But with cigarettes lingering between their fingers or pipes perched between their lips, their images are repulsive.



"Cherubic" and "ringlets" make me puke a lot harder than "cigarettes" and I don't smoke.

No one seemed particularly concerned with kids smoking cocane base rolled up in leafs in a village in South America where drug cartels were churning out the stuff. The villagers got the leftover residue.

Besides, I'm tired of anti-smoking fanatics.

sorry, but i don't find children inherently innocent or beautiful, and neither do i find smoking inherently repulsive. i'd certainly rather hang out with a bunch of smokers than a bunch of kids.


This.
The article was written with just a few too many words like "vulgar" and "repulsive".

A smoking child is a bit sad, but they're only art pieces, not vulgar. But hey, at least the artist isn't being protested for sexualizing these children(yet).

People crusade against smoking the way they used to crusade against sexual freedom(and some still do). When they start using the same words as those more aged campaigns, the moral/religious/social motivation surfaces, making it needlessly a more serious issue more akin to:

1.bp.blogspot.com

Than anything of normal educational value coupled with allowing for freedom of choice. [Meaning that everything we do is a danger, food, "chemicals" in everything you consume, wear, make your house out of, furnish your house with, heat your house with, run your car on, etc etc.] No one is innocent of exposing themselves to something.

Anyone who goes on that much of a slant against smokers is like an extreme vegan wearing a fur coat, leather shoes/upholstery. In the end it always loos like they've got a "cause" and enjoy the feeling of pride of being "right" more than anything resulting from the actual topic/discussion.

So, yeah, it's like the internet.

I don't know, I can see a case for limits on smoking in certain settings based on the health hazard it presents to those around you. Granted, most anti-smokers fall under your description, but it seems like there's a middle ground between "OMG cancersticks!@!@!!111" and "We're all gonna die anyways man".

Exactly, when you're in public, smoking is douchey because there are a hell of a lot of non-smokers that hate the stank. If you wanna get cancer at home, go right ahead, that's your thing, but just because I have to ride the subway with you doesn't mean I want to smell like ass like you do.

Define public. A lot of people equivocate here. Inside the courthouse is "public", but so are national parks, where there may not be someone for miles.

As long as one isn't making a mess of their surroundings, or in an enclosed place(obviously, smoking in most buildings is not cool, or even some crowded outdoor areas), smoking in "public" should be fine. But it's not. That's the dividing barrier between the rational an non-rational non-smoker. A lot of smokers say, "I want to smoke in public" and the non-smoking zealots say that smoking in the hospitals cancer ward is a "public" place, therefore you are an asshole who's opinion doesn't count. That's obviously not what the smoker means.

If one is smoking in a truly public area, like a beach, and managing their cig butts in container, and no one near for say, 20 feet. That should be ok, but they will get more dirty looks and snide remarks than the people leaving empty beer bottles/cans or even diapers from their kids behind on the beach(unless those pigs smoke as well), and it's constant.
_______________________________
Further not related to the actual article.
Exception being, banning smoking in bars with legislation I dislike, they're only "public" on a technicality, they still are places of private business where by and large, they retain the right to run the place how they want, to allow drunk assholes, or cut people off at 2 drinks, cutting into what they want to do with their business is not kosher, imo.

Let the business owner decide(or in places where there are enough businesses, issue the 2 types of alcohol licences at a ratio of 50% that way there will always be somewhere for both parties to go). These places are meant for consumption of things that are quite obviously not healthy. I look at it this way, if it's known to be a place where people do a lot of smoking(or drinking), one who dislikes being around people doing that, maybe just shouldn't go.

IMO, a large part of those bans are resultant from people that never go to bars in the first place being able to vote on the issue. That's what happens when democracy micromanages with legislation, freedom inevitability loses.

/anyhow, that's all, I know it's not popular opinion, but it's got to be said now and again

I love smoking on pedestrian malls. The best part? Waiting for the WALK signal at crowded intersections! The way people cough and choke is fantastic, and the occasional "pew!" is glorious. The funny thing, is they only react if they see me smoking, not by the smell. I can stand directly behind them, puffing away, and no one notices. I've taken to flicking my Zippo a few times just to get their attention and then... BAM! Instant hacking!

The funny thing is... I don't smoke anymore. I switched to an electronic cigarette early last year. It's odorless, and I now use the nicotine-less cartridges. Hell, I've even done this little social experiment with candy cigs and still get the same reaction. People are too eager to be offended.

I've smoked two packs a day since I was thirteen, and I can still run a mile in under ten minutes. Some people can smoke and it doesn't affect them. Others develop lung cancer within two or three years. I don't know how it works exactly, other than genetics, but I'm glad I'm on this side of the continuum. And most people wouldn't die of smoking if they'd quit at the first signs of trouble. Unfortunately, most people smoke right on through their treatment, wondering "why am I not getting better? Why, doctor, WHY!" Idiots. Sometimes I wish people like that were lighting a fuse instead of a cigarette.

My father, the 2-3 pack a day smoker, dropped dead at age 53. My mother, the 2 pack a day smoker, got heart bypass, at age 62, and could never catch her breath again, died two years later. I had no parents by the time I was 25 (mother had me at 40).

I suppose a park where no one else can smell your crap is fine, but the problem is there are way too many assholes who do not distinguish and would not hesitate to blow a huge smoke cloud in the park while sitting on a bench next to a lady with a baby. Sadly for you smokers, a few bad apples are ruining your outdoor public places for you. But I also hate those who self-righteously condemn it at all - again, if you wanna kill yourself, wtf say do I have in it? My opinion on smokers is exactly the same as my opinion on everything; if your actions are pissing people off and/or really inconveniencing or harming them, knock it off. Or, because Murderface said it best, "don't be a dick - be a dude."

It's silly to attack tobacco companies or tobacco, but that doesn't make smoking any less sad or repulsive. Mental illness is a serious problem for us at this stage in our evolution as a species. Psychology remains relegated to the arts, and the study of human behavior is remiss to make many strides as a hard science. Still, most people would agree that, as addictions go, smoking is pretty much a cry for help and a constant reminder of self-hatred.

I've been a smoker for almost 20 years and I have always tried to be considerate when smoking in public (i.e., exhaling away from people, standing downwind, etc). And I have run into very few problems.

Can't we all just get along?

People hate addictions and lack of self control. It's pathetic to observe actually, when a grown adult "just can't stop" doing something. The saddest part is watching them try to quit, only to start puffing/drinking/snorting again the next day.
