How many smokers do you know and what state are you in?

people some times dont believe me when I say I do not know one single person (that I socialize with) that smokes. My kids RARELY see a smoker unless we are traveling. But CA (Im in a So. Cal.) has such strict smoking laws that you just dont see it... unless it is in an area with tourists.

But when we travel to the mid west it seems EVERY one smokes. Or at least a HUGE number of people.

So I would love to see what your experiences are.

  • I live in Milwaukee and almost every person I know has smoked at one time. Many have quit so now I would say the majority are non-smokers.

  • I live in Kansas and I know a lot of smokers. Both of my sisters, my parents, my brother-in-law, my nieces, and my nephew, all smoke. On my side of the family, I am the only one that doesn't smoke. I know where I work there is a lot of smokers as well. They are always going outside for smoke breaks.

  • I'm in Alberta, Canada & I know a LOT of smokers. My roommate smokes (ouside) and a fair amount of my friends, though I never see those friends. My son's dad smokes & so does most of his family, though never around my son. Parts of my family do too.
