If your neighbour don't like your face, can he sue you too ?? Ever heard of personal space ???
Do I have that about right?
Your rights stops within your four walls .. maybe you are used to extending it all over the kampong :) Or maybe you are used to different laws ..
If you really love your children and care about their health, you will quit or not smoke in front of them. That is the normal people thinking except those "special people". In other words, you will try your best to keep your child away those smoke....cos you yourself already sacrificing.
Yah, right - you are correct - but then again, did you know smoking damages your sperm count, and giving up doesn't fix it ?? there you go .. now can you say something .. (I am quoting you as your said you quit - Too late mate .. sad to say .. )
Example, if a person smoke and blow the smoke to your child and make your kid couge. Do you will be smile to him, say thank you so much OR angry and stare at him??
No sir, nobody seems to be blowing smoke in your child's face .. this is more like you complaining that people are blowing smoke into your house..

And somewhat akin to what some people used to do during those days when smoking was allowed in bars: some people go and stand near the guy smoking and then complain they don't like the smoke and the smoker should stop - and almost always the answer is for the guy who don't like the smoke to move away - though the latter will go on to say they like the place, because can see band etc etc ... And I even saw some guys being asked to leave, and go to places with non-smokers, if they dont like the smell .. ah- and now with the smoke rooms, one guy was picking a fight with another, as the latter had been in the smoke room, and the former didn't like the smell - damn - what is wrong with these people ??

Now, in your case, now tomorrow, if your other neighbour says he don't like your apartment smell, or your cooking smell - Pray, enlighten my feeble soul - how will you handle that ??

No sir, I am not arguing: just trying to understand your Newtonian Brain ..

PS: atleast you are entertaining enough to never answer any question directly .. were you a Public Relations person / Spin Doctor ???

Damn sure did, didn't he. I never realized that the passive smoke from a husband in the next room wasn't the same as the passive smoke from a stranger. And that considering that it's drifted around outside and been mixed and diluted with outside air and then drifted into their window.

That, or the smoking that he did before he quit really burned up some cells, both blain and reproductive types. :lol:

Well if there was an open window between them, I know what I'd do
:D that is what a rational person does, but our dear friend will open the window wide or place a fan to suck in more air and then complain :)

So, do you see the bigger picture? there are many places being ban for non-smokering for the past few years. In my view, those non-smoker just pity for those smokers and walk away cos they have no much time "left". Do you will expect there will total ban for non-smoking in everywhere in near future?

You are really persistent aren't you ??? :D

Let me ask you again: you used to be a smoker, and you had fun with smoke .. and why do you whine and moan about other people who havent' had the smoking fun ?? :D :D In a different like, it is similar to somebody who told me to warn some guys who were going to a binge drinking session - my friend said "you used to do it, now let them have fun .. " :D :D

Make sense ??

Used to be that the reason of more understand the issue. If we have experience it is an bad habit, we should encourage those not to follow and throw them into trap. Especially, smoking.... That how we can improve.

If they insist, maybe suggest them to move to Malaysia as there is an free zone for them. ok?

There are currently free zones in Singapore. So, while there still is, they are welcome to enjoy. When there isn't, they will have to worry about it when it happens. Until then, they have as much rights as you have. In fact, they don't have as much rights as they are limited to where they can smoke, you are not limited to where you can't.

Oh, I'm an ex-smoker as well. I just passed 6 years smoke free but while my home is smoke free, my son smokes but has to go outside to smoke. In my house it's my right. Outside it's their right. If I don't like the drifting smoke I close the door or window. Easy-peasy. But I don't whine and cry on forums about it.

You are on the one hand saying we should encourage people to quit smoking.

Or simply else send everyone over to Malaysia so our poorer neighbours can enjoy all the second hand smoke.

That's just so typical. And people of this country sometimes wonder why our neighbours instead of kissing our feet and worshipping us, actually dislike us.
