9. Not smoking, but I was on the receiving end of that
when I was pregnant. I was eating out and had a beer with my meal; a fellow patron came up to me and said that I shouldn't be drinking in my condition. I replied that his concerns were misplaced and he was not as well informed about drinking and pregnancy as he thought (and it's true - the warnings against ever having a drink while pregnant are based on a preventative model of treatment; the idea is that if you let a woman have one drink, she'll think it's OK to have several, and before you know it, you have a pregnant woman drinking every day which in fact *may* be an actual danger). He huffed away, and our meal stayed serene.
