  I don't believe the crap about secondary smoking. I find it
impossible to believe that cigarette smoke is the one substance that
is lethal in trace quantities, and a hundred times worse after being
filtered through lungs. I find it easier to believe that well-meaning
fanatics faked their results to make it seem so. If cigarette smoke
really *is* that dangerous in trace quantities, then the human race
is in a lot of trouble with smoke and gas in general.

  I gave up smoking 15 years again, but I have no qualms about
breathing other people's cigarette smoke. If I lived or worked amidst
smokers and breathed it all the time I might worry, but certainly not
casually. It's ridiculous... but believe what you will. Everyone does.
