    Default Dear smokers!!

    Dear smokers. Feel free to slowly kill yourself (that's your choice) but please be courteous enough to those who value their lives to not smoke at the doorways to shopping centers. I would also like to add that if you choose to smoke in your cars please leave your butts in your cars and bin them properly. Do not appreciate driving behind you as you throw your butts out the window with no care!!

    Thanks to those who use butt containers I can't stand when people just throw them on the ground or out the window.

    My sister had a confrontation with a girl yesterday who was sitting on a pillar in front of the pram parks, smoking. There was a "no smoking" sign directly above her and beside her (not to mention that my sister had her baby DD with her). The result of the confrontation was that the girl didn't care, and continued to sit there for some time.

    It really peeves me off.

    I do that outside at home - I don't smoke anywhere in public

    Can I also just say OP, no offence, but just because someone smokes doesn't mean they *don't* value their life . I have two beautiful kids, a wonderful husband, a loving family and great friends...I absolutely value my life hehe.

    Much appreciated to those who use the containers. One other thing... Isn't it illegal to smoke with minors in your car? If So why is this not being enforced. My mum used to smoke with me and my siblings in the car all the time. When we said things like "we can't breathe please put it out" her response was, " wind down your window then!". Kids don't have the authority to stop this so it would be appreciated of our law enforces did so

    Confucius, chances are that law wasn't around when you were a child Unless you're actually a 5-year-old

    Sorry to hear your Mum did that I hope it does get enforced now that it is actually illegal.

    Littering of any kind is revolting, but honestly, can we just lay off the smoker bashing all the time?

    Because it's such a beneficial, positive habit?

    My parents did the same to us, then threw their cigarette out the window, which would often just come into our window (being open so we could breathe!) and burn us. Argh. If my children ever asked me to not do something that could affect them, I would listen and respect that. DF always says that if I were to get a cancer related to passive smoking, he would want to sue my parents for damages, lol.

    But yes, there is a law that you can't smoke in cars with anyone under the age of 18 and it is enforced.
