    I always find holding the cig under the table in the pub worked best for avioding engulfing over people.
    And if you watch it, it's actually very hypnotic to watch smoke gather a thick layer under the table whilst some of it escapes . . . makes your own fingers smell extra good too

Go to a hospital and speak to one of the clinical staff and see how many people on the medical wards are there because of smoking, you will be shocked.
    Totally off thread, but are you a doctor or a nurse? just wondered

    likely because if they were staff they might have thought u was a patient.... either that or they didnt appreciate walking past 15 smokers standing on the doorstep so they could get into the place

    I smoke, and have done so now for quite a few years. Like a few of the other members that smoke, I too am aware of smoking amongst non-smokers and try not to waft smoke towards them.

    I am also very much aware of the price of cigarettes in this country, and the ever growing number of people that wants smoking ban. But lets say that everyone has to pay say around £3000 more in tax a year, I'm sure less people will speak up against it.

    I may be a big guy but i don't nearly equate to 15 people

    Spose they could've thought i was a patient, I never thought about what smoking patients in hospitals do though cos they're obviously not gonna be allowed to smoke on the wards.......
