Yes! hence the reason I am wearing a nictotine patch now on my stomach. I just can't stand self-riteous non-smokers who preach and look down their noses at you. Just because you unfortunatley thought it would be cool to smoke when you were a teen then couldn't stop because its an addiction. Just lay off smokers a bit, we're getting our smoking ban soon. Plus you come across as a d**k with your "I'm better than you because I don't smoke. Your smelly, stupid, killing yourself and wasting loads of money".

WE KNOW!!!! Thats why I'm quitting and lots more people will quit. You have to want to quit first though.

Then you have sense, stick with it, it'll be hard at first but worth it, only a pity there was no will power and self restraint when you thought you were cool but now it's my turn to be cool <cool>

Now to educate those that still need it.

I picture you all now, including the big Gorilla, WAKING UP, COUGHING, CHOKING, SPLUTTERING - where's me fags, that'll cure me, oblivious, or possibly self deluded as to thinking THEY REALLY WORK, Ah. there they are are, yes, my saviours.

I must get dressed and rush out to the shops for the paper and my next 20 - passus a fiver love.

Now I can put up with you killing yourselves, but not me along with it, smoker atmospheres will be a thing o' the past whayyyay and your children and grandchildren may get to you a bit longer. THINK ABOUT IT - DON'T STINK ABOUT IT.

My new campaign.

I blame movies with sex scenes where the couple smoke afterwards. My first pack of cigarettes was smoked on the eve of me losing my virginity. Just from that I was hooked, thats how powerful nicotine is. Stupid girl. But I was just a girl then.

Were you a smoker then HU?

Dreading it. If I have grandchildren how will they learn that it is a nasty habit?
Pom who's children were never protected from the evils of the community.

I'm not so sure it is an addiction I know a lot of people who have given them up without the use of nicotine patches. And don't go quoting medical officials - they are just drug pushers.
Pom - non smoker. ?self righteous.

Its about time people who pollute their neighbours atmosphere. its terrible you go out in the garden with the kids and the a'holes you have for neighbours are outside smoking contaminating the air your children breathe.

Smoking should not be allowed in private homes cos of the harm to choildren and partners, its a buse like letting your kids eat junk food

(i feel much better now thanks)

Looking at this through the eyes of the new Yodeller which is nothing like the new stateman, when you look at it sensibly, it is only common courtesy not to smoke in none smokers company, unless oneself is removed as so. This also applies for food unless you like these outdoor streetside cafes where you can take a nice dose of Vauxhall Astra emission in with your eccles cake and cuppa. I don't though so don't frequent those places. A complete ban on cigarettes would never work even if the government could offset the reduced tax revenue by a whole lot healthier population as it would just drive them underground which is why they don't do it otherwise they'd lose the tax revenue and still have all the ills blamed on putting yuk into your lungs.

As for the addiction, it is pity that has to be felt in this area, so please forgive me those who think I looked down my nose at you because your weak will isn't as bad as my addiction to Mr Kipling's cakes.

I forgive you. Non-smokers like that just really hack me off and I should know, my dad's one of them.

BTW I was a respectable 16 :-)

Yeah, much better to sit your children by the side of the road to breath in the tonnes of fuel emissions!

Hello Victor! ;)

In their case, the moaning neighbour was under the impression that the cigarette smoke pregnated through the wall between their properties!!!

If I were the Gordon-Crawley's I'd start cooking lots of curries or dishes with garlic or smelly spices, with immediate effect. If nothing else, at least the cooking smells would disguise the cigarette smell.

Would the council be able to defend a decision to investigate a to follow up to a complaint of 'alleged odour nuisance' for curries? Wouldn't that be considered racist?

Non-commercial cooking smells would never be actionable unless someone was perpetually burning toast.The smells of spices roasting coffee baking bread etc an only enhance a neighbourhood.

A-ha! An ex-smoker, eh Jack?

Actually, to be honest, I'd really like too start again, but:
the wife would kill me
its too expensive
I'd feel guilty about increase the chances of the kids taking it up,
but if it wasn't for those I'd be puffing like ivor the engine.
