51. I don't think the word anti means what you think it means..
You are pro-prohibition as far as smoking goes. You may be anti-prohibition on other products, but that just means you're a hypocrite as you have decided that there are only certain items that you deem to be inappropriate. You further that sentiment by using a broad brush to claim that smokers are stupid people when in fact most smokers are well aware that smoking is bad for them and they do it anyway.

Essentially you're a typical member of the Ban Brigade in that you don't realize you're standing on a slippery slope as you try to ban one persons vice while claiming your own is okay.
