Some people who smoke either hide their smoking, or flat-out lie about smoking period. Smokers who do this are usually the type of smokers with lots of income. Surveys like to make you believe most smokers are high school dropouts.
If this is true, then why did I see college students....TONS of them BTW....smoking in my cllege days? I bet lots of college students still smoke even with smoking bans being more common on the college campuses.
Those stats on the number of smokers across the nation in the US also ignore the fact there might be lots of secret smokers (closet smokers) out there.
I have nothing to hide about my smoking. If someone asks "Do you smoke?" I'm saying "Yes, I smoke. And if you don't like that, then FU." Good luck in finding a nonsmoker who's nice just like me. But a lot of nonsmokers (unlike me) lack some intelligence.
Well, I shouldn't say ALL nonsmokers are stupid. Some of them actually support the right to smoke in public.
