  • Nope!!! I am a smoker but even when Im outside in the open air I still walk away from children!!!

  • Absolutely not! It's one thing if they're playing outside at a far enough distance from the smoker, but if the person smoking has a kid in one arm and holding a cig with the other, that's just wrong.

  • i don't let anyone smoke in my house, and try to keep them away from smoking even outside, but they are my kids. what they do with their own kids is not my business

  • NO!! Even if you smoke outside and in the direction of the wind, the smoke is still on your breath, on your clothes and in your hair, and when your little one snuggles up next to you, they are breathing in the unfiltered smoke, so it's not any better to smoke outside.

  • No. My daughter has horrible asthma and even third hand smoke makes her wheezy. I cringe when we have to go into a store and there are smokers in front of the entrance.
