Is it rude if a nonsmoker asks me to quit smoking?


I am a smoker, and I try to be very conscious of other people around me when I light up. I move away from other people and always stay far away from children. But if I am in a smoking permitted area first, is it rude if a non smoker asks me to not smoke? For example, if I go on the opposite end of a restaurant patio (far away from everyone else) and a non-smoker sits next to me when I obviously have my pack of smokes and lighter in plain view?
