Thread Name: BS: Smokers in Europe?
Subject: RE: BS: Smokers in Europe?
Hi Alan, sorry if I gave offense. I certainly recognize that, while the jury is still out on the health effects of second-hand smoke, it is a nuisance to those who don't like it. And while I still smoke, it's becoming more noxious to me when others do it, and I'll do my best to keep it away from non-smokers.
I am not unaware of the health risks, and I wish I could kick this deadly addiction foisted on society since WWII by vigorous ad campaigns. What I object to is the smugly superior healthier-than-thou attitude prevailing here in California.
