Secondhand smoke is only harmful if it's a case where you are chronically around someone who smokes indoors.
I agree that there are far too many poisonous environmental influences these days to get nit picky about cigarette smoke, however, it is still gross and unpleasant for anyone who isn't a smoker to be forced to inhale someone elses smoke when they are completely oblivious of just how disgusting it is. I find it very selfish, but again, I know that smokers have every right to kill themselves slowly if they so choose.
