The luxury of having an opinion

Leave a comment

Often when you express yourself about smoking, fragrance and other pollution many people have strong opinions.

When it comes to smoke bans and strikt smoke bans in the form of laws and legislation many smokers have strong opinions meaning they are being bullied for being smokers and wanting to smoke. That they feel limited in their lives.

Having the luxury to have a mere opinion us who have lung disease do not have, for us it is about life necessity.

We can not choose to have one or another opinion, it does not matter what we think about smoking ourselves,  our lungs get sick from it and it affects our very quality of life.

We maybe one by one not want a smoke ban out of opinions, we need it out of necessity.  We can not be convinced it is a bad idea banning smoke, since it is not only a matter of opinion.  It is not like with many people who just do not like it or just do not want it, we can not choose if we want it or not, we do not have that luxury only having a opinion. 

It is the same with fragrance. Lot of fragrance may smell nice, just as we might perceive smoke smelling badly, but the reality is that it does not matter what we think of the smell. We do not have that luxury. Our lungs decide for us, and the lungs do not care what we think.

When we say no to smoking, praise smoke bans that you are against, and claim the need of scent bans it is not because we have a mere opinion you can make us change. We do not have the luxury of being able to change. We can not be influenced by your opinions to change our ways. That you can do. You have that luxury.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
