Stop Smoker-Shaming

19 Jan

THE POWER OF THE PURSE SHOULD BE IN THE HANDS OF TOBACCO USERS – TAKE IT BACK – STOP THE MONEY FLOW – DON’T QUIT SMOKING OR VAPING – QUIT PAYING TO QUIT! SMOKING OR TO SMOKE! WITHOUT OUR MONEY THEY WILL BE OUT OF BUSINESS AND FOR US IT’S NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS!

How long has it been since your last cigarette? Twenty minutes? Almost an hour? It’s been forever, and the relief is enough to send you to the moon.

However, the good vibes are soon killed as a passerby obnoxiously begins coughing in exaggerated hacks and wheezes. “That’s disgusting,” someone says. “Put that out.” “Quit polluting my air.” “Smoking is gross,” someone says without being asked. “You should be ashamed of yourself.” “You stink.”
