    Smoking Ban

    So, who's going to suffer, and who will thoroughly enjoy it?

    Bit of both i like to smoke, but i also dont like to smoke, and this is the place where i most like to smoke.

    So it should stop the casual smoking i sometimes partake in

    Well its going to help when you go out, but you just know some people arent going to care and light up 2 ft away from the doors entrance to a banned place.
    And secondly, if you live with a smoker, no real chance of getting away from the blasted "aids in a stick"
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I went out last night and I stank of smoke. It seemed everyone was making the most of it. I'm glad this horrible thing has been banned from pubs and bars. I still think they should ban it from crowded public places though like high streets.

    Its an excellent idea.

    One of the THE worst places that I know of for smoke, is the Stott Lane entrance to Hope Hospital in Salford. There are people sat in wheelchairs, with drips, smoking away and there was one bloke that had been wheeled down by a nurse, and he had a drip full of blood on a stand next to him

    You can walk around 30m inside the hospital and it still stinks of smoke, and that goes for all the other entrances as well, and people seem to stand further inside on colder days.

    People outside Tesco waiting for a taxi, stood just inside the doorway of tesco smoking, thats another, and if you are stood with a load of bags of shopping, you dont want it stinking of smoke.

    All the smokers that bleat on about having their rights taken away, know deep down that its nothing to do with that, its because they are weak and dont have the balls to give up

    No flaming please, there is a smoking ban

    I smoke and i say Yes to the ban, however the first suit that tells me i can't smoke in my back garden is going to a shotgun up the nose

    I smoke and support the ban.
    But I dont drink so dont frequent pubs so makes no odds and I hate ingnorant smokers who light up in restaurants with no thought to folks eating near them.
    They should be shot not fined.
    But can somebody explain to me what difference its going to bring to our polluted atmosphere.
    I live near Stansted so I am polluted from that.
    A dualled very busy bypass is less than a mile away and I live in a small village surrounded by fields which are constantly sprayed with noxious substances.
    So I reckon I will probably end up with cancer of some sort anyway.
    Yep the bans fine with me. Trouble is the zealots out there will keep on pushing and that just makes me feel like pushing back. With my fist.
    I will give the nasty things up when I am good and ready and when I find an alternative mix for my herbs

    Three cheers for the ban....people who smoke are bloody idiots anyway....and I should know, I used to smoke. You smoke near me and my kids and I want to beat you to death anyway, so this is one less potential fatility, never mind how many people will quit 'cause they can't smoke in enclosed spaces any more.

    I smoke but im an Englishman living in Wales so im used to it now as its been outlawed here since the end of April.

    TBH...you get used to it really quick.

    Definitely a 'nanny-state' rule though.

    I dont think idiots, i think that alot of smokers want to quit but cant , and some want to smoke they know the implications and still do it... And its not like you and your kids cant move the same ass they can..

    Although i agree with it i think that both sides of the story need to come into play, hence why i think that it shouldnt be banned in public places.. might asswell ban alchahol too, that kills people!
