For both smokers and nonsmokers, tobacco can determine one’s daily activities, livelihood, relationships, and health. Tobacco can determine matters from as important as keeping or losing one’s job to matters as trivial as deciding where to have lunch. If one is allergic or addicted, the entire day’s routine, indeed, one’s whole life must take into account this fact: A chronic smoker cannot leave the house without her cigarettes and lighter and can only go where she will be able to smoke; a nonsmoker with severe allergies must also plan his daily activities to avoid exposure to smoke and other irritants.
