Kiss a Non Smoker And Taste The Difference.

This is a Re-run

WHAT happened to the slogan 'Kiss a non smoker and taste the difference'?
Did the tobacco companies buy the copyright and ban its publication? if so what about having a new slogan! But remember the kids will have to see it too.
My partner and I are non smokers and only experience this dreadful problem at alcohol pumped up parties and other social gatherings.
What have you experienced when kissing a tobacco smoker? be careful now.
What are your thoughts on tobacco usage in general? like ban Smokes, ration them or tax them out of reach of people, or should we wear a non smokers badge which states,
"Blow that smoke in my face and you will die you bastard"
Remember you dopey smokers, It will reduce your shagging days considerably and each smoke an hour of your life.
Maybe smokers should be fitted with smoke stacks!!

ADD: My two local social clubs which are in a medium size category, segregate smoking areas, however, the gaming areas are all smoking areas, which in my opinion is totally wrong.
I try when possible to occupy an area in the clubs well away from the smokers but my clothing stinks of tobacco smoke when I arrive home.
If we non smokers survive another year we will see ALL smoking banned in pubs and clubs, then a rise in fees and possibly a few establishments going to the wall.

Our community was a flagship for banning smoking in public places. I have been a non-smoker for about 25 years. While I appreciated non-smoking areas in restaurants prior to this, I thought it would be terrible for smokers not to be able to enjoy a smoke with a drink in the pub. However, when it finally came thru, it was very nice to go out and not stink of smoke or have irritated eyes or throat. There were a couple of dives that went under because the little business they drew decided to take it home. Our favourite pub however had a 40% increase in food sales. Without the smoke, appetites were bigger, when food was delivered to another table, you could smell it and wanted some. Pubs were still packed. Restaurants - no prob. Now, I find it disgusting to enter a restaurant or coffee shop with smokers. I wouldn't buy a donut from one of these places ever. The part I don't like about it is seeing grown-ups standing outside the doors of a bar smoking, littering the sidewalk with butts. Some bars have covered, heated patios for smokers which hides them away from the public eye. These do well.
What I don't understand is that with all the knowledge of how bad smoking is, how come the kids get started on it? What makes it cool? When I started, 75% of people smoked. I guess we knew it was bad then too but the majority did it anyway. Now that's not the case at all.

Blech - I hate smoke and I refuse to be with someone who smokes. I have never been a smoker, though, but have had to live with people who do. Probably why I have a low tolerance for it.

I think that if people want to smoke then go ahead, but they should respect non-smokers.

Mr JDR and I are both smokers, however we don't smoke around people who are non-smokers. There is also no smoking in the house/car, and if I do have a cigerette it is when JellyBean is asleep and my hands are washed straight after.

As I said, if people want to smoke, then that is fine, as long as they respect those around them.

Having said that though, it wouldn't bother me if they banned smoking all together. I'd just quit. I quit when I found out I was pregnant with JB. I am more of a social smoker anyway, so if they are banned then there would be very little reason to smoke.

Anyways...

Where I'm from, public smoking no longer exists, except outside. Not at work, clubs, restaurants - not even bingo or bowling! It's pretty awesome.

I hate the smell, would NOT kiss a smoker, and because I live in Canada where we have socialized health costs, I do worry about having to pay for all these people deliberately giving themselves lung cancer. But then, when I reach for that second slice of greasy pizza, I realize they probably feel the same way about me and my clogged arteries. So basically, if they aren't blowing smoke at me, I guess they can keep their nasty vice.

jdsrose x & Jay x, thanks for the comments, something more sensible for a change.
Last Friday I was re-acquainted with a female singer in the band performing at our club, certainly got the ticker beating faster in the clinch, must admit I enjoyed the close up look and hug, yes you guessed it 'Fag Breath'.
BTW I'm looking forward to a repeat performance.
Remember the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

All that you know is this small life, and in this small life you know two things: the misery and the pain of life, and ways and methods of forgetting that misery and pain.

That you call your amusement, entertainmentgoing to a movie, to a circus. These are your ways to forget your life. There you became engaged for two or three hours in. a different world.


The enlightened person is certainly difficult for you to conceive of.It is just like if you smoke, you cannot conceive how millions of people go on without smoking. They must be missing! And the person who does not smoke is not missing anything except some nicotine, some poison that will kill you earlier than him.

Otherwise, he is not missing anything.

The person who is an alcoholic carn'lot believe that the whole world goes on without the bottle. He cannot live even a single day without the bottle. He feels pity for you: "Poor fellows, they don't know that there is a way, through alcohol, to forget all the burdens oflife."

But he cannot conceive of a life which has no burdens at all to forget.And that is your position

ANON (3)AS from today I am to be Known as the old sea dog 'Cur Vest' not 'Sir Vest'.
The British Monarch's policy of churning out 'Knighthoods or Sir's' to a bunch of well known but useless goofs such as cricketers, brown hatters, song writers and other morons should cease.
There are multiple case's of misallocation of Knighthoods, such as Elton John (Sir Q), J Lennon, P MC Cartnney, several useless cricketers and Salman Rushdie to name a few , who in my opinion the Knighthood or (Condom) should have been worn by their fathers, thus preventing the existence of these unworthy persons.

Jim: Will you immolate your self; as the females do suttee, should your beloved depart before you?
It sort of puts smoking and getting burned up about matters into a different perspective, what say you old chappie?
