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?

Telling them off won't help them stop.

Where are you dealing with all these smokers, OP?

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?

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?

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

Are you immunocompromised from the lobotomy OP?

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

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.

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.

I would love to see a smoker. They are as rare as an ivory billed woodpecker. Where are they, OP?
|by Anonymous||reply 17||05/24/2020|
R16 They are not psychosomatic and I will not disclose that information.

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.

I say everyone BLOCK OP unless he discloses his ailment
|by Anonymous||reply 22||05/24/2020|
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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

Have we gotten any details from the "I will not disclose" queen?
Where is he being tormented by all these foul smokers?

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.

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.
