In reply to Kate Forde (letters, December 21).

I totally agree with you but be careful how you mix your words.

I am a smoker and consider other people and mostly children when I feel the need to have a puff- up.

Smoking is an addiction, and dangerous to your health and people around you.

The argument here is that you are calling smokers filthy, and I quote - ''I saw people looking around at the filthy people.''

The smokes may be filthy and the sucker on the end is putting their health in danger, not making them a filthy person.

You make my blood boil.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
