Hello everyone, it is Wednesday here in my part of the world and for the second week I have Summer for the day while Kathy is at work, at the moment I have both Summer and Daemon, Kelli & Jess left Daemon here so Summer would have someone to play with and guess what Summer fell asleep within minutes of them leaving, she is now asleep on the floor near me and Daemon is busy watching telly.
So today I have another question for you, have you ever smoked or do you smoke now?
I am a non-smoker and will usually say I have never smoked but that isn’t the whole truth when I was a teenager I gave it a try but never really took to it, when I meet Tim I was still smoking at times when we went out but that only lasted a couple of weeks and I stopped completely and have never had any interest in doing it again.
I have three daughters and only one of them is a smoker, of course that would be Natasha my wild child although she did stop when she was pregnant with Blain but took it up again not long after he was born. You would think if one hadn’t smoked for 8 months they would not want to take it up again but not the case. My sister in-law also stopped smoking when she was pregnant but took it up again after she had my niece and my sister Sandra smoked during her pregnancy with Denni but not when she had Temika if I remember rightly.
Tim is a smoker but he has not smoked in this house ever, although I think when we lived at Gateshead he might have smoked in the flat, I don’t really remember it was so long ago. We have lived her for 26 yrs and I know he hasn’t smoked in this house, ok hang on that is not completely true he has and still does smoke in the bathroom with the exhaust fan on when it is raining outside.
Now I have to say I am not one of those people who have a problem with smokers, it doesn’t bother me and I have been known to go outside and talk to those who are out there smoking.
I know some people worry about second hand smoke or what was that phrase that was bantered about years ago………….passive smoking that’s it. Yes I know breathing in other peoples smoke may not be good for me but there are many things that are not good for us and if we worry or stress over all of them we will have a sucky life.
It is illegal to smoke in a car with a child under the age of 16 here in New South Wales in Victoria it is under 18, I am not sure how I feel about that I guess it is good but hell 18 some 18yr olds are smokers anyway.
