I don't smoke, never did. However, my ex-wife does even though her Father passed away because of lung related illness. I truly hated the smell of my daughters' clothes when they would come visit me on weekends, thanks God, they live with me now.

Yes, I smoke.
But I have cut down to 2 per day when I am at home. When I go out at night or while I am travelling(my other hobby besides cooking) I smoke more than that.

I am a smoker. I do not smoke in my house since my son is asthmatic.
I smoke in my car, but not when my son is in the car. And the window
is down when I do smoke.

I smoke Carlton 100's...have for over 30 years. I believe them when they say there is no safe cigarette, but with 1 mg tar and 0.1 mg nicotine, it has 1/17 the amount of the bad stuff that Marlboro Reds have.
One thing about it...NOBODY ever bums a cigarette from me.

No, I used to, but quit 6 years ago. Nothing worse than a reformed smoker, I hear. I cannot stand the smell. If I'm driving in my car with the windows open and the guy in the car in front of me is smoking, I can smell it! There is a local liquor store that I cannot shop in because the staff, who cannot smoke in the store, all smoke in the store room. The entire shop stinks.

In NJ and NY you cannot smoke in any public building, anywhere, including restaurants. Yay! The shore areas I frequent have even designated the sand as a smoke free area. Most of the boardwalk is smoke free, too! I always hate sitting outside and trying to enjoy the fresh air and having to smell someone's cigarettes.

Another reason not to smoke. I just read this in my new magazine yesterday. Cigarette smoking quadruples the chances that you'll develop age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over 55.
