Re: Outdoor smoking



To the Editor:
I would like to talk about the wildest thing I have seen during this season. It would have to be all the smokers huddling outside any and every building on campus in -40 degree weather just to get their fix.

I realize it is an addiction, but come on people, there are warnings to stay inside, because exposed skin will freeze in less than two minutes and I still see 10 people outside the Social Sciences Centre lighting up. I mean, do you need your fix that bad? Are you willing to risk your health just to have a cigarette – err, I guess that is a stupid question, seeing as the fact you are having a cigarette is already risking your health.

The other thing I want to say about you is I and non-smokers like me have to walk through your second hand smoke and all your butts, just to get into the buildings.

Now I am a non-smoker and I am not saying you all have to stop, but do you not see logic in stopping? There are many reasons to stop smoking in the winter – you'll save money, it's healthier and it is DAMN COLD OUTSIDE!
