Please Smoke Away from Doorways

Posted on Fri, Dec 4, 2009 at 10:32 AM

Hey there Halifax smokers (I used to be one of you),
when I smoked, I gave absolutely no-shits about smoking wherever the fuck I wanted because I was a smoker and no one was going to infringe on my rights to smoke wherever the fuck I wanted.
Well. Now that I've quit smoking, I realize how awful it is to be FORCED to breath in smoke every single time it is raining and there are people huddled around entrances smoking. It's not fair to me. It's not fair to anyone who is a non-smoker. Especially on a certain University campus (the biggest in the city) where smoking is prohibited, I couldn't wait for a friend of mine today because there was so much smoke in the entrances. It might be a "right" to choose to smoke, but I think it's a much more legitimate right that I have access to fresh air at all times.
Seriously. Please move away from high-traffic pedestrian areas. It sucks. It makes it hard for me to continue not smoking, and I really want to continue not smoking so that I might be healthy again. Please don't force me to breath in those cancerous clouds of death. Thank you.
