Missing a party also means missing smelling those second hand smoke from nearby smokers. Who by the way may be smoking a cheap macanudo cigars. We all know that second hand smoke is more dangerous than the first hand smoke. And so as much as possible I avoid smokers nearby. And missing a party is another way of avoiding those smokes. Though in respect with my smoker friends, they also are polite to take consideration to smoke in an open space away from us non smokers.
