Ah ok I come across like a matron. But seriously sick child outside gp queing and these selfish dicwads are blowing smoke all over her. Just no consideration for anyone else. Even when smoking was highly fashionable ye would give consideration to lighting up beside a child

Yes it was hard to give up. Long time now but I don't envy anyone starting.

It is something we would all be better off without.

Yep absolute worst . I gave up so can you attitude.
Would never pick up the one to end up back on them. I can say that in complete confidence. I've been bereaved. I've been drunk. Nothing makes me want to go back to that habit.

And more likely to catch something inside the GP's office than from a billow of a smoker

The child already has something. That's why we're there. Regardless of the rest of the world around her do you honestly believe she should be exposed to cigarette smoke? Do you not think maybe the adult who chooses to smoke should be the one to move away ?

Who was there first - if it bothers you then move a few feet the other way
When you walk down the street do you expect every smoker to give you 6 foot clearance because you have a sign around your kids neck saying "I'm ill"

Take our 10 packs and force us to buy 20 a day for habit, then keep winding the price up and up and up. Yeah forgive me but I couldn’t give a flying **** what non smokers think, you don’t like people smoking outside then **** off somewhere else. Simple.

Yes. Quite honestly I would do that if I was the one smoking

The Smoking Forum isn't for non-smokers to complain about smokers. This angry and pointless thread is a good illustration of why.

Always read the Charter before posting.
