Captain Obvious strikes again. I always have an urge to punch heads of all smokers in public so far down their throats they'd have to remove their pants next time they want to read. Unfortunately, my physique doesn't permit that sort of behavior.

Arm yourself with a Hand Fan, and don't be shy or hesitates to use it whenever there some smokers' smokes are flying at your direction.

So before this, someone actually believed that something that kills humans, maybe ok for other living creatures? Idiots.

I did. Unfortunately I still smoke but I will not subject my pets to it. It all goes outside whether it's raining or 20 degrees out.

You are mighty cool. ;)

Smoking should be totally banned. It's not only killing smokers but those people and pets around them. To do that is just wrong.

High fat/sugar/salt foods should be banned. It's not only killing people, but it is putting strain on the healthcare system by tying up medical staff with lifestyle diseases and it is costing the taxpayer millions.

Alcohol should be totally banned. not only is it killing the drinker, but alcohol leads to accidents and anti-social behaviour which put strain on our emergency services and police forces. This is a waste of taxpayer money.

Just sayin'.

Same here. I have not smoked AT ALL in my home since I moved in over 6 years ago now. It actually grosses me out when I go to someones home who does smoke inside it, and as stated, I am a smoker.

I know it is the dumbest thing I do. I know I need to quit. And I absolutely know to never smoke around pets. That is just common sense, smoker or not.
I actually do not even let my dog come up and kiss me if I have been outside smoking, and make sure to go wash my hands and face until he does, I am that conscience of it.

I swear, sometimes scientists just like wasting piles of cash just so they can state the bleedin' obvious...

They have to get paid for something so it might as well be something obvious and doesn't take too much work for them.
