Well, today one of my friends asked me this question.

I know some smokers at my school are being treated unfairly by other people. I actually saw some people staring at smokers and whispering to their friends.

I personally think that smokers are not treated unfairly.

I mean they know the problems with smoking. I personally hate the cigarette smoke.

I wonder why do they even smoke. I mean cigarette contain tobacco which contains nicotine. Smoking also increases the risk of getting heart attack, emphysema, cancer, COPD and so on. And it's a waste to spend your money on cigarette. Well, I don't really care if those smokers get diseases but they are the ones who cause second-hand smoke. Moreover, cigarette smoking causes global warming.

Instead, I think it's unfair to other people who have to breathe in second-hand smoke.

What do you think?

I personally dont think they are being treated unfairly.. I agree with BountySinner.. smoking is so common these days. Some ppl do it for fun, looking cool and all.. but others its like a stress reliever or theyre addicted to it. They know what they are getting into so they just have to pay the price in the end. Im sure most of u have friends who do smoke.. but do u treat them differently? my best friend is a smoker.. but i still love him

They would someitmes be mistreated if they smoke in non-smoking areas lol. I hate it when ppl smoke outside in public playgrounds.. too many kids there! I hate the smell of cigarettes ><

A persons right to smoke kinda stops the second i get so much as a whiff of that crap in my lungs nyaa, now I'm just waiting for an outright ban on them

Seriously, if you smoke, be prepared for people to tell you that you happen to smell like a dead raccoon, that you really need to see a dentist, and that there's no way in hell they can borrow your jacket because it's cold.

I know whenever i see a person walking down the sidewalk smoking, i just want to spit on'em nyaa. What gives those jerks a right to pollute other peoples lungs

I get Secondhand smoke everyday from my Parents. I really don't care about smokers, they can do it if they want to, but for god's sake do it outside, and out of the house.

Soon enough smoking will be banned completely. Around here the only place you can legally smoke is inside your home and at least 50ft away from buildings. You can't smoke anywhere else and some company's are firing any employee that smokes because they don't want to be forced to pay for health care when the employee eventually gives themselfs cancer.

I think this can be discussed on any of the existing threads that talk about smoking in general:
