I know a variety of smokers from varied walks of life (nuns, professors, contractors, musicians, grandparents and non-profit employees)... why should someone else's vice bother me? It's none of my business
people are people, man... if they're not interfering with you why is it your job to judge them?
Well, we have banned smoking indoors and outdoors because smoke bothers other people.
Smoking is not a solitary activity. It poisons the lungs of all those around whether they are babies or innocent bystanders.
yes, but you're taking the tone of "if a smoker smokes a cigarette in the middle of the forest, you shall judge them for it"... there's a difference between disliking smoking and judging everyone who smokes... I have friends and family who have lifestyle choices I don't like, and I still think that they're decent people. Broad sweeping generalizations like stating that everyone who smokes is a teenage girl, alcoholic, petty criminal or mentally ill is completely rediculous... Barack Obama is a pretty upstanding citizen, for instance
