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...)
