Actually I do not use any extra colognes or air fresheners. Again when you say they are full of carcinogens, which they are, it is not in the same amount second hand smoke is, which is fully carcinogens.
What an ignorant thing to say. So if perfumes (full of carcinogens) only indirectly affect your health you're cool with that? I'd say they affect your health about as directly as smelling cigarette smoke. I hope you don't use cologne/perfume, Febreze or air freshener, or anything scented. Those are all made up of chemicals, most of which are carcinogens that you choose to breathe into your delicate lungs.
Smoking, although an addiction and an unhealthy habit for me, kept me going through one of the worst times in my life. To say that they were unnecessary would be self-righteous and biased, as they were good for my mental health at the time.
And they are unnecessary because while you're only solving the craving for your addiction, you are also cutting your life down. Smoking in public which gives a lot of people unnecessary health risks, which may help you mentally (really doesn't) is self-righteous.
