People are ignorant douche bags.tell them to keep their comments and opinions to themselves. Tell them you're aware of the risks and you're a grown woman.I smoke too and I feel like punching people when they say "you know smokings so bad for you" I say " really you're kidding I thought it was good for me.now that I know that I'm gonna quit right now". Lol.don't take it personally

When someone asks you "Do you know that's a bad habit?" You should respond with "Uh, duh, it says on the pack and I can read.
Do you know it's a bad habit to but your nose into someone else's business, not to mention rude? Apparently not!"

You do know that smoking causes cancer, right? And that every time you smoke a cigarette you fill your lungs with toxins? I'm not judging you - I'm a smoker, too, but you're delusional if you think smoking and dipping aren't bad for you.

If you "need to smoke cigarettes" you are addicted to nicotine.
Nicotine is a drug, which means you are a drug addict.
Don't kid yourself - nicotine is no better than crack - it just takes longer to kill you.

It's not the healthiest thing to do, but why do you care? If you want to do it then do it.
Pretty much anything you do somebody somewhere out there is going to judge it.
Just do what you want.
I don't smoke but I don't care if other people do.
Forget about those that judge you for it.
Seriously, why do you care?

My husband chews and it is his choice. Of course I wish he didn't but he also probably wishes I didn't indulge in my vice.

To each his/her own. You are a grown up and have every right to live your life the way you choose!

If I only had a dime for every person that has told me I shouldn't smoke.
For some reason people feel that it's perfectly fine to give unsolicited advice when it comes to smoking.
Nobody would just randomly walk up to an obese person & tell them they should stop eating.
Why not? Because that would be insensitive.
Some people can just be opinionated bullies & it's arrogant at best to assume that anybody needs their input.
The thing is that you can't cowar when people like this talk crap.
Tell them it's none of their F-in business & maybe they'll think twice about saying it to someone else.
Most smokers will answer with "i know i know it's not healthy but i can't quit" or something to that effect.
If you have the audacity to say something to me when I didn't ask for your opinion, I will come at you guns blazing.
I'm sure I've shocked people a few times with my responses & I doubt they won't think twice next time.

You are using products legally sold in this country. If you are using them in your own home or outside, therefor not infringing on anyone else's personal space 9secong hand smoke issues, etc) then these people should shut up and leave their rude comments unsaid....a good reply is, since so many people consume alcohol, that no one has ever been arrested for smoking and driving, but drinking and driving, well, we all know that is a terrible combination. How is their livers doing? There has never been a Constitutional amendment against smoking, but they did try very hard to ban alcohol. What about people who eat too much sugar and carbs? How is their pancreas doing? Do they have heart disease or diabetes yet?

Unfortunately for you, smokers have become a target in this country.
As long as you are considerate, do not accept the crap other people try to heap on you.
