I personally think that the smoking areas are a waste, it's like smokers are a different kind of species and we have to keep them in a area away from us and alienate them. I hardly see anyone using the areas, only the Katanga Caynon and Air Shelter I've ever seen smokers in. Yes smoking kills and blah blah blah. But at the end of the day it is an addiction, like chocolate shall we say, once you've tried it/had it your completly addicted to it and can't get away from it. It's hard to give up smoking, it took my dad 4 years to give up completly but that's another story...
I see it as if people want to smoke let them, it's got nothing to do with us 'non-smokers', it's there life and if there happy with smoking then that's fine by me.
I just think if staff see a smoker blowing the smoke in other guests faces, or smoking in a queueline then they should be dealt with. I'm not keen with smokers being around me but I just get used to it. Seeing some of the staff at the moment, they don't care about the smoking area rule anyway.
As long as the smoker isn't causing any harm, them it's fine.
Smoke in your little dirty designated corners and stick to them!
Your refering smokers as 'dirty', by no means are they dirty just because they smoke. So because a person has a fag there dirty? In that case I must be dirty as I used to smoke, yes I know I'm only 16, also my whole family must be dirty as all of them have smoked at one point. By no means is a smoker dirty and why make remarks like that as you don't even know people, smokers could be cleaner than you quite frankley.
Smoking is not only a choice, everything in your life is a choice. As Invie said it's not only fags you can get cancer from and you pratically risk your life everyday. People make choices all the time beside smoking.
And if I offended you, frankly, I couldn't care less. Just quit!
Why are you telling Invie to quit. You don't know her and it's her life, it's a free country, she can do what she likes. If she wants to smoke let her.
This little rant has been brewing up for a while anyway, you just set it off ATR09 well done.
