Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
alright...
how about smokers ?
as background, when i am out, if i even see a woman smoking my head will turn just like to the opposite side of the room(kinda embarrasing when i am in the corner, but hey).
Does anyone else like just dislike smokers, in the personal relational sence ?, or am i just me ?

    Na your just being a dick. Most people dont smoke because they think its cool and who do you think you are to judge.

    I'd challenge that actually... Most people start smoking because they think it's cool!

    In the first part of the last century cigarettes were advertised as the cool thing to do, it's only in the last 30 or so years that the dangers have been recognised.

    I have just given up smoking for about the 5th time and tis time I hope it lasts.

    When I was a child both my parents smoked and out of the three kids I was the only one who didn't smoke in my teens. All through school and university I was offered fags by friends and I resisted. Then I met my smoker boyfriend and started hanging out with his smoker friends and purely because I was weak, thought it looked good and felt left out I started smoking. I did it through peer pressure...to join in.

    In 2000 my otherwise fit and healthy dad died of a massive sudden heart attack. The only hting that the doctor could attribute it to was his heavy smoking. He was 56, still fairly young.

    My friends mother (53) has just been rushed to hospital for an emergency brain operation, her consistently bad health has been attributed to her heavy smoking habit.

    Basically people...do what you want , smoke what you want but you have to recognise that smoking causes a huge amount of illness and puts a massive strain on NHS resources.

    I hope I never smoke again and so far it's been about 6 weeks without a single puff but I know that the addiction is strong and I could be pulled right back in again.

    I don't want to be laid up at 50 or 60 or even 90 with drips and bed baths and thrombosis, a massive burdon on my family and the NHS.

    Whats so great and exciting about sucking tar and smoke into your lungs, swallowing it then breathing it out again!! it makes no sense really.

    I can proudly state I have never smoked one cigarette in my whole life <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> I hate the smell that gets in your hair and your clothes. The smell it puts on people's breath is nasty too. However, most of my friends do smoke and I don't really have a problem with people who do. The one thing that bugs me is people who smoke when I'm eating (excluding smoking areas in restaurants..obviously!) I'm still contemplating whether to state on my uni housing app whether I object to living with smokers. If I say I do do you think I'll limit myself to living with one kind of person?

    yeah byny i smoked and have quit the past few weeks but it doesn't mean that people that smoke should be treated any different or put down just because they do.
    Some start cuz they thinks its cool others maybe because they think it relax's them there's loads of reasons so dont be so narrow minded

    The taste of a nicotine filled men is not a nice one to have in your mouth after a snog, and, like garlic, the only way to eliminate such problems , is to have a couple of draws yourself. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Personally I hate people who smoke while people are eating <IMG SRC="mad.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> , or during sessions at my local. It's just impolite <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">. I dont smoke much myself, only as a kind of companionshippy thing <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Hmmm, it's hard to judge why people smoke. A lot of people do smoke to be cool, some people start because of stress (like I did) and some people just enjoy a nice fag.

    Too true. I hate it when I go out [especially when I've done my hair!] and wake up with the smell of smoke on my pillow. And my clothes too.
    But I think it's even nastier when you kiss someone who has been smoking - been there, done that, never want to do it again ta very much.

    Well, I hate smoking, it is anti social and disgusting. My mother smokes and I think it is awful. People are just stupid if they willingly kill themselves slowly everyday.

    It annoys me that people then go and sue tobacco companies when they get sick later in life, as if they never had any idea that smoking god knows what could be harmful.

    People are entitled to smoke, but I think they should do it away from people who don't. After all, they are the ones who are causing the problems. Why should non smokers be made to feel bad because we don't want to smell as a result of someone else smoking?

    Ugh! It annoys me so much when smokers get on their high horses saying they have a right to smoke, yes you do...but we also have a right not to smoke and not to be affected by your smoke.

    I so agree with BumbleBee here, my mum smokes and I hate it, 1 of my mates does 2 and only to look cool in front of guys! I couldn't go out with a smoker and neither could my bf in-fact he said he'd dump me if I started and I don't blame him.
    It is up to ppl whether they decide to destroy their insides slowly, but don't do it round me.

    Hey it's kinda cool to see that most of the young people on this thread don't smoke. Good for you <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    When I was at school you were considered a freak if you didn't smoke and most of them did start because it *supposedly* made them look cool.

    I took up smoking for about a month and I hated it. It made me vomit quite a lot, so I reckoned regularly and violently upchucking didn't really look all that cool, so I stopped. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I don't like it, I smoked cigars for a month or so when I first turned 16, just cause I wanted to try it.. bit sad really..

    I have a great preferance that anyone I go for doesn't smoke (sex/relationship wise) it doesn't always happen but I like to hope.

    I prefer people not to smoke, its better that way in my opinion, even if a lot of my friends do it...

    The only time I do smoke is when I get stoned which isn't that often and we never mix it with tobacco so I suppose thats something... <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I'm a non-smoker as well + i really can't stand it when there are lots of smokers around ... my eyes sting, i feel sick and as soon as you leave, you end up stinking like you've just jumped into an ashtray!

    I would never go out with a smoker, purely because this habit really puts me off people.

    Yes, it's fine for whoever wants to smoke but i don't like the way many people don't consider how their smoke might affect other people.

    Quite simply, I agree with Bumblebee. People who smoke and then sue tobacco companies are up there in terms of stupidity with a Spanish teacher who can't speak Spanish.

    My dad has smoked ever since I can remember. I love the man to bits, but I can't stand him smoking. What makes it worse is that he just refuses to stop. It isn't that he can't, it's that he WON'T. And that's what makes me angry. My sister has a chest problem, and it is triggered if she's in an environment with smokers. Does my dad stop for hs daughter? Like hell he does! But my dad's best mate's wife has asthma. Funnily enough, when they come round, my dad's fags disappear.

    Anyone who thinks smoking is cool needs to have their head examined. Slowly. Without anaesthetic.

    I said that i would wait to reply to this slander on my name,(since i am a newbie and all(hmm) <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">) until others reacted to the topic.
    *me pauses again and looks at beatnusoon*

    From what i see alot of people, might just be the average of people that are reading this board ?, are with me with the points i say.
    any way, since i am a newbie, and i obviously was being a dc*k i,d like to publically apologise.
    (beatnusoon you dont need to apologise, (and embarrase yourself in public here), hm).


    any way, again...
    When i am out as i said, if she has a "fag" in the hand, i just like look away. i was told that its just that im too picky, i dont know. maybe. hm.

    I've tried it once when I was about 4 (my dad gave me a fag to try), after the first drag, I never like it and never pick up another cig again.

    I personally don't mind making friends or talking to people who smoke, but as to having a relationship with a smoker, it's a no no for me.

    It's not because I judge the people who smoke, but because I choose not to have relationship with people who smoke. It's like some of you might not date people who swear.
