66. a cloud of perfume far more painful than cigarette smoke
Edited on Wed Jan-03-07 11:50 AM by pitohui
i speak as one w. long term allergic rhinitis

cigarette smoke is rarely an allergen while flowers (often found in perfume) commonly are

i realize people who don't have allergies think that their reaction to cigarette smoke is an allergy, they have no idea

i don't smoke and i don't defend smoking, but neither do i defend anyone claiming that tobacco allergy is as common anywhere NEAR as common as allergies to pollen, cats, dust mites, etc. -- this is something totally unsubstantianted by medical science, indeed, in many cases people completely invent having cigarette allergies, they have no medical history of this
