask: Why do non-smokers have to get in my face about smoking? I smoke outside, away from them non-smokers. I make a point to not make them have to deal with my smoke. SO, that leaves the question, why do they have to go out of their way to get all bent out of shape and get in my face? I CHOSE to smoke years ago, and still continue to CHOOSE to smoke. Please respect my f***ing decision, and respect my right to what I want to my body. I don't give people shit for being alchoholics, or smoking ganja, or filling their bodies with fast food, or staring at a TV for hours on end... So WHY do they feel that they HAVE to me a hard time. It is seriously starting to get under my skin, and makes me want to do more than get bent out of shape....

Just askin', you know, BECAUSE IT IS BLOODY ANNOYING.

Don't let it get to you. Just tell everyone you don't smoke. The cigarette smokes, not you. Or tell them you need some new clothes. Since they insist on telling you how to live your life, might as well clothe you also. B-)

I am a non-smoker but I am in full agreement with you. You smoke because you want to. I don't mind people smoking as long as they away from non-smoking areas (which most people tend to do).
Hopefully they learn to understand your decision soon.

I hereby dedicate this song to Bill Hicks' memory and non-smokers. Leave me alone, and I won't be so rude! :P

It gripes my ass when some obese drunk wants to complain about smoking. I'm a healthy 54 year old who has smoked little cigars
for over 35 years. But I'm not stupid, I know its a bad habit, so I take vitamins & an extra 1000% vitamin C every day. The secret
to being healthy is to beef-up your imune system in order to fight off any bad effects from a bad habit. I also drink orange juice every day.

Orange Juice is like the super drink... its good for your eyes, vocal chords, and goes great with Scotch! You should also drink some apple juice every day, it also helps with the eyes and immune system.

I'm a former smoker. The day I received my e-cig in the mail was the day I stopped smoking. I didn't QUIT, I simply stopped. It was that easy. And now, months later, smoking a cigarette makes me ill, it's an unpleasant thing to do.

I love tobacco flavors. I enjoy the smoke curling around and around on exhale. I think and work better under the influence of nicotine. I get ALL of that from e-cigs, plus I think the e-cig vapor (composed primarily of glycerine and propylene glycol, just like a fog machine at clubs or theaters) has reduced colds and other winter infections.

I like it when the anti-tobacco fascists get in my face about my "smoking" - I simply tell them the truth: I have no tobacco on me, no lighter or matches, and nothing's burning. I'm merely using my personal vaporizer! Watch as all their gears strip, right in front of your eyes. Too funny!

An e-cig is a small, personal fog machine. It uses a battery attached to a nichrome coil to atomize propylene glycol and/or glycerine ("liquid"). In the liquid are nicotine and flavor (though it need not contain nicotine). It is not a stop-smoking device (though some have used it so), nor is it legally a nicotine replacement therapy device (though it delivers nicotine to the body), but it IS an alternative to smoking.

Check out http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/ ... ettes.html

If that's not enough, I can post more links.

I forgot to mention, when using a personal vaporizer, you don't stink, your clothes don't stink and your home doesn't stink. People who smell what you exhale most often say it smells pleasant. And any remaining odor dissipates quickly.

Call me old fashioned, but... there is something about smoke curling around around my fingers and face as I stare down my current chess opponent... It is just... Intimidating for the foe...

Ah smoking. I smoke occasionally but otherwise don't really care. As a occasional smoker I can say its not that some people choose to smoke that bothers them, its the smoke itself and especially if they happen to grab a lungful as that smoke just gets everywhere. Even I don't like cig smoke when I'm smoking, its just nasty, comparable to sticking your mouth to the exhaust of a deisel I'd say.

If someone gets in my face about my smoking I simply tell them this:

I have been shot twice, stabbed twice, been in eighteen vehicle accidents of which the last one I went head-on into a pickup truck while on my motorcycle, and I have been hit by lightning.... something has GOT to eventually kill me and it might as well be something I enjoy!!!!!!! Or maybe it will be the electric chair for going ballistic on some fool who was sticking his/her nose in MY business??????? :ymdevil:
