I don't like smokers, and refuse to be friends with any.?

Additional Details
I have tried to be friends with some people who smoke, but they always end up smoking around me, and I hate everything about cigarettes. Don't you think it would be quite awkward to ask them not to smoke?

destination heaven
Good for you!!!!

I think that is too extreme although it does help in that it gives the other person a choice be, your friend or be a cigarettes friend.

I don't smoke. But I do have smoker friends.
I understand that smoking is a very bad habit to break.

Where is the question?

Then I suppose you wouldn't want to be friends with me then....

I mostly hang out with smokers. But I hang out with a lot of nonsmokers too, including my girlfriend who does not smoke. Everyone knows that when they are at my house or in my car, I'm going to smoke. Whenever I'm around their house or car, I refrain from smoking near them (doesn't mean I don't smoke.)

Contrary to popular belief, most smokers will respect you if you ask them "nicely" not to smoke around you. But you also need to be realistic. Know that they will need to smoke occasionally and make the accommodations for them to do so.

I think the tragedy here is the fact that you have already judged them as unworthy of your friendship. Unless you are perfect (and your question definitely proves you are not), you probably have more than one bad habit that annoys other people (talking on your cell phone all the time, drink too much, etc.) Simply ask them to not smoke around you if it bothers you that badly. Most smokers I know are reasonable people who are happy to comply with the wishes of others. They are doctors, lawyers, nurses, firemen, policemen, clergymen, professors, military personnel, politicians, judges, waitresses, etc. In other words they are normal people who happen to have a problem being addicted to a drug that is more powerful than heroin. Instead of judging them, perhaps it would be wiser to offer them help, friendship and support. That would be the human thing to do.

Good luck finding friends. With your "holier than thou" attitude, you are going to need it.

the L eagle (DaRk WiNgS)
i seriously feel sad for u, cuz with the way u judge ppl ull end up having no friends whatsoever. r u trying to tell us that u have no addictions ? maybe u pick ur nose ! i feel disgusted from that ,ppl shouldnt be ur friends ,at least smoking isnt as disgusting as someone picking his nose huh? ,ur a confused and sad human being.

So what's the question?
"Am I an Arrogant Little *[email protected]*" ?
or are you looking for friends because you don't have any?

Well, I can understand your aversion to smoking in general, but do you have any idea how judgemental you sound?
Is that who you really want to be? Do you have any idea how many cool, fun people smoke? That's okay though, I'm a non smoker, and I wouldn't be friends with someone as shallow and thoughtless as you. I don't think the smokers are missing out on anything by your decision, so by all means carry on!

I understand you don't like smoking..but I don't understand how you can say you don't like smokers...they are people with an addiction..believe it or not ...they are also human beings... can be very good people and make very good friends...I think you are a little extreme...but of course that's just my opinion.

thats a shame. you are probably missing out on alot of good friends...maybe the next thing for you to do would be to not be friends with anyone who is a vegetarian...good idea huh!

bLu *
That's a little bananas. I mean think of all the great people you are missing out on because they smoke. I think you should be-friend anybody and if you find out they smoke you should politely tell them you don't want them to smoke around you and why. I mean if they are meant to be your friend or they are good people they wil agree to not smoke around you. Who knows. you might help a ton of people stop smoking.

Devil and the Chimechangas
As a person who smokes, I think it's a little odd that we categorize people like that... Smokers and Non-Smokers. Considering that nobody can smoke in public anymore, I think it's fair to say that we can't even call people smokers anymore. But to actually refuse friendship because someone smokes... a little strange. Einstein smoked, Fyodor Dostoeysky, Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Daniel Day Lewis, Tom Waits, and some of the most interesting and important people smoke. Would you really refuse an audience with Daniel Day Lewis becuase he smokes?

My name is Jonas
I'm a smoker and your attitude just makes me know that there's no way I could be your friend. Lighten up, we're not meth-heads.
