I told myself when I stopped that I would never become "that guy", the one who looks down his nose at smokers and gives them a look of disgust when he spots them lighting up. However, I am starting to get some really strong emotions against smokers now when I see them, I just cant help it. I was walking down the street the other day and a man blew smoke right into my path and I felt like it was a physical assault on my person, I actually wanted to punch him and Im not usually a violent person.
There's a group of smokers who take up the entire pavement on the other side of the road to where I live (there's a large office there and they are all made to smoke off premesis) again I have to try really hard not to say something when I walk past them now, I usually just scowl at them as if they have just committed some horrible crime. How DARE they make me breathe their filthy smoke after Ive gone through hell to stop from breathing in toxic fumes.
I hope this will go away, I'm not a hateful person and its hugely hypocrytical of me to have these emotions against people who are only doing exactly what I was doing half a year ago!
