    Harrassing Smokers

    Any other smokers tired of the questions we are being asked at medical appt/ dental appts? I personally don't think it is any of the dental tech/dentist/doctor's business if I smoke, how much I smoke, or if I plan to quit. Smoking suits me for now and I will quit when ready.

    Anymore I just make up random answers to their prying questions...

    "Do you smoke?"
    "Yeah."
    "How much per day?"
    "Alot."
    "Really? Do you plan on quiting?"
    "No."
    "Well ok then.."

    Maybe because it can be used as an explanation for what they find, ya think?

    What they find? I go there because I'm told to go there. I am quite aware of the health risks involved.

    I think there is more to it.

    After, I'd venture to say, hundreds of such conversations with a healthcare provider, I'm pretty sure my smoking is well documented in my record.

    Maybe it is so when you come down with lung cancer or some other smoking related disease they can do a LOD on you can deny your medical coverage. Maybe it is so when the military bans smoking completely they know who to check on to see if they are smoking. Maybe it is so they can give you substandard care because you are gonna die anyway. And maybe you should just answer the few questions because it takes about 30 seconds and deal with it. Or you could quit smoking.

    Yes I am a non smoker.

    When I was a smoker, I asked my provider why I keep getting harrased. It's because it is required by the AF tobacco use AFI.

    Steve,

    Don't know if anyone has ever been completely honest with you, but smoking and smokers STINK!!!

    Their breath stinks, their clothes stink, their bodies excrete a smoky sweat stink, their budget for paying $5 a pack stinks, their second-hand smoke that non-smokers breathe stinks, their ashtrays stink, their smoking areas stink, their houses stink, their cars stink, their yellow tobacco-stained teeth stink, their diminished lung capacity stinks, and finally, the money that taxpayers have to fork out to pay for increased medical costs due to smoking stinks.

    Any stinking questions?
