Like a pictureless, a closeted, a discreet, or whatever, they intentionally inflict harm upon themselves. It's in the list of things that are deal breakers in my selection process.
Smoking stinks. Most smokers, aren't "hot" anyway, because of the damage it does to their face. Bottom line is that you have to ask yourself some serious questions about folks that engage in self-destructive behavior. It's just added baggage, and with 6.6 BILLION folks in the world, it's not worth the grief of dealing with. There's better people to pick from.
No, every time, is my answer.
If I post on Craigslist, or so on, I specifically state that tobacco users needs not apply. It gets me hate email but, it is what it is. I don't like being around it, and I'm real honest in my selection process. Gets back to that thing of sound judgment and not being all-accepting.
It's like the fat kid thing. It should be unacceptable for folks to kill themselves in such a fashion.
My mom is the only one of her peers that smoked that is still alive. The rest, well, they're dead...lung cancer. My mom has emphysema, and is on oxygen. She got lucky in her tobacco use, and is just tethered to the oxygen, but, her life was spared. Cigarettes, when used as intended will kill you, as we all know. Like eating yourself to death as in obesity, it's the same thing...a death wish in progress. If you've ever seen someone in the hospital with lung cancer... hopefully you'd stop. I know...I know..I know...fat people just keep eating, too.
Oh, and my mom stopped smoking back in the early 80's...it's probably why she'll still alive.
I hate seeing young people puffing. It's such a sad commentary on how humans are so very self-destructive.
I won't act as an enabler to that death wish though. Just how it is.
