  • Cigarette. Because her smoking is immediately affecting others around her...her drinking a beer is not. And also, most people that drink a beer aren't addicted to alcohol, but most ppl that smoke cigarettes do so because of an addiction.

  • cigarettes. I like to enjoy a beer while cooking out and it does not affect my kid. Second hand smoke can hurt my child, however...

  • it really depends on the circumstances. if the kid isnt around, then its about even. if the child is around, ciggs are worse because of secondhand. a single beer could be harmless as long as she is at home/not going to drive.

  • Cigarette is so much worse. One beer is not going to make someone drunk and it's not like there are fumes coming off a beer that can get a kid drunk who is standing nearby or being held. The cigarette is way worse. Everyone knows, for an absolute fact, that second-hand smoke kills.
