Users of tobacco have often been treated as citizens with the plague. One young lady who we will call Stephany, has been smoking for several years feels as though she has been stricken with leprosy. “Honestly, I have a few friends who smoke who totally understand what I am going through, but the people who are closest to me, don't want to be anywhere near my proximity because of the way that cigarettes make me smell. I can't say that I really blame them but it still hurts. I'm really feeling that I am being treated like a second class citizen with my personal rights taken away.”
Stephanie is not alone in how she feels. It is estimated that over 54 million people in the United States alone feel the same stigma. So where is the love? Where is the understanding? Answer: It's just not there. If you are a smoker, you are not considered as part of the mainstream.
