    EDIT: Are we only talking about cigarette smoking?

    I smoke, and I respect it if other people choose not to. I will also respect it if someone politely asks me to put it out or move further away. I will be happy to put it out and move it further away if you're a decent human being about it. You jump on my ass with holier-than-thou attitude and condemnation, you will be greeted with the same treatment from me. That's just how I feel about it.

    I've never smoked either. Tried to pick up the habit several times over the last 5 decades, but I seem to have an aversion to nicotine. It makes me sick. If not for that factor, I probably would have started at one point or another.

    Why have you tried to start? A few people I know have tried to get into it because of stress, etc.

    I'm reminded of the saying, "Once you've justified an act once in your mind as okay.. it's infinitely harder to stop it than if you had rejected it from the beginning." .. Or something like that. I feel for the people who are trying to quit, I hear it's extremely difficult.

    People can smoke all they want, but I still view them as weak-willed...and it's such a waste of money. I think you have to be a moron to even start.

    Don't smoke, I do not see the benefit. Would have a very difficult time accepting a partner who did. I don't see reasons for smoking to be justifiable considering the risks and damages. "Oh it gives me something to do while waiting, it relaxes me, good icebreaker/point of identification with others, makes me look cool." Okay, so you're a self conscious, neurotic, restless individual with poor conversational openers and a silly desire to be perceived as interesting so you self "medicate" with a carcinogen? Awesome.

    But to each his own. Those who smoke do not share my criteria for lifestyle decisions, which is certainly not a crime.

    I smoked a cigarette once about 3 months ago and hated it. I've smoked a few cigars and smoke marijuana every so often..but never straight cigs.

    We watched a health documentary on smoking where this lady was addicted and it showed every little bad thing the tobacco was doing to her lungs and how it was killing her. It was scary. But on the other hand..she was addicted..and even quoted as saying she wishes she had never started.

    And this one girl in my class was laughing at her and how stupid she was for continually going outside of another smoke. It really bothered me.

    I have sympathy for smokers, because I know it's so hard to stop. I don't have sympathy for people who are overly-against smoking. To people who have never smoked (myself included), we don't really know what it is like to be addicted, so to criticize others for smoking is completely insane. The human error is actually starting. But once you are addicted, you lose a lot of control even though quitting isn't impossible. So my heart goes out to all of you who are addicted because it must suck.

    I give my respect out to ex-smokers. Those who have gotten the will power to quit. I doubt it's as easy as everyone assumes it to be. If you haven't been addicted, than you can't make such claims.

    And I totally agree with those Truth commercials that are anti-tobacco industry. It's not the smokers fault, per se, but more the fault of the money hungry Tobacco Industries. They put the addictive and life threatening chemicals in cigarettes to do the very things that cigarettes do. Just think of the number of people they've killed.

    I see smoking as a choice. There are so many other things we do that are almost as bad/worse than smoking. It's not for us to say whether something is right or wrong and to some people, smoking is justifiable. But personally, I find it disgusting.

    Don't criticize smokers.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
