Re: Do you smoke?

Have been known to smoke VERY occasionally. Sometimes a cigar.....

But my body being the temple that it is ( ) the smoking is getting more and more infrequent.

I wonder how many people actually smoke in their AR
It seems a long time since youve read on a car ad "one owner, non-smoker" or something along those lines. I guess its just modern times.

If you don't like it, don't go out in smoky environments.

IMHO we shouldn't think this way but the other way around.

Well said Hugo.
It should be up to the polluters to stop polluting, not the victims to avoid the polluted area. Especially when there are no pubs you can go in whih aren't polluted.

Re: Do you smoke?

So then how come you drive a car on the road according to your theory - people who walk/cycle should avoid walking on a pavement next to a road to avoid the pollution from a car.

If you don't like something you avoid it. Legal or non legal.

I'm trying to quit after 15 Years of smoking.
Never smoked in my cars or in the house though. ZA also has strict anti-smoking laws. No smoking in public buildings etc.
I am down to about 5 a day from 20 a few months ago. Decided to use a good program instead of going "cold-turkey", and it seems to work well. The only problem is that I still smell awfull................

The problem is, you can't avoid it. The majority of the population don't smoke, but to go out at night the majority has to suffer the consequences of the minority's bad habit. Smoking is purely done for the pleasure of the user. Car use, generally speaking isn't (yeah, I know, you're an Alfa owner ). Besides, forgetting about the health issues, car fumes and the smell from cars are barely ever irritants - the smoke form cigarettes is a constant irritant as well as a constant stink that sticks to clothes, hair and skin.

Re: Do you smoke?

I don't understand why no-one has opened a non-smoking pub if there are that many people who can't stand the smoke in pubs. I don't see why I should have to suffer because there are people there who don't like smoke. We should have smoking pubs and non-smoking pubs.

More seriously though, there should be better ventilation. I think if places had been more sensible about smoking to start with, then we might not have got to the situation of banning it altogether.
