  • Nope, really don't care.
  • No but I wonder why anybody still does.
  • not unless they're blowing it in my face or in the face of someone i know intensionally
  • Illinois, where I live, has recently banned smoking in public. I am glad they did. Smoking does not offend me. I dislike the habit though, because it is dangerous, expensive, and annoying for me to breathe second hand smoke. For the most part, I do find that most smokers are very courteous people. +5
  • No. I understand the addiction. My heart hurts for them.
  • No as long as they don't blow smoke in my face. They have a right to smoke if they want, just not in my face. I have family members who smoke. And although for their sake, I'd love to see them quit, I don't mention it. They're adults. One thing I hate to see though is how the world treats them like they're of a lower class.
  • I'm not offended that they smoke, but the nicotine causes a severe asthma attack (911) and I'm very careful of where I go and hubby watches out for smokers for me . It's rough, I can't even be around family that smoke. I do not raz them, but I do wish they would quit.
  • Yes, but everyone offends me.
  • They don't but the smoke does.
  • No, I do not offend myself. I *am* offended by those that want smoking to be banned everywhere though. Some places I can understand the ban, but the logic they use also applies to any internal combustion engine, so let's ban cars too! Well, at least the non-electric ones. And it's funny how many of those anti-smoking zealots have NO idea what sort of chemicals they are putting into their bodies from other sources (fast food, tap water, plain old city air....), but many of them are more harmful than anything in second-hand smoke.
  • Non-smokers love to bitch at us smokers. I would say that there are just about 1 out of ten who don't care. The rest would release a terrorist just to put one of us in jail. Obviously, I've been there. South Park has the perfect example, right outside of their Museum of Tolerance, too.
  • Sonce I jus barely quit....I still kinda consider myself a smoker...so I'd go with NO
  • Nope. Inconsiderate and rude people who smoke cigarettes offend me.
  • the smoke and the smoker is offensive. i dont want to see it or smell it.
  • Yes,second-hand smoke affects me. They don't call them cancer stick for nothing.+6
  • When they don't care that there are non smokers around. Like when someone gets in your car and just lights up without asking. Or that stand right near a door so you have to walk through the smoke to get in. Smokers should be able to smoke, but do it away from non smokers. Its your habit don't force it on me. The non smoker should not have to be inconvenienced to breathe. If you want to smoke, walk away, from the people who choose not to smoke. Its common courtesy. I love the ones standing next to the no smoking sign too. Its like smoking makes you illiterate.
  • Only the inconsiderate ones, and BTW, all CIGAR smokers offend me... aww that stench !
  • Yes. The smell is horrible. Besides, second-hand smoke can be just as deadly as smoking.
  • no, not at all.
  • It doesn't offend me, but it does turn me off.
  • No more than anyone else. It's their choice and should remain so.
  • Only if they smoke around me or else they don't keep clean and they stink like stale smoke.
  • Only if they dont give me one
  • Yes because i don't want to breathe in or smell of their disgusting smoke........ smoking is not a necessity in life, so why should other people have to suffer
  • no each to there own unless they blow smoke in my face
  • It shouldn't offend anyone unless they are blowing smoke in the other persons lungs.
  • I don't judge a person badly just because they smoke cigarettes. I've known plenty of smokers AND non-smokers who offend me.
  • They don't really offend me, but they do disgust me.
  • no, presidents that say that they quit but then keep on smoking do
  • Many older people were pre-conditioned to smoke because of advertising and just social acceptance, we're doing a lot better than we were. I think we should take abuse, drinking, pill popping, and deadly diets seriously as well.
  • Not as much as folks with knives to my throat! ;-)
  • Nope. Not unless they blow it in my face, or burn holes in my clothes with the live ash.
  • No I do not get offended, all I have to do is move away so that I am not breathing in their smoke.
  • Its been proven in various scientific studies for the past several decades that smoking is unhealthy. OTOH its been shown smoking cigarettes can be highly addictive. So to answer the question smoking doesn't offend me since I understand how hard it is to quit. However there is one exception. Somebody smoking with the smoke right in front of my face. I'm diagnosed by a pulmonary MD with chronic bronchitis. Smoking in front of anybody with respitory health issues is just plane rude, inconsiderate.
  • No, I just don't like it when a smoker smokes indoors or in a vehicle. Otherwise, I don't care.
  • No, because I'm an ex-smoker. I know what a nicotine addiction is like. However, I stay away from them when they are smoking, first because I don't need any more exposure to cigarette smoke than I've already had in my lifetime, and second because I don't want to be tempted to smoke.
  • not any more when I used to smoke and someone would smoke all my ciggies or steal my lighter used to annoy me. I haven't smoked for 10 years now it I don't care if someone wants to smoke good luck to them. I smoked for 20 years so I cant say anything.
