    No, I wouldn't Opie. I never throw them out the window. I use an ashtray in my car.
    It's people that do junk like that, in any case, that makes it hard on those of us that try to do the right things.
    I am courteous to non-smokers, but I also expect the same thing.
    It's my choice, right or wrong. I don't get in a non-smokers face for stinking of some cheap cologne or perfume, so I resent constantly hearing how horrible I am.

    Sorry op, just feel like ranting today. It's all rainy and gloomy out. :wink2:

    Hey, I'm on your team, I've been smoking for over 20 years. I keep hoping one day I wake up and pitch 'em but I am weak when it comes to that.

    Edit: I pitch 'em out the window, but after reading that, things will change.

    Hey Deb - Hey Jimmy. I wouldn't want to be responsible either. When I smoked, I used the ash tray in my car. Never throw it out a window. Jersey cops have been known to stop people for that.

    I thought this was gonna be a story about that guy running loose in Miami. They call him the Smoker Poker. He's taking anti0smoking to new levels. He rides around on a scooter jamming huge dildo's into the rear ends of smokers without notice.

    That natural and casual flick of a cigarette out of a car window or while standing on the street always bugged me. I remember taking a trip many years ago from NYC to Bogota, Columbia and being struck by how much cleaner the streets were in Bogota. Now from speaking to Columbians they considered Bogota the dirtiest city in their country. The main difference to my eye was all the cigarette butts in NYC. I remember feeling embarrassed as an American.

    the start point of that fire is but two blocks away from me, it was still smoldering all over this morning and the fire department was staged at the Elementary school which they protected from said fire. Same school I did my history program at last week for the fourth graders. The very good news above no injuries is it is downwind, no stink here.

    Honestly, burning stuff down was one of the main reasons I quit. Along with health, obviously. I always had that fear.

    Seems like the logical choice...but just not as cool.

    Thanks op. It seems you always have my back.
    Maybe one day I'll quit, but to tell the truth right now, I don't want to.
    I know all the health issues etc. etc. etc. My thing is, I'm an adult and I resent that people can tell me what to do (or try to) in the privacy of my home or in my car. The government nationally and locally should stay out of my business.
    Maybe try to do something to help people instead of treating smokers like lepers. I don't buy the fact their worried about any ones health.
    oops! did it again! :yes:
