    I am a smoker, but i do not smoke in lifts and around the general crowd.
    but when i go to the open space to smoke, there are selfish non smokers who do not care about the rights of the smoker.

    Do you know that carbon monoxide is lethal?
    so the CO that we all help to generate should be more of an issue than 2nd hans smoke from smokers. after all you can inhale 2nd hand smoke and still live a long life, while inhaling CO will kill you, just because it is colorless, practically odorless and tasteless. so no one takes notice.
    but CO has been given the smell to it to make it identfiable by smell at least. and yes CO is just so intoxicating as well to me

    besides using smoking to kill out stench in a confined area or killing time, are there any true purpose for smoking? socialising and acting cool not counted ah

    wanting to point out my short sighted view, it shouldnt have been invented in the first place haha

    i would suppose that CO produced can be given a smell, but sadly, it still has the same result as the one without the smell.

    My point being, that if a person helps generates CO in someway or other, they have no right to complain about 2nd hand smoke as the CO they help to generate is more leathal than the 2nd hand smoke.
    But this does not absolve the smoker from being rude as well.

    you will only know the smoker's purpose of smoking by 1st being a smoker yourself.
    and i would say, if you are not one, then it is best not to find out.

    i am not sure about the history of smoking but i do see in the movies that the american indians use it to promote peace and friendship

    i believe that you are misinformed about that
    the smokers always die faster the "lim bei" (your father?)

    i would strongly advise against using that phrase as it might just offend someone.
    here is another form of selfishness, not thinking of how another person might react to your words.
    one more point for all humans are selfish by nature

    yeah, wanted to try once in army just couldnt stand the smell though lol

    back to point, selfish smokers probably yes, on top of those who smoke inconsiderately ( i will rate as alright), judging by the number of burnt butts around. one may argue about other litter too but comparing one for one, the number of cigarette butts can be overwhelming surprisingly haha

    durian odour does not contain that much harmful pollutants...

    vehicle fumes is a more suitable comparison.

    ok, let think other way
    if you smoke 10 sticks a day (if not more), total cost maybe around $5.
    in a month total cost: $5 x 30 = $150, in 1 year = $150x12 = S$1800.

    Ok, think what you can do with S$1800, upgrade to Nikon D90?
    Or maybe in 2 years S$3600

    Ok, I know most of the smoker may not agree with me, sorry about that

    dude.. nice.. but i do a calculation myself b4...

    base on assumption:
    started year 2000 = SGD 5 x 365(1 pac per day)
    year 2001 = 5 x 365
    year 2002 = 6 x 365
    year 2003 = 7 x 365
    year 2004 = 8 x 365
    year 2005 = 9 x 365
    year 2006 = 10 x 365
    year 2007 = 10 x 365
    year 2008 = 10 x 365

    Total:SGD 25550.00

    this is fun.. i got my D3, 12-24, 24-70, 70-200, SB-900 x 3...

    yes i do agree... but it is not as easy to stop smoking..

    Imagining my Dad, from his 15 years old till now(now is 55 years old)…

    I am a smoker too...

    sometime it is really irritating to smell smoke place like air-conditioned toilet... enclosed staricase.

    Am i consider a responsible smoker? I think I am and I hate those who think smoking in the public is wrong. It is not against the law to smoke in the pubic.

    What do you think of the increase of smoke-free zones?

    Should there be more?

    My neighbor is an extremely selfish smoker.

    Being a considerate father, he is worried about the health-being of his 2 kids. So he would smoke along the common corridor (where my window is facing). Every morning, I'd be awoken by his cigarette smell and once before I go to bed! It is even worst when he is around on Saturdays and Sundays!
