I agree, people gets easily hysterical. And I purposely chose to compare smoking to eating fat foods as we are one of the fattest country in the world so we can hardly go all arm up in the air about smoking being so unhealthy.
And don't get me started on our carbon emissions....!!

It stinks and it's a gross habit. But until it's altogether banned (which I'm actually for, bc smokers pay a fortune in tax to the govt but have no rights left) and she was the correct distance away on her break, she had a right to be there. In the year I've given up I think *honestly* I've walked through 2 smoke clouds for 5 secs.
If someone is blowing smoke in a child's face then that is completely out of order. But there is a big gap between that and an employee on their break having a fag metres away that you get a wiff of. When I've been to the big cities the smell and fumes never fails to shock me. Millions and millions of people live their lives in that. Every day. Yet people become so furious over a wiff of smoke? I think context is important here. If it was a parent sitting in their car smoking with kids in there with the windows up I'd be right there with you all in outrage.

So we shouldn't worry about secondhand smoking being an issue because there's so many other things causing more harm...?
