"Do you mind if I smoke"?
"No of course I donít"
I love the sweet smell
Of those fumes in the air

It sticks to my clothes
It sticks in my hair
I choke as I try to breathe
The bluish smoke fills my area

My eyes water as I try to focus
Cigarette packets and lighters on the table
"Are you ok, is the smoke bothering you"?
"No of course it isnít"

Welcome to Passions! This is a great first post! Unfortunately, I am still a smoker but I would never subject someone to it if it bothered them like this. You have to be honest and not put up with it if it irritates you. Most people would honor your request. When I kick the habit one of these days (soon I hope) I hope people will be understanding of my request too! Please check your email for a special welcome!

I feel exactly like this...I don't care what people say about rights - I don't particularly want smoke in my lungs - sure you can't avoid pollution, but you CAN avoid smoke! Hehe...That is what I honestly think...welcome to Passions!

(Sorry this sank so fast - it happens, don't worry about it if you were...)

Killer, well this one really sank in, I'm a smoker and I am guilty of not knowing how the other might feel, but if asked not to smoke near them I'd respect that  

Great work!
welcome to Passions!
