The Compulsive - "Aren't you tired
of being a stooge of the tobacco
Often a former smoker with a chip on their shoulder, the Compulsive
anti-smoker constantly focuses on the concept of addiction and the habit
of smoking. Due to their own propensity towards obsessive behavior the
Compulsive assumes that all tobacco users share this personality trait.
Therefore, it is obvious that for the Compulsive, hating tobacco has
replaced smoking tobacco as a compulsive activity.
The Zealot - "I hope you get lung cancer, you addicted junkie"
Similar to the Compulsive, the Zealot anti-smoker is often a former
smoker. Weak willed and emotionally-driven, the Zealot needs to hate
tobacco in order to maintain their sense of moral superiority, or
perhaps even to squelch their own desire to smoke. Consequently, the
Zealot derives great personal satisfaction from attacking tobacco and
its users, and in their blind passion will resort to any tactic or
argument, even those bordering on the ridiculous, or inhuman.
The Whiner - "Your right to smoke stops where my nose begins"
The Whiner is often a never-smoker who, while magnanimously recognising
the rights of others to smoke, places their own presumed right to never
be exposed to tobacco smoke ahead of the right of others. Failing to
recognise the egotistical and sanctimonious flaw in their own reasoning,
the Whiner feels morally justified in attacking tobacco use.
Unfortunately this goes to the point where they betray themselves as
selfish and irrational children because of their extreme demands to
"tax, restrict, and humiliate" the smoker.
The Ninny - "See this article? Smoking is bad for you"
The Ninny is an un-creative blowhard who cites numerious articles, in
back-handed attempt to "get the message" out to smokers that smoking is
bad for them. For the Ninny, quantity is more important than quality,
and as a result will frequently cite bogus facts and As for the Ninny
him or herself, little is known about their own opinion as they rarely
respond to any direct questioning, preferring to hide behind the shield
of other people's words.
