Smoking is fine, as long as you're not doing it near non-smokers. Take, for example, my mom. If somebody lights a cigarette near her, the smoke can put her into an asthma attack, such that she's unable to breathe. So when she pulls out her inhaler, the smokers act like she's malingering (pretending to be sick) to make them feel bad.
So, smoke to your heart's content (poor choice of words), but don't do it near doorways, esPECIALLY near the door to the ER in front of the hospital.
Seriously. What kind of an asshole smokes in front of a hospital? so that every person who needs medical attention has to first breathe in their cigarette? Yeesh.
Not saying you smoke in front of hospitals, but that always makes me angry.
Anyway, why don't you just... Hold the cigarette to the side?
