My freedom is lost right now!!!! I should have the freedom to gointo any
public place and not breath in tocic fumes. I want freedom, I am not
Have it where it doesn't affect other people. If tobacco was introduced
today it would be put in the same category as heroin. That is reason enough
for a total ban alone.
You don't enjoy a cigarette, you assume please from the withdrawal symptoms.
You are right. About the thing you have been right on. So, ban it from
public places, all forms of sponsorship and advertising, have it in white
packs, as it is when you buy any drug, and have it sold from only special
outlets to peopel with IDs, as in Utah for alcohol., although I do not
advocate selling alcohol like they do. Take the glamour out of smoking.

But a pub isn't a public place. You have no right to dictate to me whether
I allow smoking in my home, and I have no right to force it upon your
non-smoking household. Neither of us have the right to dictate to a
You said you've never smoked. How can you feel up to the task of commenting
on this? You aren't.
Tobacco is a drug. Drugs bring pleasure. Most of the anti-drug campaigns try
to move focus away from the fact that altered perceptions of reality appeal
to many people, as do the effects of whatever substance they are into.
Didn't you ever make yourself dizzy as a child?
If people didn't enjoy their first smokes, then they won't start. Unless
they are spineless and go on peer pressure. I didn't, I only had my first
smoke at 19 years old, after asking for one. I enjoyed it. I still do. Get
Can you debate something without resorting to insults? Besides, there are
never "rights and wrongs" to most issues, only opinions.
They glamour has already been taken out. Popping out into the rain for a
smoke at work ain't glamorous!
And making the warnings bigger won't make any difference. Do you think there
are any smokers that aren't aware of how bad it can be for you? I'm all for
more age-verification, but the fact is that some retailers don't care.
People should be banned from smoking in their own homes if there are
children in the house. Forcing children to breathe a known very effective
carcinogen, when the alternative of popping outside is available, is child
Doctors do it regularly. (inject morphine into kids)
Its a good pain killer.
Parents regularly give food to their children that
in time will lead to an early death due to heart
disease and obesity.
Smoikuing is a relatively minor issue, but of course, why notr [pick omn
a minority to opprress when you have screwed up the governance iof teh
country and want people looking in the other direction..
Yay!! Let's pass more completely unenforceable laws!! What do you propose to
do? Have special smoke detectors forced upon parents, which get audited
Or, you could get the kids to grass on their parents!! That'll work! It'll
create a lot of resentment and paternal turmoil, but who cares, right!?!
Most parents I know that smoke, don't do it in front their children. No one
ever smokes near my younger relatives either, but this isn't some rule
that's ever been mentioned. It's just the way it's done.
Older folk take longer to change, they are a bit set in their ways. But
every young to middle-age smoker is aware that smoking around kids is a
Sorry to break your hatemongering.
I'd agree with that. I'd rather remove parent's "rights" to withhold medical
treatment from their children, unless there is some degree of uncertainty or
genuine moral choice, such as whether to attempt proceed with invasive
curative treatment or just paliative care in the event of terminal illness.
