    If it's against the law, it's against the law.

    Without a law I would never smoke when I had my kids or grandsons with me. Why have them smell like smoke?

    Plus it's not good for them.

    I quit smoking when I adopted my son because I didn't want him picking up the habit from me, whether I smoked around him or not, but I am opposed to laws against smoking.

    I didn't like the laws when I smoked but abided by them. You can still smoke, just where it doesn't affect others.

    Truth is there are no health benefits to smoking and I curse the day I started. Haven't smoked in 11 years but quit too late in life. :(
