  2. i’m in agreement on that … hate kissing a smoker! 😉

  3. YEAH! smoking bad, not smoking good.

  4. good riddance to bad rubbish…

    I am so happy…now i don’t have to smell like an ash tray when i leave the bar!!!

  6. People might complain about it now, but they will all be happy in the long run. You’ll especially appreciate it when you travel someplace that still allows smoking indoors, and you’ll wonder how you ever put up with it before.
