If my Dad were alive, we would be celebrating his birthday later this month. Unfortunately, I've lost both my parents and a sibling to smoking related illnesses.

Because of that, if I see someone smoking and the opportunity arises, I ask them gently to stop, even if it only for the sake of their family. I also explain that I've lost family members because of smoking.

It raises a question though: if we see someone engaging in a practice that will, in all likelihood, shorten their natural life and possibly cause pain and suffering to themselves or others, do we gently engage them to ask them about their actions? Or, do we assume an attitue of "Not my monkeys, not my circus" and say nothing?
