Smoker asks to be left alone

-A A +A

It seems like every time I pick up the newspaper or turn on the television, I see something about how it’s wrong to smoke or how the government wants to curb or ban smoking.
Do you all not have anything better to do than to frown on or criticize our habit? Some people cannot just kick the habit like others can. I admire anybody who can quit cold-turkey, but I am hooked and cannot just quit.
You know there are worse things than smoking. Insurance companies will not insure smokers or if they do, they’re skeptical about us. I want you all to just leave us alone and go target someone else.
