Smoking is a choice. You choose to light up, you choose to try to kill yourself.
Its not just the "15 seconds" its the chemicals and crap that also cling to your clothes and pollute the air around you for at least 1/2 hour after you've come back in.
As the wife of a cardiac patient - I'm all for more stringent rules when it comes to where one can smoke. Those "15 seconds" means he has to walk through chemicals which then cling to HIS clothing and damage HIS lungs and heart functions.
I'm sorry you're inconvenienced. However - my husband - who almost DIED 10 months ago - shouldn't have to have his health compromised because you don't want to walk an extra 20 feet. Neither should I. Neither should my children.
Yep. I'm fairly rabid on this subject.
