I am a smoker and have been since the age of 14, and I really do not see myself giving up anytime soon.
I can understand people getting pissed when smokers smoke in restaurants. I totally agree. Why spend good money on nice food, only to have it ruined by cigarette smoke.
I can also understand not being able to smoke in-flight, but how about an area on the plane where us smokers can congregate (for want of a better word) and light up. Have any of you guys seen the episode of Absolutely Fabulous where Patsy arrives at Edina's apartment after a short taxi ride? That is exactly what I feel like after flying Perth-Melbourne or Perth-Singapore without a fag.
What really pisses me off is that you cannot smoke at the footy anymore (unless of course your name is John Elliott).
So guys, give us smokers a break sometimes hey? I would rather be addicted to smoking (as is the case) than be addicted to alcohol. I have seen many families broken up because of this lesser of the legal drugs.
