Honestly, I love people who smoke. They tend to be way more interesting than non smokers.

I like the way smoking smells too.

Mmmm lovely fags.

I'm a vaper. But I used to be a smoker. Please love me too. Yummy Marlboro. I miss your shiny packet

Yes, there's nothing I like better than walking through a cloud of toxins on my way into hospital to see DP.

I think all the smokers should be given more free fags to kill them off

I love you strawberry. You're lovely.

Vapers are cool as long as you haven't started turning your nose up at smokers.

You never forget the real thing.

Oh how I miss Marlboro lights ... gave up 10+ years ago and could still light one now smile I probably am less interesting than I was 10 years ago!!

Smoking is antisocial, and a dying (ha!) habit.

Love all you like but don't expect the majority to not be annoyed by smoking.

Free fags - yes please.

Are you allowed to smoke near the door of a hospital? I thought you had to be off the grounds.

Hope your DP is ok flowers

Ooooh, that smell, those fumes. Yum. Vaping is not quite the same (although I now do it)!

Ouch sad didn't realise I was so dull

I love standing outside with the smokers.

They are much more interesting.

Quiero Sat 15-Nov-14 19:28:49

Ah shok, I don't expect anything but abuse for this thread grin

I am being tongue in cheek, I'm not a total twat but I just get a bit tired of the mn view that smokers are lesser human beings than everyone else.

I hate the smell of cigarettes, it's a gross, expensive habit.

However I hate judgy bastards that take the moral high ground even more.

I miss the days when you could get in from a night out and if you'd miscalculated shared your pack with a hot totty on a promise the pack you could sniff your top and be transported right back to the smoky bar.

I am a vaper.

I love a smoker.

Love many of smokers, actually.

Me too usual. My mam was a smoker and she spent a lot of time in hospital (unrelated to smoking I might add). And back then you could smoke in the day room and there was a non smoking room too. She tried both and said everyone in the non smoking room sat in silence ignoring each other and the people in the smoking room were really friendly and she made loads of mates.

Not scientific evidence but good enough for me grin

SpringHeeledJack Sat 15-Nov-14 19:35:04

I always like people I already like more if I find out they're ex smokers. Yes, I really AM that shallow

My mum might have agreed with you, but she died when she was 53 from emphysema so I can't ask her.

I know you're being lighthearted, but I'm afraid it will never amuse me.

YANBU. Smoking is very social, one of the things my Ex-smoking friends miss is chatting to strangers in the Smoking Area.

PrettyPictures92 Sat 15-Nov-14 19:37:27

Cuttedup I'm really hoping that was sarcastic? Not all of us enjoy smoking you know, and not all of us smoke where it affects everyone else. I've been smoking for years and have tried every give up method available.

usualsuspect333 Sat 15-Nov-14 19:37:49

I'm in the smoking gang at work.

Nanny0gg Sat 15-Nov-14 19:38:47

Sorry, that was really pious and I shouldn't have posted it.

However I do have the opposite opinion. If I find someone I like is a smoker they go down in my estimation.

DustWitch Sat 15-Nov-14 19:45:14

YANBU, I have had all manner of weird and wonderful conversations and made some solid friendships whilst standing outside in the 'smoking area' at the back of my office.

I now vape and love the fact that I can still stand outside with my smoking comrades philosophising about politics or the weather.

LeopardInABobbleHat Sat 15-Nov-14 19:46:51

That's understandable, Nanny0gg. I think this thread is just a riposte to the smoker-bashing you find with tedious regularity on MN.

Yes, it's a dangerous habit and yes, it has side effects that can be life limiting. I don't know anyone who hasn't been touched by those side effects tbh. But there are things attached to it that cause nostalgia for many and they're not all negative.
