    I do not smoke, but I agree 100% with your statement. My methor smokes, and has for a long time, and we talk about this amongst ourselves because people like to voice their opinion out loud to those who are smoking. They don’t address the auto emissions because that is a real problem, and in this country especially (USA) we have a big problem with addressing a problem with a solution that fits. It is easier to pick on those who choose to smoke rather than those who choose to drive their car around 300 miles a day because it passes the time. Yes, auto transportation is vital for some people, but it is also as much a luxury as the next thing. A previous answer I viewed said something about smoking is something that no one needs to do, and it is not vital and whatnot. They’re right, it is not vital, but then again, it is also not easy to quit. People smoke because the drug niccotine gives them a relaxing feeling. It may be a luxury, but it’s also a personal choice, and isn’t that one of our fundamental beliefs in this country?
