It is my suspicion - could use some feedback - that the people standing outside buildings in the cold soon become addicted to this aspect of their behavior as well, and that one reason why such bans have been tolerated is that they become conditioned not to resent it.
Ummm, this just makes no sense. See, the "other stuff" in cigarettes are chemicals designed to enhance the effect of nicotine that are inhaled and affect the nervous system.
Frankly I have never heard of a person becoming addicted to "Standing outside."
There is some truth to the statement. One of the things I miss most is going outside to have a smoke. It gives you a reason to take a break and go outside. My wife misses it too. She quit with me and she misses the trips outside with coworkers. I hid my smoking from work, since I have a rather public position (no I wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢?Â¬Ã¢?Â¢t tell).
I think there are many reasons people want to continue smoking. Hopefully recent deaths in the news will help me continue my personal battle with Camel.
