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.
