Now it's true, I do consider myself a Libertarian. I have written before how I think ALL drugs should be legal. After all its your body, you should be allowed to put whatever you want into it. But I absolutely hate smoking. I can't stand the smell, having cigarette smoke in my face, and how both of those will ruin clothes, paint, and basically everything it comes in contact with. So how can I justify banning smoking while supporting freedom? When I realized the part I hate wasn't the cigarette itself, but the second hand smoke. You want to shove a flaming death stick in you face, go ahead. But the second that smoke leaves your mouth, or the end of your cigarette, it had better not come near me. You are free to smoke; however your supposed "addiction" does not override my wanting to breathe oxygen and not wanting to smell like an ashtray. Simply put, your choice to smoke in public infringes on my freedom to choose NOT to smoke, and is therefore illegal (or at least it should be).
