I don't think Patsycat is interested in my point of view. I'm not sure I'm that interested in it either.

Sure, but is to be interested in the other point of view required ? in order to stay in discussion.

So i read this as, Tom is not interested in Pussycat's view and he is not intersted in it either, meaning Tom himself is not interested in it.

So who is interested, the guy guy on the platform smoking ?

Whatever, please do NOT ignore others. Brits who ignore others who are close to vanish into space like rockets are the plague. I have it with my 2nd-year-kindergarten-teacher who told me in 1957 there is no question that cannot be answered, whatever the reaction can be --- the youngish lady was Montessori educated
YOU have been smoking, albeit NOT cigarettes!

Tom

Re: Smoking on the train platforms.uughh

I am interested in your point of view, i have looked at the subject with open eyes on all sides.

It is you that has a blinkered view of it.

I am not being rude and telling everyone that you are a nasty person because you don't smoke.

But you seem to put all smokers in the same basket - as people who do not respect others health.

Do you own a car? I think that your car is probably harming more lungs a day than my one or two cigarettes on a sunny terrace do.

And i do keep coming back to this thread, because it interests me. It is an open forum, i can say what i want - even if it is not what you Tom1234 wants to read. As it is not to your liking. You seem to rile people up. Do you get pleasure out of that?

And, by Swiss laws, i am allowed to smoke outside. On a terrace etc. and i and thousands of others shall continue to do so until the law tells me i can't.

What you can do is keep telling your kids that smoking is bad for them, so they won't start. Unlike me, that grew up in a smoking environment.

It was my birthday yesterday, i am 52. Last week i went for a general check up. Clean bill of health.

As ever, totally irrelevant.


As a smoker you have (very very roughly) a 1/3 chance of a significantly early death (heart attack if you're lucky, lung cancer if not), a 1/3 chance of suffering prolonged ill health (lung and circulatory problems) and a 1/3 chance of more-or-less nothing much as a result of your smoking.


You have no idea which group you will belong to in 10 or 20 years.
