The power you have is unimaginable so use it!

A few days ago as I was walking down the street I saw this willowly woman smoking under the roof of an entrance because it was raining. I approached her and asked "Are you an addict?". She looked at me and I saw the struggle in her eyes to accept that she was. "Please leave me alone" she said. I stood there for a second and then said this: "You could be inside where it's warm and cozy yet you're out here, in the rain. And for what?". It was at that moment I saw some thin change in her face. She threw her cigarette to the ground and stomped on it. At first I wasn't sure whether or not she would storm away in anger, but she didn't. Instead she pulled her Benson & Hedges 100s out from her purse and handed them to me. "You're done?" I asked. She nodded. She was ready to quit. And all it took was a little prodding from me. I crushed the pack in my hand and I told her "You're free now". She looked so reassured. The relief on her face made her look 10 years younger. She went back inside to what I assume was her workplace.

I pass by there daily and intend to keep an eye out for her. If I see her smoking, I intend to coach her again. And every other time I see her smoking. Until she quits for good. But I think she's on the right path. Seems like she just needed some reassurance.

It's a lot easier to be nice to people in the street than in the office, Cochise.

The anti-smoking troll is getting creative with his posts.

So you are a jerk in real life not just here on DL? Some people might have pulled out a gun and shot you OP.

I am anti-smoking but you are an asshole.

OK, this one made me laugh a bit.

OP, my penis! It needs to be crushed by your hand!

Give the poor woman her moments of pleasure, op. She got nothing else.

The massive Cigarette taxes do a lot of good the last thing I check.

šŸ˜‚ Fuck outta here. Saw Benson & Hedges in the Bea Arthur thread and came up with this?

This is the first time OP has acted as the prodder rather than the proddee.

This shouldn't be outlined. This is RIGHT.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
