I can't even stand to eat with someone smoking by me, makes me sick. Weird, I know.
Good for you, texas - - No, you're not weird. I remember when I smoked I hated breathing other peoples' smoke, too - - LOL.

And one of my BIGGEST peeves (forgot about this on that other thread we had) is when smokers don't completely snuff out their cigarette when they just push them down into an ashtray that happens to be near ME. That's just nasty.

Keep up the good work. I was most amazed that I didn't get out of breath as easily... and almost right away! I was living in a 3rd floor apartment at the time (no elevator) and the difference was almost immediate.

Don't worry about it GB . You didn't discourage me. Thank you again....

I really wonder about it...I'm growing impatient to taste especially.

I've never had a lit cigarette in my hand. I'm allergic to smoke.

Good luck to those trying to quit, congrats to those who've succeeded. One thing that rather cracks me up ... I may have missed it, but no one mentioned my pet peeve is smokers who light up in the bathroom. The smell of cigarette smoke and less pleasant bodily emanations is truly putrid. It particularly bothers me when I've actually provided (and I do) a pleasant enough place for smokers to congregate, but they hide out in my bathroom. I've found that the offenders were usually friends of my parents, usually people hiding the fact that they haven't REALLY quit from their supposedly delusional spouse (I mean, seriously, you can only hide some things from a spouse who doesn't want to see it, then it really doesn't matter). Luckily, that hasn't happened in years, so I only run into it in public restrooms.
