Do you smoke Ciggarettes?

...and throw them out on the street after your done with them especially when your driving??

Call me picky but I think if you smoke you should atleast put it out in an ashtray.

I also dislike people who come by the pad or store, or anywhere else , smoke and litter their cigg butts all up on the curb or in front of the house thinking some one else is going to clean up after them.

I used to smoke ciggs but I have been nicotine free since 01.

I hope that prop passes on the cigg tax so that people would slow down on the cancer sticks.

If I smoke anything it better get me lit.

Smokers are generally f'ing rude. They think they deserve extra breaks at work, they think they should be able to smoke wherever they want, they think it's okay to drop their butts outside of stores or out of their car windows. Pisses me off.

I'm voting yes to up the cig tax in my state 80 cents next month.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Who brings their children to bars? Are these the same people that will complain about seeing cleavage on TV?

Not making villians out of smokers, but really, I have to hate on those careless ones who smoke in line at the movies, throw butts out, and put their addiction as first priority regardless if there are kids, people around.

For the other smokers that look out for non-smokers. Step outside lines and away from non-smokers to do the deed. Ones who open the rear or front ashtray in their bmw to throw away their butts. The ones that chew gums atleast after their smoking break, I commend you.

I cringe when I see people smoking in nice cars. I don't smoke, but if I did I would wait until I was done driving.

i don't smoke. but, i mean if a smoker were to smoke let's say... anywhere and there was no ashtray or even a trash can, what do you expect them to do with the finished cigarette? do you expect them to carry it around in their pocket or something until they find one? all my friends that smoke tend to be very respectful of everyone around them when they smoke. i mean, they do throw their buds on the floor but, i mean, i guess we could also target those who chew gum and spit it on the ground too then..

as for smoking in the car.. i have nothing to say but, why do they do it? i suck at multi-tasking! haha

My favorite is walking around in a bar while smoking. I can't tell you how many people I end up stabbing in the hand with my lit cigarette. The shock on their face that I don't care makes me feel like a badass.

Do that in my neighborhood and you'll definitely get a ticket. TX is quite serious about that stuff although I see a lot of people still doing it.

This one guy at my office came up to me to ask me a question and I had just met him so I didn't know he smoked. He just reeked so bad of cigarettes and you could see he was so hopelessly addicted that I just felt sorry. He had bags under his eyes and his skin tone was similar to that of a dead person.

I just get pissed when people toss their cigarette out the window at night on the freeway and the cherry lights up and startles me.

Secondhand smoke is something we have to deal with. In reality, this is one of the smallest examples of inconsiderate behavior so it doesn't get to me that badly.

Yes - the people who throw gum on the ground are equally bad.

Last Christmas I rented a vacation house and had to put down a fat cleaning deposit. Guests were throwing their cig butts off the deck like it was nothing. I was the one the next day who had to walk around in the freezing cold collecting their fvcking butts off of the lawn and bushes. Each of those smokers is now an ignorant, disrespectful SOB in my book.

There are two types of smokers and i've been around both (i used to smoke as well)...the inconsiderate type and the considerate type......it goes beyond simply being a smoker and being a non-smoker...it has to do with your personality type (which is of course influenced by culture and upbringing).

The inconsiderate type will spark up a cigarette anywhere and blow towards crowds of people without even noticing or caring.

The considerate type will always ask (if there's a person nearby), "do you mind if i smoke?" and even when they exhale, they will be careful to blow in the opposite direction of any nearby individuals (not that this prevents second hand smoke, but the gesture makes a big difference).

This is the same for all people, regardless of whether they smoke or not....litterers will litter and considerate people will be considerate.

We rude smokers don't take kindly to the considerates. They make us look soft.
