Do you smoke?

I don't smoke , am allergic to cigarette , cigar, pipe smoke. Even if I weren't allergic , I would not smoke. If I smell smoke in a restaurant or diner, I walk out, I refuse to eat there. Some places say they have a no smoking area but it usually not far enough away from the non smoking area. When I eat , I want to be able to savor my meal not smoke.

Yes I smoke, but never in a restaurant. I don't like to mix smoke with my food and don't like to eat in a place filled with smoke.
You wouldn't believe the number of filters around my house, or how often I take my smokes outside and away from the family.
Most people who come into my house have no idea there is a smoker in the house. I am hoping soon I will be able to get a prescription for the inhaler, the patch and gum already failed.

Nope. My dad did, and I watched him choke to death for about 5 years before he finally died.

I smoked for about 10 years but quit in 1990. I can't stand being in smoke-filled restaurants, either.

I smoke, but here in Ohio we can no longer smoke inside any public building. There was a huge hoopla about it when this law passed. Most bars felt that they would lose a lot of business. But I think most people find it refreshing to into restaurants and only have it be non-smoking. I don't mind as I never sat in the smoking section anyways.

Same here, Illinois is smoke free in public establishments. I voted for it.

Okay, here goes........NO!!! LOL
As of 2 weeks today, no, I do not smoke.

But, I never liked being in a smokey area! My sisters and I ALWAYS ask for no smoking section. DH and I did not smoke in our house. I smoked in my car, but, had to roll down the window the whole time, not matter the weather, I couldn't stand the smoke, yeah, WEIRDO!! LOL

I smoke but I wish I didn't. It's way too much trouble because I only smoke outside. Sometimes when I'm sitting outside smoking in the freezing rain I really think I'm crazy!
