Would you buy someone cigarettes if they were on oxygen?

This person asked me to pick them up some cigarettes and bring them when I came back the next day. I refused to buy this person cigarettes and he got totally pissy about it. With my bitchy voice I'm like fine, what kind but he snaps back don't worry about. You're sitting there on an oxygen tank and asking me for cigarettes,,,, really?? And you're going to get pissy because I won't get them,,, really?? If you have other people willing to buy them for you and not care that you haven't stopped or slowed down on smoking even after being put on oxygen, what do you need me for? Was I wrong for not just buying them? Or should I stick to my guns since I don't agree with your decision not to try and quit. Even though I did have a lapse and was going to purchase them just to appease them. Would you just buy them no matter what?

  • I took care of a woman who died of third degree burns after she lit herself on fire while smoking with her oxygen on, so no. You want to smoke, fine, but I won't enable you.

  • I would not have bought the cigarettes either. I'm sure there is someone out there who would, but I would just feel weird about it.

  • No. It's actually dangerous to smoke while on oxygen, not to mention that it doesn't help them breathe! They can actually get serious burns.
