You should really look into the affects of passive smoking and realize how many other things are affecting your health so much more.
I dont think the effects are worst than some other stuff but I do believe it stink like hell and I don't like to breath in smoke, no matter which kind of smoke it is.

It wasn't the "affects" (sic) of passive smoking I was talking about. You were somehow comparing it with someone eating doughnuts next to you or have you stumbled upon the hitherto unknown "affects" of passive cholesterol?

So its not the passive smoking, its more the smell.

Hahahaha, so your just whingeing.

you are not worried about your health you just dont want to smell of smoke.

I see, maybe your perfume is a little sickly for some, go figure

Hmm... no because fat and sugar just isn't released into the atmosphere in the same way that ciggy smoke is. Someone chomping away on a doughnut right under my nose isn't going to make my hair and clothes stink.

If people want to lead an unhealthy lifestyle, I don't care - maybe it's a way of keeping the 7 billion population under control - but I have a different view when it is affecting MY health.

Rather contradictory statements there.

Well sure, you can't state a dislike for smoking as it affects my health, then state its not the affects of passive smoking I am talking about. The smell doesnt affect your health does it.

No that it was you who made the statement of course

For the record, I don't think catching a whiff of someone's cig smoke on a draughty railway platform is going to damage my health any more than wandering around in traffic and all its related fumes.

Living in the same space as a chain smoker will probably not be the best for your health, though.

I just had to smile to myself at you drawing comparisons between the health hazards of passive smoking and passive cholesterol scoffing.

My perfume doesn't go beyond Dove shower gel and Dove anti persp/deo and I've not yet met anyone that's even noticed it, never mind been sick over it.

We mentioned that a few pages ago, I believe. Do keep up. Yes, cigarette smoke stinks and, most importantly, makes ME stink too. Unless I hug a "Miss Look At Me I Smell Like A Cheap Hooker", I generally don't leave her vicinity smelling like her.

ETA: I don't know what perfume Nil wears but I doubt it's something sickly sweet.

Erm, no its quite clear that one mentioned others smoking affects my health, thus when I countered with research the damage of passive smoking, the about turn came.

Nope. I rarely put one and when I do, I am more fruit than sugar. Can't stand sweets perfume.

Yes, passive smoking is bad for your health - I never disputed that.

Standing in the vicinity of a smoker on a draughty platform? Negligible health effects.

Now, can you come up with some interwebbie research on passive cholesterol? I'm looking forward to that - it's Friday afternoon, after all, and my project has been handed in and I'm ready with my coffee.

1.Not as bad you seem to think or imply.

2. Exactly, so whats all the fuss about on this thread?

3. I never made this claim, you or someone else did. Rather foolishly. My point was, passive smoking really doesnt effect you that much when you are in the open air if at all. There is no real evidence. If it smells, fine, lots of things smell, get over it. Furthermore, my point was one pretending they are looking out for ones welfare, when clearly this is BS, as they wouldnt apply the same logic to someone stuffing their face or even getting the train when they could perhaps cycle.

If your girlfriend/boyfriend * told you that your breath smelt or you had body odour, would you reply, "So, what lots of things smell, get over it."?

*Choose what applies to you, if any.

I.e. why complain about smoke, when lots of things smell.

Tons of people seem to be afraid of showers and deodrant in the morning. This offends me, whilst not damaging my health I acknowledge, but passive smoking really is miniscule in the damage department.

Women do make up and creams on the trains and some funky cosmetic smells whiff about, but it doesnt concern me, though I do fear for the safety of their eyesight and what they might inhale in those open mouths.

Smoke is just another smell, that people seem to get ever so uptight about, and quite frankly, unless you are in an air tight container, its not hurting you its just annoying you and I accept that, but then a non-smoker has to accept a smokers right to exercise their right to smoke outside.

.....................seeing as we have been forced outside these days, quite rightly too, though don't the clubs/pubs/bars have some funky smells now that are not masked by the smoke smell. Suppose its a case of preference i.e. stale beer, sweat, gas and sick, over smoke. I guess the former is not ponging your clothes and hair out.
