A smoker who is disgusted with some smokers.

I smoke cigarettes.

I am a smoker.

Here is what I DO NOT do:

1. Smoke around children, especially in indoor spaces.

2. Smoke near doorways of public spaces.

3. Smoke in confined spaces with people who don't smoke.


When I see a person driving down the road with a cigarette in their hand and kids in the car it outrages me. Every summer DH and I drive 22 hours to visit his family and we still never smoke with our kids in the car. We pull over to smoke or smoke at rest stops/fast food parking lots etc.

If I am smoking on a public sidewalk and see a family approaching, I move into the parking lot or away from their path.

Some smokers are inconsiderate or stupid, take your pick. There are smokers who are just as disgusted with their behavior as non-smokers are.

Yup I don't smoke indoors either, don't smoke near doorway or public spaces either, but I will admit I can't help it I smoke in the car.  All windows open and my hand and arm out the window at all times.  Not an excuse but I won't lie I am guilty of it.

I am a smoker and I agree, which is why I keep my yucky habit away from other people, especially kids.

By yourself or with your kids in the car? There is a big difference.

I agree. Last summer we went to this family burger restaurant and when we were leaving, there was this group of teens who were smoking right in front of the entrance/exit. I was like, "Really? I'm a smoker but have respect for others around you". Smh.

It is about respect. Not everyone wants to breathe in smoke.

Maybe I am wierd, but I am a smoker who hates being in a cloud of second-hand smoke too. So if a bunch of my friend's and I are sitting in someone's garage or something smoking and talking I will ask to crack the garage door open to vent the area.

It is gross, but yet I still smoke. I quit about 3 months ago and stayed quit for 2 months... then work got to me.

With my kids.  I am not proud but I will admit this is my one fatal flaw.

my lungs say thank you!  Smoke smell triggers migraines for me, I so appreciate it when people are considerate.
