    Default WHAT'S UP WITH ALL THE CIGARETTE SMOKING???

    Love being with you all at Coachella BUT... what's up with all of the cigarette smoking?
    I WANT A NON-SMOKING SECTION PLEASE!!! AND PEOPLE, I KNOW YOU'RE FLYING HIGH AND HAVING A GREAT TIME BUT PLEASE - IF YOU HAVE TO SMOKE, HAVE SOME CONSIDERATION!!! PLEASE EXHALE YOUR CIG SMOKE ON YOURSELF AND DON'T SPEW YOUR GROSSNESS ALL OVER THE AIR THAT THE REST OF US HAVE TO BREATHE.
    Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT.

    Smoke containing nicotine is inhaled into the lungs, and the nicotine reaches your brain in just six seconds.
    Thank you!

    I thought I saw more smoking this year, along with more of those smokers smoking without any regard for people around them, paying attention to neither where they held their lit cigarette nor to where they blew their smoke.

    I did see some people that tried to blow smoke up and actually on Saturday there was a lady who had sat down near me who after lighting a cigarette asked if it was bothering me and then moved out of the way, which was incredibly kind. There were also at least a few folks I knew that knew me well enough to know that I am allergic and kept their distance when smoking, for which I am also very grateful.


    There are many things about Coachella that I will miss but being around all that cigarette smoke is not one of them.

    Thanks for the information. As a cigarette smoker, I will take this into consideration. I really had NO idea it was an unhealthy habit.


    On second thought, fuck off, and go to non-smoking shows at the Greek and such. Thanks.

    Whoops. I had no idea. I am one of those people that blow their smoke up in the air though.

    I can avoid cigarette smoke. It's just the dicks that treat the world like their ashtray that can go get fucked.
    Cig butts all over the ground, especially in the Do Lab.

    that part does suck. i made sure the people i was with who smoked threw them in the trash. stuck around after everyone was kicked out one night and it is insane how much cleaning they do. there is an article mentioning how the owner of the fields, mr. haagen, hires 300 or so people for the maintenance crew over the weekend and that if a cig. butt is seen it will be picked up, one found later that was missed, it will be picked up. felt horrible for the older mexican dude i saw that night walking around having to bend over and pick up every piece of trash around him due to lazy people who can't clean up after themselves. i guess the positive is that it gives the guy a job to do to put money in his pocket.

    Yeah man I felt bad for those people too. It's a shitty job but somebody has to do it. Thankfully those guys have some work.

    It is fucking ridiculous how fucking lazy everyone is with their trash, I can never get over that. Yeah I may have forgotten a bottle at the end of the night due to exhaustion or being completely tossed but I try and make up for it by picking up two more that I see on the ground. It's more upsetting to see Goldenvoice's apathy towards a more clean festival, I thought they were going in the right direction with more water refill stations and a more visible water bottle exchange program. Seems like that might have bit just a tad too much into their profits so they reduced everything including the number of spigots per fountain and basically hid the TRASHed exchange in the Terrace area as oppose to the other side of that hedge making it more convenient and visible...fuck this isn't even the right thread to bitch about it's just such a pet peeve of mine.

    seriously what the hell is wrong with all of you people? Why do you all have to be such bloody pricks to everyone? She's right... there was a shit ton of assholes smoking like 12 ciggs while having a conversation with 10 friends in the middle of a set in a tent. I've said it in tons of other threads, and i'll say it in this one. This festival attracts loser douchebag fuckheads that have no idea what "going to a festival" means. Its about everyone struggling through the heat and the exhaustion together to enjoy amazing acts... i've been to bonnaroo twice and both times never did i notice as much ciggarette smoking in a common area. If your gonna smoke, go smoke by yourself.
    Does anybody feel this way?

    congrats, your thread here doesn't make me want to break my smokes in half and quit right away. so unless you have a medical condition where cigarette smoke renders you incapable of having a good time at this great outdoor festival, then please, keep it to yourself.

    oh and i'm a 'polite' smoker who goes to the edges of the tent or the edges of the crowds before i light up.

    And i hope someone manages to punch you in the dick soon, because you deserve it.

    and to the post above that, thats great your a respectful smoker but 95% of the smokers there weren't. Every tent was LITTERED with ciggarette butts. If you can't not see a single show without smoking 12 ciggs, then maybe you shouldn't attend festivals.... or do anything of value at all for that matter.
