    joking. your's and other smokers' right to smoke comes from your and theirs contribution towards tobacco taxes.

    Can imagine I was standing away from the crowd smoking and came one 'tai tai' walking pass me, fanning her hand and looked at me as if I'm from planet pluto. I'm already away from the crowd liao lah .. pls lah ... wan me to smoke on the 72nd floor of UOB plaza ??

    Again, I'm not saying u can't complain, and there is indeed non civic minded smokers but pls try to understand and leave some space for us. ....to be continued.....

    My neighbour downstairs smokes. And I can't study with smoke.
    So I just pour a few huge bottles of tap water down. It works.

    I mean the auntie fan her hand 1st , and that action has denied my rights to smoke, so why should I recognise her rights to fan ... anyway, I'm just stressing that smokers be
    ethical , and non-smokers to understand our plight and not push us over the ledge . To summarize ... WORLD PEACE ~!

    My neighbour, who has a few kids at home, like to stand along the corridor outside my unit and smoke. Every morning, you'll find 10-20 cigarette butts along the corridor!! Very inconsiderate of them.

    I am just happy that my neighbour who smokes outside the house never let in any smoke into my place.

    I mean, even some smokers smoke outside of their own house as they don't want any smoke in their home. Imagine what a non-smoker feel about smoke inside their own place....

    Non-smokers got rights also.

    The stink of cigar/cigarette smoke extends a mile up my friend.

    I'm those civic-minded smokers who would avoid crowded people and kids and yet I was given such 'nice gesture'.
    For a start, u can quit smoking. U may be civic-minded but the wind isn't.

    Can imagine I was standing away from the crowd smoking and came one 'tai tai' walking pass me, fanning her hand and looked at me as if I'm from planet pluto. I'm already away from the crowd liao lah .. pls lah ... wan me to smoke on the 72nd floor of UOB plaza ??
    Smoke doesn't juz comes outta ya mouth my friend. It sticks on ur clothing, ur hair and every breath u make... cigarette smoke.

    Again, I'm not saying u can't complain, and there is indeed non civic minded smokers but pls try to understand and leave some space for us. ....to be continued.....
    U can juz quit? Had walked the path of smoking once and gave it up after realising that I stank horribly for a couple of days after my last stick.

    Its abt ya health. But den again, I guess its ur choice, ur money and ur health. Den again, its also other ppl's choice (of fanning the air with their hands) and their health (of breathing in 2nd hand smoke). Till Singapore drops the Firearms Act completely, I think u dun have a choice.

    I think the point here is littering, not the smoke?

    Smoker's Rights

    Yes we should all ride bicycles as burning fuel gives out carbon monoxide
    and that is lethal.

    If the non-smoker does not want to smell the smoke then
    he/she should not have walked near a smoker,
    since ethical smokers have already moved away from the crowd.
    Why should the non-smoker walk there and complain?

    What about the rubbish truck? it smells too.
    Shall we all bring our refuse to a location that is far away?
    Or keep the status quo and drop it into the chute?

    Littering on the other hand is bad.
