    Default Smoking outdoors

    Hi Everybody,

    I know this will be a controversial thread, since I think most Americans are anti smoking. Anyway I smoke. Lately I found that some Dominicans are extremely molested even when somebody smokes outdoors.

    When I smoke, like in a carwash, I never smoke inside. I sit far away from the people. If it is very crowded, I stand up and move away from the people to smoke minimum 5 meters(15 feet) away from them. I choose my table according wind direction.

    Some Dominicans even if more 10 meters(30 feet) away make annoyed gestures like whipping their hands in front of their noses, or they say "apaga el cigarillio me molesta". No way way, they say "could you please smoke somewhere else or so". No way they would say it in a friendly way.

    So my question is: What are your experiences with this matter and how would you react?

    This question is not about smoking at all. I think it's anybodies choice. Please let's not make it a smoker vs anti smoker thread.

    If someone continual farted and you was subjected to that foul smell even 30' away, how would you react?

    You have 2 options:

    1) Stand your ground and don't give a sh%#$.
    2) Leave.

    Of course you have a 3rd option, but that is not part of the discussion.

    Smoking is most irritating to ex smokers. After they have been ex smokers for 5 years or so, the smell is no longer bothersome.
    A cigar at four paces might bother me, as an ex smoker, but a cigarette outdoors at 15 feet, never.

    If a smoker respects me (like smoking 5 m away from me), I do not find it annoying. And I don't like such intolerance to smokers

    I really hate it when people smoke around me while I drink to excess.
