    I just like that teenage girls are thrown in with the rest of that seedy crew.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    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.

    It does give a certain frisson.

    It is common decency to avoid smoking near others who don't wish to be around it, yes...

    Yes, we can't smoke now at outdoor cafes.

    And it's interesting that it will not be policed by the Police but by ordinary citizens. We all seem to have agreed that smoking is no good for you.

    The only people who smoke now are teenage girls, the mentally ill, alcoholics, the drug addicted, and interestingly, petty criminals.

    Are you a teenage girl, mentally ill, alcoholic, drug addicted or a petty criminal and do you smoke?
    I'm none of those, and I do smoke yes.

    Just look at the two kissing seals in your avatar, and I can hear one of them thinking, "Whoever's lips touch tobacco, shall not touch mine".

    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...

    You're only an upstanding citizen if you don't get caught.

    You could make the argument that any one who smokes regularly is a drug addict so it's hard to argue against the original point.

    I used to smoke but no longer do.
