Smokers are FOUL and I'm bothered by them more than ever

I am immunocompromised (don't ask how, I will not disclose that) and having to breathe in their smoke was already offensive to my health, but now I risk getting SARS-CoV-2 because of them.

Does anyone immunocompromised have experience with telling them off?

by Anonymousreply 3705/25/2020

Telling them off won't help them stop.

by Anonymousreply 105/24/2020

R1 I said I wouldn't disclose that.

by Anonymousreply 205/24/2020

OP = Prissspot

by Anonymousreply 305/24/2020

Where are you dealing with all these smokers, OP?

by Anonymousreply 405/24/2020

OP: Hi Matt!

by Anonymousreply 505/24/2020

The anti-smoking troll lives!

by Anonymousreply 605/24/2020

I grew up in a family of smokers. I don't smoke. I can't believe to tell you how nice it is to not be around that crap anymore. Most people vape now. It's mostly older people that smoke. Where are you hanging out, OP? Bingo parlor?

by Anonymousreply 705/24/2020

Huh, OP/R2?

R1 never even asked you that question; they *told* you berating smokers won't help them quit.

Is you illiterate as well as immunocompromised also too?

by Anonymousreply 805/24/2020

Cars and busses are more dangerous. Do you think that little thing coming out of the cigarette is the problem? Lol!

by Anonymousreply 905/24/2020

Are you immunocompromised from the lobotomy OP?

by Anonymousreply 1005/24/2020

R2 - ? Didn't understand the comment

by Anonymousreply 1105/24/2020

Cigarettes are a curse. Been smoking since my first attack of colitis at 17. It is damn near impossible to stop.

by Anonymousreply 1205/24/2020

R1 = “Telling them off won’t help them stop.”

OP= “I told you, im not giving you my social security number! Umbrella! Rainbow! Moscow!”

Somehow I don’t think that passive smoke is the real issue in OP’s life.

I have occassional asthma/allergies OP, and I can relate. When my asthma is active, cigarette smoke is suffocating. It's awlful. So is colonge, truck exhaust, etc. Luckily when my asthma isn't active, which is most of the time, it really doesn't bother me.

Take a walk, Buster.

Are your alleged illnesses all psychosomatic, OP? I haven’t even seen someone smoking in years, and if they’re outside they have as much right to smoke as you do not to.

by Anonymousreply 1605/24/2020

I would love to see a smoker. They are as rare as an ivory billed woodpecker. Where are they, OP?

by Anonymousreply 1705/24/2020

R16 They are not psychosomatic and I will not disclose that information.

by Anonymousreply 1805/24/2020

Fine, don't disclose it, we don't actually care.

What we really want are more details, OP. Where are you being regularly tormented by nasty smokers? I rarely see one anymore and when I do they always seem to be skulking off to the side somewhere, trying not to be seen. Is it the apartment next door and it's coming through the vents? Underneath your office window, permeating all attempts to block it out? What?

Details are the soul of Datalounge complaints, OP, so keep your immunocompromised cause to yourself and give.

by Anonymousreply 1905/24/2020

R19 I live.

by Anonymousreply 2005/24/2020

That’s a pity, R20.

by Anonymousreply 2105/24/2020

I say everyone BLOCK OP unless he discloses his ailment

by Anonymousreply 2205/24/2020

I say BLOCK OP unless he discloses the location of these smokers. The only explanation for being around a bunch of them is if he lives in Ukraine or some such Smokey area.

by Anonymousreply 2305/24/2020

So even though I smoke and want to quit, if I am in the range of a non-smoker I always ask "mind if I smoke?". I really do hate the people that, if they see you outside in a big space, walk RIGHT next to you at the ashtray and immediately make faces or chastise me. Like, why come up to me and not stand away? This is the stuff that makes Europeans side eye Americans. Most young Europeans like me don't smoke as much, or want to quit...but nobody walks right by the designated smoking area and makes faces. Fat Karens do this at the mall...enormous parking lot and entrances and they walk right to you. A few minutes later when you go in, they are shoving their pie hole with the nastiest junk food after arriving in their SUV. The type that shop at the "women's sizes" section.

by Anonymousreply 2405/24/2020

Maybe Op lives in Hollywood. I'm surprised how many actors smoke. I guess it keeps their weight down.

by Anonymousreply 2505/24/2020

R24 All women, fat Karens or not, shop in the "Women's Sizes" section.

by Anonymousreply 2605/24/2020

Beg pard, R26?

by Anonymousreply 2705/24/2020

I smoked for years in my misspent youth - loved it. Would do it again if it wasn't deadly, socially unacceptable and gives anyone who does it a foul stench.

Actually, I could live with the foul stench and the opprobrium, it's the not living part I can't face.

So I quit cold turkey. I recommend copious amounts of pot (seriously) and food and having things to do. I smoke a cigarette once or twice a year if I feel like it. I wish I could smoke more without starting up whole-hog again.

by Anonymousreply 2805/24/2020

Thanks OP. I was craving something and couldn't figure out what it was. I want a cigarette. Thanks and bye.

by Anonymousreply 2905/24/2020

Since smokers are not allowed to light up ANYWHERE ANYMORE you must have to seek out smoky areas so you can be bothered more than ever. Pick a less health hazardous obsession, like complaining to Trader Joe managers that you're immunocompromised and can't be forced to shop w a mask on. Exhausting queen.

by Anonymousreply 3005/24/2020

Have we gotten any details from the "I will not disclose" queen?

Where is he being tormented by all these foul smokers?

by Anonymousreply 3105/24/2020

We used to live in San Diego, where nobody smokes. We moved to a small town in Nevada (deplorable country) where everyone smokes. It's disgusting. I think the "red states" or at least "red areas" have much higher rates of smoking.

by Anonymousreply 3205/24/2020

are you immunocompromised because of smokers?

by Anonymousreply 3305/24/2020

Mary!!!! Just wear your mask and put in extra filters.

by Anonymousreply 3405/24/2020

Do you live next to a gargoyle, OP?

by Anonymousreply 3505/24/2020

I used to smoke when I was in college. In the 2000s I lived in Eastern Europe, where pretty much everyone still smokes, including in restaurants (My mom used to say that having a smoking section in a restaurant was like having a peeing section in a pool.) so I started smoking again until I came back to the US. I can't stand burning cigarettes, but still think its hot to make-out with someone who smoked a cigarette. I still regularly smoke cigars, but only outside, and only at home.

by Anonymousreply 3605/25/2020

Jeez I am gay and the OP is too gay for me. A real bona fide old hysterical queen
