Do you see smoking parents as "low class?"

I will admit I do. I know it is an addiction, but it is also a terrible example. I saw several smokers at the pumpkin patch today. Just looks bad, and smells worse. I grew up with parents who were chain smokers and I can't stand it.

  • no i dont, i think more about the way that they treat and talk to their children to judge class. lots of parents smoke but never around kids, just so you know.

  • I agree with you. In this day and age when we all know how bad smoking is, why would people keep doing it?
    I think it is selfish and dumb to keep smoking when you have kids.

  • I never said it wasn't my "problem." It does happen to be my opinion. I think drinking should be discreet and explained to children. I am not an at home drinker. I just asked this question to see what others thought. I'm not saying my view is correct, right, or fair, but it is mine.

  • No but I see it as ignorant and weak now that ppl know what it can do and that they can get help getting free from that addiction
