I quit smoking 16 months ago and ever since I quit I hate being around the smell. Don't go 2 the bar because of it. I work at a fast food restaurant and absolutely hate when someone goes through the drive thru smoking a cig. I barely crack the window open to assist them.

What's so damn hard about waiting until you drive away to light one up? Just because you smoke doesn't mean I want to smell it. I respect you enough not to screw with your food, respect me enough not to smoke at the drive thru.

Who's guilty of doing this? I know its a free country and you can smoke in your car whenever you want. But, can't you wait until you're not around a business?

Rant over.

I quit smoking 2 years ago after 13 years of smoking. I personally like the smell of cigs around me, I enjoy watching people smoke, I just don't want to do it myself.

I love the smell of a good cigar. Don't know why I hate cig smell so much now.

You're probably smelling a cheap ass, floor scrapings, shitty cigarette.
You can thank the gubment and various states for taxing the shit out of them so people can't afford to smoke better brands.
Just saying.

That's why RJR and Winston went out of business. I mean they paid millions and had to change tobacco plants that they used.

We have to smoke where we can. The smoking bands make us smoke at home or in our car.

I do not smoke in my car period, at least not cigarettes.

Respect me enough to allow me to do what is legal.

I never smoked around people I didn't know. For all I knew they could've been allergic to smoke. I guess the only time I did was when I use to drink often. Even when I did smoke I thought it was unattractive so I rarely did it in public.

I used to smoke cigs as well, and I think that once we quit... we begin to associate massive amounts of pain and dislike to the cigarettes.

I also HATE the ****ing smell... Im not hypocritical about it though... I just ****ing HATE the smell, I have programmed my mind to ****ING hate the smell. And it does ****ing reak.

The guy may have been a complete prick.

OR...

The car might be his last refuge.

I hate the smell as much as any non-smoker (really, I do), but it's just a bad smell that must be dealt with like a hundred other bad smells. I'd still rather smell cigarette smoke than bad BO or heavy garlic.

Roll your eyes all you want. A carton of Winston or Marlboro's went from $12-15 to $33 and beyond sight in some states after they paid out all those millions. I'd hate to guess what a carton of Marlboro's cost in NY state.
I'd say most people smoke the generic shit rather than pay out the ass for a quality cigarette.

I hate the smell too. I took the kids to St. Louis last weekend for a trip to the zoo, arch, and Six Flags. The only hotel we could find with vacancies only had smoking rooms left. The room smelled so bad I couldnt sleep. I finally went down to Wal-Mart and bought some car air fresheners and hung them all over the room. It helped...a little.

"Most" smokers could care less.

Quality killer is different from a generic killer?

I am a smoker and no there is only problems with no benefits. I make the choice and do not blame anyone but myself.

You can always quit, I mean there is global warming.

LOL

Guess you will say it is legal and because the government says so, you should have the right to better products.

Wow, I didnt catch on to sarcasm in another thread so that means Im a drama queen because the hotel room I stayed in smelled like an old dirty ashtray and I couldnt sleep? ROFL I see the intelligence level around here hasnt gone up much since Ive been gone. And for the record, St. Louis as a whole stunk pretty bad. Cow emissions dont bother me since I grew up on a farm.

Hell I'm a smoker and I can't stand smoking rooms in hotels, they're almost always nasty. I don't know if it's because no one ever opens up the windows and the air gets stale or maybe the hotels simply don't attempt to keep them clean but whatever there's no excuse for them to be that bad. I usually get a non smoking room and just go smoke outside.

Thats probably part of it. The window was open when we first entered the room but it didnt help. I do avoid bars as well though, or anywhere smokers congregate. Im surprised the smell bothers me so much, I grew up with parents that smoked so I should be used to it.

It effects the environment.

You do not seems to mind the pollution that you are forced to take but point out something that you agreed could happen.

Did you ever think that the everyday pollutions are not keeping me awake because you have no choice but that damn smoke I agreed to in the room was not?

I guess you made a thread about pollution that is required before (everyday) since you did about something that was not required but inconvenienced.

I bet most people that are not from cattle land can not sleep in a pasture, but do not state it in a thread because they stayed in a cow yard.

They knew they might stay in a cattle yard and you knew you were staying in a smoker room. IMO

The thread is about who hates the smell of smoke. Nowhere in the OP's thread did it mention pollution or the environment. I gave a recent example of the smell that I experienced. Im not calling for a ban on smoking, just participating in the thread. And you call me a drama queen...ROFL

I do have an honest question for smokers, and sorry for hijacking the thread. Is there some sort of social acceptability thing amongst smokers that makes it OK to put out cigarettes on the ground and leave the butts sitting there? This is plain-as-day littering in my mind, but it seems to be common practice. Even a couple of my distant in-laws do it as we're just walking around.

I don't get it.

My bad then but I saw 3 post of yours about complaints and it appeared that it was about your inconveniences, guess the smoke smell in a smoking room got me started.

It is littering. I always found it strange that a smoker will walk to a trashcan to dispose of his soda can then throw his cigarette butt on the ground and leave it. I guess its because they are small...

There's a difference between your parents having a occasional cigarette in their house and a bar full of people smoking their brains out. When you have high concentrations of it, it's far worse. That may be another part of the hotel room deal, instead of them occasionally being smoked in back when all hotel rooms were treated equal, now the smoking rooms are ALWAYS being smoked in. I don't ever remember any hotel rooms smelling that bad before they started segregating them.

I agree.

I always put mine in a trash can..

I did learn to field strip them in the Army and have always done so since.

They teach you by making you pick up all the butts for 1/2 square mile if caught

I was never caught but learned quickly. This is recent in history, before it was not considered as litter.

Hijack over

No my house growing up was worse than a bar. My mom and step dad both smoked about two packs a day and never opened the windows. When you walked into our house there would always be a thick cloud of smoke lingering. It was so bad the walls would turn yellow just after about a month of fresh paint. It didnt matter how many times I washed my clothes the smell would never come out. I remember being embarrassed one time when I was about 12 because my Sunday school teacher asked me if I smoked. :shake:

I don't find it acceptable at all, I always dispose of my butts properly. But you're right, the majority of them act like they are going to just disappear. Occasionally my wife will sit out on the front porch and she'll put her cigarettes out in the rock bed, it drives me ****ing nuts because I'm the one who ends up picking them out of there, and then she acts like I'm a god damn commie when I tell her not to do it anymore. I don't get it either.
