I don't think you understand how hard it is to quit, many people want to but find it very hard to. Stop being so judgemental and try to understand that not all smokers are completely evil monsters who smoke to piss people off.

@17: No one said quitting was easy. But it's worth doing for your own health (and your family's health). It's a gradual and frustrating process that is intimidating to start. Which is why some people need a little nudge... like for instance getting splatter bombed by a seagull.

"quitting is hard" isn't an excuse not to quit. Sure, it is difficult, but I would think your own health and not dying and crap is important enough to do something difficult. Not to mention saving tons of money.

#1: I'm against smoking too; I never have and never will, but it's a choice. Telling them to stop is almost like saying to them "stop drinking coffee" or "stop watching TV".

#26 it was meant more as an encouragement than an order.

And by the way, drinking coffee doesn't jeopardize other people's health.
It also, in most cases, coffee doesn't produce offensive smell ... On the contrary, most people actually enjoy the smell of freshly brewed coffee.
Watching TV also typically only harms the watchers mental wellbeing, unless it's an older person turning the set up loud enough for the whole neighborhood to enjoy it :-)

Quitting to smoke isn't difficult at all.
It's the not letting yourself do it again part that is the worst.
Seen it in my family and friends many times.
Even cancer can't make people stop for good all by itself.

What if you can't move away because they're smoking in a public place such as at a bus stop or by some outdoor seating at a restaurant? They should be more considerate and move, not the other way round!


#42 then they should be banned from having pets and kids of any kind. They cannot "just stay away". If the person is single, not a parent, and doesn't have animals, then it's completely their choice. Otherwise, they are being completely irresponsible and they're completely at fault. Quitting is difficult, it's true. But smoking on a beach? Endangering sentient beings that had no say in the decision for said person to smoke? If they're only endangering their own life- I'm totally with you. Otherwise, I think OP needs someone to help make decisions in their life.


I smoked for 15 years and quit 25 years ago, when I realized I was spending the equivalent of a new Gibson Les Paul Standard every year on tobacco. These days I enjoy the 24/7 benefits of not smoking a lot more than I ever did the 5 minute bump I got from a cig. It's hard to quit any drug but it is well worth doing. Not preachin', not judgin', just sayin'.
