Does anybody else here live in a big city? I ask that because I have been living in one now for about 7 or 8 months. And while I do enjoy it the quality of the air is really starting to get to me. Even when I go back to my hometown which is a much smaller city I feel like I can actually breathe. Then when I go out to the country I just wish I could bottle the air up and take it with me. Here everything always smells like fumes or cigarette smoke. I don't even want to know the amount of toxins I inhale each day just by walking down the street. I don't smoke, but everyone else here does. And smokers in this city are rude and smoke into other peoples faces. They won't go and smoke off in a quiet corner or alley, they smoke as they walk down really busy city streets with their smoke going into everyone else's faces. I can't even sit in my own room with my bedroom window open for 1 hour without my whole room filling up with cigarette smoke about 4 times from people on other balconies. Which now means I can't open my window at all so I can never get fresh air in my room. I'm a non smoker but I'm pretty sure I inhale the equivalent of a pack of smokes every week in this place. I don't even want to think about what it must be like for people who live in big cities like New York for their whole life. I miss air!
