Oh dear my heart bleeds for you. How you must have suffered horribly.

Grow up, she didn't light up. How many sweaty BO overweight non smokers have you sat next to?

:violin:

 

 

 

No never sweaty. Planes are iceboxes one has to wear a jacket. BO yes. Some people can't do anything about it I think,  it seems to be genetic. Last year once a man ACROSS the aisle smelled so bad I had to put the blanket over my head. When you are near a real stinker the plane is always full too. Bummer.

 

Smokers foul odour of clothes, body, and breath is due to choice. A lifestyle choice that causes trouble for others.

Intolerance of other people's life choice is not allowed these days, or are not aware of PC?

There are many things to despise but, even the worst, Islamic terror, I am more likely to be hit by lightning actually. It is the clouds of stinking tobacco smoke and foul odours that actually assault me everyday so I hereby reserve the right to be resplendently INTOLERANT of the “smokers” who insist on foisting it on all and sundry as a god given right.

 

As for the PC ninnies as of December 22, 2017 I am officially retired. There is nothing more they can take from me. I no longer “give a fig”.

 

 Good on the OP! His addiction a personal issue but by remaining smoke free in public will help create a comfortable environment for those who are caused to be troubled by tobacco’s offensive smell.

My dad was a chain smoker for 40 years.  When he was 70 he was pissing blood.  After a week he finally went to the doctor. Got diagnosed with bladder cancer on Friday, doctor said must operate on Monday.  Apparently bladder cancer is easily cut out, but if it gets into the blood and spreads it is like lethal.  Dad stopped smoking cold turkey.  Surgery was routine and in two weeks he was up and about and back to buttering toast in the restaurant in the kitchen.  Sadly about 10 years later the years of damage started taking their toll and he needed an oxygen helper.  It got worse and he couldn't walk up stairs, we had to install one of those chair lifts.  He lived 18 years after that surgery.  

 

  One thing he said was how much more flavorful food and drinks were.  I can imagine that.  Hot smoke covering up and dulling taste buds.

 

  Don't smoke. It benefits nobody except the tobacco companies and distributors.  If nervous, buy some worry beads, popular in the middle east, bite your finger nails, chew on plastic toothpicks, or whatever.  Try to address and attack and resolve whatever it is that makes you nervous.  Habits are habits and they can be broker.

 

Kudos to you. Live well.

One exercise I have heard that helps some people is while not smoking, every day put the amount of money one cig pack costs into the clear transparent cookie jar.  Keep doing that.  No exceptions.  Don't skip a single <deleted> day or week.  Every week take stock of the cash in there.  It may surprise you.

 

Or do the same thing with your online bank accounts.  My primary bank is Etrade so I would move $10 every day from the checking to my Money market or to my savings account.  Won't take long to reach 1,000 bucks.  Then push that to your Roth IRA or just go get a soapy massage, or a whole week's worth of oil massages. 

 

Best wishes.
