    You thought I was serious? My bad.
    Now, THIS thing? THIS thing is horrible. It's just awful. It was awful at 60 and it was awful at 58. It's awful at 45. If this dropped off a mob in Wailing Caverns when you were level 17 and being run through by a higher level character, you would equip it ONLY because you don't have trinkets at that level, and it would STILL SUCK.

    I wish they'd just make it illegal. Lots of people try smoking when they're teens because it's 'cool' and end up having addiction problems with it since it's so easy to get. Atleast it would make less people smoke if it was illegal, and it would never be done in public. If you want to poison yourself, don't do it around me. I don't deserve to inhale that unhealthy stuff just because you have an addiction and can't do it somewhere private/away from people.

    the filter is there for a reason. to reduce harm to the smoker. hence sometimes people saying its more harmful the people around the smoker than to the smoker itself.

    Hmm, that was actually somewhat interesting. I didn't know that.

    I still don't smoke around people who don't like it though simply because I remember how much it burned my eyes when I was a nonsmoker.

    Personally, I'd like all indoor areas to be non-smoking areas.

    Simply because no matter how hard you try, the smoke/smell will always stay inside.
    And that's really annoying for any non-smokers.

    Outside is fine.

    Even when I smoked I wouldn't smoke in an indoor space with other people who don't, it's just rude.

    In outdoor spaces the worst part is probably the smell, unless you're hovering over top of the smoker, what's naturally in the air is probably worse than the little amount of smoke that makes it to you. That being said, I smoked in designated smoking areas or my porch, so if you were hanging around those areas, it's your own choice. I still wouldn't smoke in smoking areas that were in natural walking paths or in front of doors though, again just rude.

    I love hearing stories of polite smokers. If they were all like this, we'd have no need for regulations.

    If anyone else out there is a polite smoker, share your stories. Stick it to the inconsiderate smokers.

    Outlawing smoking wouldn't stop anything. It's best that it keeps getting taxed.
