Thread Name: BS: Smokers in Europe?
Subject: RE: BS: Smokers in Europe?
I guess this is a contoversial topic.I feel that many people have taken the view that smokers feel they should smoke when and where they like. That is not so. As a smoker I recognize that people do have the right to smoke free areas. However, I feel that I should be able to have a smoke and a pint without be treated as though I am the only earthly cause of pollution. I feel there needs to be common sense and courtesy on both sides. Much of the animosity is generated by the pathological self righteousness of those who do not see themselves as polluters..only "smokers" do that.
   I find it all a bite tiresome. I am allergic to cats..I avoid this dsicomfort not by screaming for a ban on cats, but by avoiding them when I am able. Common sense.
