I'm smoking as I'm typing this, LOL.
I also think that it's pretty rude when people have somethin' sideways to say about smoking and/or smokers while we're in the act. If we're in public and there's a smoking section in said public location and if you KNOW you're goin' to a place where there's gonna be smokers there; shouldn't you be waived of the right to comoplain??
There's a smoking ban here in Minnesota that prevents us from smoking in resturants and bars. I can understand resturants to a certain degree. But in bars??? Smoking and drinking kinda come hand in hand--if you're a habitual smoker. If I drink, I'm gonna want a cig and later, mayber another (or even more than that). Bars are where adults and adults only gather to hang out and have a good time; maybe have a drink and a few smokes to relax. Why is it that grown people can't just "man-up"? I gotta go outside in the winter cold and smoke when I go out to drink, because a bunch of grown-ass babies can't accept the fact that adults are entitled to the right to smoke as they please.
I drink at home mostly now. At least there, I can smoke in my own house without ridicule. *Ashes cigarette.*
Smoking shouldn't be banned. They should make better smoker's sections. At Mystic Lake Casino (in Minnesota), they put all the non-smokers in the same room as the smokers--in the bingo hall--and they're separated by a large glass wall to keep all the smoke out and still see all the action.*Note: Casinos are the only legal place to smoke indoors in MN besides your own home.*
So, why can't they do that with ALL public places?
