Smoking, that includes passive smoking, is a definite health hazard. Not many people know that those who sport moustaches and smoke are at a greater risk because the smoke as well as the other compounds (read toxins) released are adsorbed onto the bushes on the upper lip. These are then continuously inhaled even after the last butt has been stubbed.
What about smokers who genuinely care about their family and don’t smoke in their house? I have a neighbor who does not want his kids to inhale the nicotine that he is blowing in the wind. The smart thing to do is sit outside his flat which unfortunately is adjacent to mine and puff away to glory. So what if my children are allergic to the smoke and get recurrent chest infections. His loves his kids too much and won’t let them suffer. I have shooed away the people who work for him in a small home office that he and his wife run in their apartment. When they smoke outside my apartment, they have to face my wrath, but I haven’t been able to be as ugly with their employer who after all is a loving father.
Homeopathy has a medicine called Caladium that can reduce the craving for tobacco. I might just lace my neighbor’s water with it so that he quits smoking!
