They dont give a shit about their unborn child or their own health to go take a smoke. We had a lady with a baby that did not look too good on the monitor. But she signed out AMA because we wouldnt let her go smoke. She didnt care that the baby may die or be brain damaged, it was just important to get her fix.

I just had to do an emergency c-section to get the kid out and she had abrupted. The kid was a little distressed but looks ok. She wants to know when she go light one. She said she wasnt going to listen because doctors are never right.

I am sure she would be more then happy to sue me though if anything is wrong with the baby even though she did what she wanted against medical advice.

That's child neglect as far as I'm concerned, and should be a punishable offense.

My husband passed away in 2001 from a brain tumor, and I used to drive him to all his appointments. His chemo doctor in Atlanta of course saw all kinds of cancer patients.
There was one gentleman in there who used to come in to see the doctor, and he seemed to be on the same schedule as we were. Half of his nasal area was eaten away by cancer, and he was still smoking! Just blew me away.

that's fucked up. i assume that she smoked during the pregnancy? she'll be lucky if that kid grows up healthy.

i hate how smokers seem to think they have the RIGHT to smoke. don't get me wrong. if you're at YOUR house or in YOUR car, or at YOUR _(insert location)___ go ahead and smoke em if you got em, but you do NOT have a RIGHT to smoke in a public place.

That's unfortunate, indeed.

On the other hand, my brother in law is one of 6 children born of a 3 pack a day smoker. All are fine. My wife smoked those ultra light things now and then while she was pregnant. My daughter is fine. Like most things, somewhere between "You're going to kill your baby if you're around smoke" and "Smoke all you want, nothing bad will happen" lies the truth.

Cigarettes are certainly quite addicting though, as evidenced by this woman's actions.

Fixed your title:


Smokers are worse than drug addicts


I used to smoke/use snuff. Did it for about 5 years before I quit, but the snuff was MUCH harder to quit than smoking because you can do it all the time, and way bigger dose of nicotine per hit.

It is substance abuse, no doubt about it.

Very true, BUT, i would also not frequent those establishments. Since FL has banned smoking in places that get 51% of their revenue from food, i have been going out more, and enjoying myself a LOT more. The ban has been quite a boon for resturaunts. The law borders on necessary to keep smokers from trampling on MY rights.

Look it like this: resturaunts are private property. What if the proprietor decided to put in speed bumps every 5 feet in his establishment. Would you side with the property owner, or wheelchair bound people who are greatly inconvienced by the speed bumps?

1) Smoking has no benefits whatsoever, so comparing it to transportation is pretty fricking stupid.

2) Second-hand smoke has been documented to kill people. I'm allergic to tobacco and go into a major asthma attack and break out in hives any time I walk through the cluster of smokers always standing around the door to every building in town. Your right to swing your fist ends where my nose starts. You've got every right to own and shoot a gun, right? Do you have a right to walk around in the middle of town and just pop off shots whenever you feel like it?

Stop ruining your lungs and giving yourself cancer. More importantly, stop being a self-righteous dick about it.

Cool. I always see it like this: You don't have a right to eat in a smoke-free establishment, and I don't have a right to smoke in one. To me, it's a property rights issue. If the owner feels allowing smoking is detrimental to his business, he is free to ban it. If he feels that it helps, he is free to allow it. I'm free to choose where I'd like to eat. Simple.



Since FL has banned smoking in places that get 51% of their revenue from food, i have been going out more, and enjoying myself a LOT more. The ban has been quite a boon for resturaunts. The law borders on necessary to keep smokers from trampling on MY rights.


Again, you have no right to eat in a smoke-free environment, just as I have no right to smoke in one. If you are concerned about the health effects of environmental tobacco smoke, take heart in knowing that the oft cited EPA study that started this whole thing has long since been discredited.



Look it like this: resturaunts are private property. What if the proprietor decided to put in speed bumps every 5 feet in his establishment. Would you side with the property owner, or wheelchair bound people who are greatly inconvienced by the speed bumps?


Normally I'd refrain from responding to a blatant red-herring fallacy, but in this case I'll go right ahead. In your extreme and unlikely example, I'd call the property owner an asshole, refuse to frequent his establishement and leave it at that. I would not support any governemnt intervention on behalf of those negatively affected by his decision. If nothing else, I'm consistent.



Sometimes gov't regulation is necessary to keep people's rights INTACT



I agree 100%. The problem is you and I define rights differently. To you, being voluntarily subjected to smoke in a restaruant or bar is a rights violation. To me, telling a property owner that his decision to allow smoking in his establishement is illegal and subject to penalty is a rights violation.

