    I voted the last option because I hate people smoking around me and I think smoking is a stupid, disgusting, and often inconsiderate thing to do.

    But I have to clarify that I don't think smokers are dumb or shallow or self-conscious, just unwise. And everyone's unwise in some areas.

    And I don't particularly care if people I don't care about want to smoke somewhere where I can't smell the smoke. Ehh maybe I should've voted option 2. Too late.

    None of the options are applicable to me. Next.

    Protest.

    Impersonally, I'm not sure of any real benefit to smoking besides enjoying the taste/experience.

    Personally, I have mild asthma; my father always used to smoke around me all the time as a kid despite my protests; and I can still smell someone light up in the space of a few seconds across a crowded restaurant (i.e., I find the smell annoying and intrusive, because everyone nearby is basically smoking your cigarette along with you)... but I do not see smokers as being particularly stupid or needing to look cool.

    So a no vote here.

    It does nothing for me when I'm sober.
