OK I know how obnoxious smoking and smokers can be because I smoked for decades. Never smoked inside my house. Quit for the last time several months ago for a health reason. So now, I hate cigarette smoke because it isn't pleasant if you don't smoke. But I can figure a way to move so I don't have to breathe it. Cigarette smoking is highly addictive and incredibly hard to quit. Even though I will probably never smoke again in my life I know that not a day will go by that I won't want a smoke. With that said, the anti-smoker contingent is so fucking rude and dismissive of those who are hooked, they are disgusting. Be kind, help them out but don't just dismiss them as less than human as you have no fucking idea what they are going through. Assholes.
