Actually I cant smell. I had a lot of sinus issues as a kid and they had to go in there and clean out a bunch of polyps. As collateral damage, my olfactory nerves got killed too. I'll buy us both some burritos and we'll see who's ass gets louder. Hint: it will be me.

Cigarette smoke meanwhile makes it very hard for me to breathe Razz

Only if your air doesn't overlap with mine. As far as I am concerned a nonsmokers right to breathe clean air supersedes a smokers privilege to pollute his own.

Your right to do what you want to do with yourself extends as far as it doesn't infringe on anyone else. Namely when you start polluting the air that you and another person share, unless they want to or are okay with the smoke, you are infringing on their simple right to breathe.

You damned smokers need to get over yourselves and realize that fact.

I wish I was. I really do. I cant smell ANYTHING. Sure, I wont notice your chili farts, but I also don't know what a beautiful woman smells like, I haven't been able to enjoy freshly cut grass or flowers or what a freshly rained on landscape smells like since before the procedures, and my sense of taste is shot to hell too because what everyone calls taste is actually the scent of the food wafting from your mouth to your nose as you eat it, so all I get is taste-bud taste and texture. My favorite kind of pudding btw is tapioca just because its the only one that doesn't seem like a bland sweetened pile of goo. I can smell just about as good as Hellen Keller could see or hear, and while not nearly as crippling, I am missing a whole dimension of life that everyone else gets to enjoy. Also I can never live anywhere that has natural gas anything because I would never be able to detect it.

On RARE occasions I get a sensation of smell for like an hour, but I'm split between those nerves actually working for a little bit, or its something like phantom limb syndrome, where the brain is just making shit up as it goes along. Regardless of that tho it drives me batshit crazy until it goes away because I have long since lost the ability to mentally ignore any smells that somehow show up in my brain.

Nope, it's a free country. Wear a mask if you don't want to breathe smoke. Or stay home with all the windows down and the doors locked.

Not nearly as free as it was. There's these people, see, and they keep chipping away at our freedoms... For our own good of course. There are some 'freedoms' they don't mind, mostly the types that aren't threatening. They don't think we're smart enough or tough enough to take care of ourselves & that the world would be a better place if we just let them wrap it in bubble wrap. Oh, and they want to be in charge.

There are other people who say they want to help, but they're just as bad, because all they really want is to not have to pay taxes even though they have so much more than most of us in this country. They want to be in charge too. I guess they also would guarantee us the freedom to starve or work ourselves into early graves, after stacking the deck against us.

It's a fucked up situation.

Here's a better idea, you stay home and smoke and leave the clean air to the rest of us.

You're not gonna win this fight, either on here or out in the real world. Smoking bans are popping up all over the place and it's only a matter of time until the only place you can light up will be in your own home as long as there are no kids around. Is it an encroachment on your right to do what you want? Perhaps. But again we have to rank rights here. In this case the right to breathe is ranked higher than the right to do what you want. Smoking has real consequences to other people. There are people working on technologies that will allow you to confine the effect 100% to yourself and when those solutions come to market, go nuts with them, I wont care. But until then, like I said, my right to breathe clean air is more important than your ability to choose to light up.

It's just common sense, guys. It's about who has authority in a given space.

If you gotta smoke, don't do it in non-smoking spaces.

If you're sensitive to smoke, don't go to spaces where people smoke.

Claiming that everything should be smoke-free or smoker-friendly only proves you're an ass.

It's about being considerate. If someone doesn't want cig smoke all up in their faces then be polite and ask before lighting up. If you're with others who smoke that's one thing but if you're around people who don't have a little respect.

Having been a smoker for 10+ years already I never lit up around others (who may or may not have been smokers themselves) without asking if It's alright with them first.

oh and Hi =D

Bunyip I never viewed this forum as a place to bond. It actually reminds me of us Aussies in part.

We mock and make fun of those that are our "mates".

Yeah, Smotie, that's called "male bonding", (as opposed to "oh I have a tampon in and I'm so emotionally tied to all you estrogen-laden, vagina-posessing illogical trollops that I want to poop my pants").
