    Actually, I basically despise smokers............some of the most ignorant people in the world

    I take every instance to tell them to get away from doors I am walking into

    The other day this Chinese guy was smoking right outside my apartment building door
    He was done as I was walking up and he threw his cigarette on the ground and started walking into the building
    I called him back and told him to pick up the butt and throw it away properly, told him he shouldn't be leaving that shit in front of the door or smoking in front of it
    I hate smokers smell, even now with it being limited to designated areas, usually outside, when they come back in their clothes and breath, everything stink of smoke.

    Do you have the same laws over there that we have here?
    Here a smoker has to be away from any doorway, I think it is 5 or 10m??

    Yes there are signs but the selfish fxuks don't listen

    But i tell them to screw away from the door everytime they do it

    Airports have gotten smart and most installed outdoor smoking areas
    They still stink but it was ridiculous before they'd be in those small smoking boxes and then board a plane
    Again, with no care about others around them

    I do feel sorry for older smokers, they never had education about the damage etc and being addicted they can't get off them.

    I can't see how they can afford them here, the price is incredible!!!

    I have seen a big change in the years I have been working. Used to be in night clubs with so much smoke haze you couldn't see the performers 5555

    ^^ Yes I have said before on here how my Great Aunt never smoked but died of emphizima because all her working life was in public bars in pubs and she got it from the secondary smoke.

    Prices here are $25-35 Aud. a pack. My Dad used to smoke 2-3 packs a day in the old days he would die again if he saw the price now 5555

    While typing this, A Current Affair was on and had inside access to Border Patrol here, they were showing all the different ways people try to smuggle things in, particularly smokes, the one postal centre checkpoint finds one concealed smoke stash every 2 mins. They uncover $15 million worth every month........FARK!!!!

    I used to bring back a carton of cigarettes from Thailand for my buddy in Canada who used to smoke. He quit smoking and quickly gained weight on his belly. He is also an alcoholic. He loves his beer during the day, and rum in the evening.

    I have many friends who smoke.. current price for a budget brand 20 pack is $28NZ. 30gm pack of tobacco... $55NZD

    I used to bring in a carton... 10 pack for a friend when coming through Duty Free. The trips to Rarotonga were good, 1 pack for me, 1 for the ex and one each for daughter and son. 4 packs in total for under $120.

    Now NZ is limited to 1 pkt Duty Free or a 30gm tobacco.

    Smoking has to be one of the hardest habits to kick. I have tried occasionally but with little success, especially when so many friends indulge. I know it is up to me, my inner strength and willpower, but so far I haven't managed more than 2 years.

    Retiring to LOS might finally do it for me although it may be too late by then. None of Au's family smoke. Her father did, it killed him. He did run a bbq most days and I wonder if that was a contributing factor as well.

    I stopped going to one pub/restaurant (Chiang Mai Saloon) because the owner smoked inside and consequently so do all his patrons. 15 years ago there weren't many places to watch the NFL Superbowl, so I had to watch at the Saloon. By half time the whole Saloon was a blue haze and you could barely see the screen. Thankfully, a lot of places now open early (6 AM) for the Superbowl so there are lots of options. Now I most often watch the game at the Maddog cafe. The owner puts little cigarette pots outside for the smokers and I've never been bothered by the smell.