I completely understand that most people hate the way cigarette smoke smells. I appreciate that people don't want to be subjected to something they dislike. I just want them to know that enacting legislation to correct what amounts a minor nuisance is a terrible thing to do, and is intellectually dishonest - particuarly when subjection is voluntary.

Fair enough?

"Here's an article written for this topic from my pro gun friend, Walter Williams":

The largest losers of America's anti-tobacco crusade aren't tobacco companies and smokers; it's the American people who are incrementally giving up private property rights. You say, "Hold it, Williams, I agree that people have the right to smoke and harm themselves, but they don't have the right to harm others with those noxious tobacco fumes!" Let's look at it, because harm is a two-way street. If you're allergic to tobacco smoke or just find its odor unpleasant, and I smoke in your presence, I harm and annoy you. However, if I'm prohibited from smoking a cigarette in your presence, I'm harmed because of a denial of what I find a pleasurable experience.

There's an obvious conflict. One of us is harmed. How can it be resolved? There are several ways. You might consider the harm I suffer trivial compared to yours. You could organize a sufficiently large number of people and lobby lawmakers to enact smoking bans in bars, restaurants and workplaces. Alternatively, I might consider the harm you suffer trivial, and organize a bunch of people and lobby lawmakers to mandate that smoking be permitted in bars, restaurants and workplaces.

Let's think about this for a moment. If you owned a restaurant and did not allow smoking, wouldn't you find it offensive if a law were enacted requiring you to permit smoking? I'm guessing you'd deem such a law tyranny. After all, you'd probably conclude, it's your restaurant, and if you don't want smoking it's your right. Similarly, I'd deem it just as offensive if smoking were allowed in my restaurant and a law were enacted banning smoking in restaurants.

The totalitarian method to resolve the conflict is through political power and guns. In other words, the group with the greatest power to organize government's brute force decides whether there'll be smoking or no smoking in restaurants. Totalitarians might justify their actions by claiming that bars, restaurants and workplaces deal with the public, and thus the public should decide how they'll be used. That's nonsense. Just because an establishment deals with the public doesn't make it public property.

The liberty-oriented method to resolve conflict is through the institution of private property. In fact, conflict resolution is one of the primary functions of private property, namely it decides who gets to decide how what property is used in what way. Put another way: Who may harm whom in what ways? In a nutshell, private property rights have to do with rights held by an owner to keep, acquire and use property in ways so long as he doesn't interfere with similar rights held by another. Private property rights also include the right to exclude others from use of property.

Under the liberty-oriented method of private property, as a means to conflict resolution, we'd ask the question of ownership. If the owner wishes his restaurant to be smoke-free, it is his right. Whether a smoker is harmed or inconvenienced by not being allowed to smoke in his restaurant is irrelevant. Similarly, if a restaurant owner wishes to permit smoking, it is his right, and whether a nonsmoker is harmed or annoyed is also irrelevant. In the interest of minimizing possible harm either way, it might be appropriate for restaurant owners, by way of a sign or other notice, to inform prospective customers of their respective smoking policy. That way, customers can decide whether to enter upon the premises.

In today's America, the successful anti-tobacco campaign has become a template for conflict resolution through the forceful imposition of wills through the political system. It's part of a continuing trend of attacks on private property rights. Private property rights are the bulwark for liberty and should be jealously guarded and not be sacrificed for the sake of expediency.

"Still think you have a right to petition the state to tell others how to behave on someone else's private property, you totalitarians? You don't have that right, only state controlled powers!" (IllinoisGun)

Not in New England...no smoking ANYWHERE!!!!

I've smoked most of my adult life. I say 'most' because I did not smoke while pregnant or while nursing (nearly 2 years with baby#2)

Ardoc, I dunno if this will help YOUR patients to quit, but my doc (whom I'd known for YEARS and who KNEW I smoked) told me I was pregnant then asked in the next breath, "Please tell me you're gonna quit while pregnant/nursing!"
I said, "Of course!"
He said, "Good. Because every time you want to light up a cigarette, I want to picture your baby sleeping in its crib. Then picture yourself holding a pillow over his head for 5 minutes. Not enough to suffocate him, just enough to cut down his air supply by approximately 1/2. Because every time a pregnant woman lights up, that is in effect what she is doing to her baby."

He then told me to go ahead and smoke one more and throw the pack away.

I never had that last one before throwing that pack away.
And I think he KNEW that's exactly how it would play out!
