FFS - get some perspective man!
it's not that difficult, in London Bridge Station
especially, to walk a few feet into the road, to stop yourself from walking through 'clouds of acrid filth'.
sheesh - the speed of traffic there is less than walking pace anyway, if you really think the risk to your health is that big.
If it's really bothering you as much as you say it is, why not politely mention it to each person smoking on the footpath, as you walk past?
I guess you'll get lots of indignant replies, and people telling you to mind your own business.
Is it really worth the extra stress though?
take a chill pill, a few deep breaths whilst still in the station then while holding your breath walk quickly on the other side of the road. Or alternatively find a different route?
Whatever you do - it's not worth stressing so much about, there are far worse things happening in the world.
