I have my own addictions. Go cold turkey from my daily coffee? Hell no!
I just want more smokers (ALL smokers would be even better) to be a little more considerate of those around them who don't smoke.

DF is one of the most considerate smokers I know. We have been together 5 and a bit years, and I didn't know he was a smoker until 2-3 years into our relationship. I still wouldn't know if I hadn't walked outside and caught him smoking
He is embarrassed by it, and hates it, but still enjoys it. That confuses me, but I can't say I've ever really been addicted to anything so I wouldnt really understand it.
I hate smoke. The first 18 years of my life is was subjected to cigarette smoke in my own house, constantly. My very own inconsiderate parents who are very inconsiderate smokers would not consider the health of their children and smoke outside at the very least, we did even ask if they could but we were the ones expected to move? I could smell the crap in my bedroom!
I don't judge smokers, I understand its an addiction and its easy to say 'just quit' but I can only imagine how hard it really is to actually do that. It's gross and I hate it, I hate being subject to it involuntarily, but I can't exactly control peoples actions. The best I can do is speak up, if need be.

Do you know what actually reallllly makes me happy? To know there are cinsiderate smokers, all i ask is that you pass your consideration onto the inconsiderate smokers that are giving you the bad name, if there wasnt so many of them then you wouldnt have the bad name. Nomsie can back me up that where we live there is no such thing as considerate smoker.
And to whoever said about 'living in the big smoke' or whatever it was, i went to melbourne to take a friend to the airport as well as have a look at the queen vic markets and walk upto BDM to get our marriage certificate. We ended up only walkin about 10 metres into the markets because it stank of smoke, we had our DS with us and my friend is pregnant so almost threw up in the gutter because of the smell (she had a throw up bag thingy), then we walked from queen vic markets to BDM which I think was between 1km-2km away. Every 10 foot steps there was a a person standing smoking right outside buildings. Every outside the BDM building where MANY mum's with brand new babies were. So maybe the amount of smokers in big cities may also contribute to the 'big smoke'. We ended up having to do the trip twice because we had left our birth certificates in the car, genius' we are

I'm an ex smoker. Smoked for about 10 years, quit before we had children, started up again between babies, quit again, started again after last child, quit again, and now i'm over it. I won't ever put another cigarette to my mouth again. I hate the smell, the after taste, the cost, the effect on my health, and that of my family (never did it inside or around the children or in the car). I did love the action of smoking, the habit of getting those 5 minutes to myself to have a coffee and a smoke. I no longer drink coffee, or tea, and don't drink alcohol either. None of the things i associated with smoking are relevant to my life any more, i feel no need to poison my lifestyle with it.
Yes, i agree that ex smokers are the most harsh on current smokers, but i also feel that as an ex smoker, i know how a smoker feels, having been there myself. Though, like anything in life, you can tell someone until you're blue in the face how wrong something is, but it's up to the individual to see it for themselves. Until they see it, nothing will change and arguing about it is just wasted energy. Every smoker know's how bad it is for them.
