generally , i have a distaste for smokers as i don't like the smell of the smoke. i always hate those smokers in public.we are breathing in second-hand smoke which i believe is much more harmful than what the smokers are taking in. what about you?

Well really it is their business what they do to their own bodies. Just as long as it is not something that is done around me. Because as you stated, second hand smoke can be rather dangerous. It is a frustrating thing to deal with and smokers tend to act like you are restricting their lives a lot of the time, when you ask them kindly not to smoke around you. Still again, if people want to smoke in an area where others are not, then go knock yourself out. It is your life, your body. Just don't be around me. Of course, I really cannot understand a lot of the time why people do in fact smoke. It is a disgusting, disgusting habit all things considered and just being near smoke gives me headaches. So yeah, people do some things in their life that I don't like.

I don't smoke and thats what I like in Singapore when I was there twice last year. However, my bf smokes and he said he is willing to quit smoking for me but I have to help him with it.

I hate smoker that smoke in public places. It is so annoying when you go by some public transports,like bus, or when you go to cafe and then there's someone smokes near you. Ugh, i hate it.. And you're right, passive smoker (second-hand) has bigger risk than active smoker.

Well I smoke, in public too, just not around anyone. People who smoke in front of other people who smoke definitely are rude for it, that's a given. Although second-hand smoke being worst than the smoke the person who is smoking isn't true, obviously. I mean, the person who is smoking gets the smoke that they're smoking and the second-hand smoke too, because they're right there with you. So that's pretty much proof that what you're getting when you're inhaling second hand smoke isn't worst than what they're getting. Becuase they're getting both, second and first. Although it is still rude for the person to smoke around you anyway. You didn't ask for the tabacco smoke, they did, and they're just forcing it on you. A very rude thing to do. Of course it's still worse for them, but like I said, that is their choice, not yours.
