Ok this is not a blog against smokers.
Go for it.
In fact, my brother and I grew up with the burning sting of log cabin tobacco in our eyes after sitting down to innocently watch A Country Practice on our lounge room floor almost every Sunday night.
We also sat in the back of his EJ (unbuckled of course) whilst he drank drove (OK back then) in a cloud of his unfiltered tobacco smoke.
All, I used to think, OK.
This however is a rant against people smoking around children.
It is not OK to smoke whilst they sit in the backseat of your shitty Commodore Sedan and blacken their lungs.
It is not OK to smoke at the school gate and offer a welcoming plume of poison to the kids going in the gates each day.
Frankly It is not OK to smoke anywhere where little kids have no say in the matter. It is not 1984 and you ignorant dipshits (no other adjective comes to mind - sorry) need to stop and more importantly, it needs to be enforced.
Plus, do not flick your dirty cigarette butt onto the ground, you dirty pigs.
Lastly, again, we all have our vices and I am the first to admit I have many. This is a blog about changing the use of cigarettes around little ones. Please contribute.
