Scotland has been a better place since smoking has been banned up here. I hate it and i really do think they shud tax the living shit out of it, and i mean increase the price on a pack of 20 to OVER 10, then maybe they cud look at lowering fuel duty by a couple of percent

Im a smoker and i couldnt agree more. I mean, even i hate sitting there having a drink or something to eat and someone is blowing smoke near me, its disgusting.

But i dont agree with people saying 'You want to kill your self then p*ss off', bit harsh. The ban is a good idea though, might even help me to quit lol smile

Please note, that many pubs have two bar area's, and they will be allowed to allocate one of the area's for non smoking and the other will be a smoking allowed area.

This is a good thing as the people who want to smoke will be able to continue whereas us people that don't appreciate having to breathe in other peoples smoke, dont have to.

I have a feeling many pubs will begin to think about re-designing thier bar area's/extending the building to allow a smoking area... so your plans may be scuppered Tupac lmao!

lol well at least it stops us from breathing in the stuff which improves it but it depends realli on the owners if they realli want to spend some money on improving so that both non smokers and smokers are allowed in.

You never know tho they mite have a trial to see if this ban realli works and that they dont have any loss of revenue.

In finaland they have had this for ages,

they have smoking tables only
and that a few around the bar area only.

BUT your not allowed to stand at the bar and Smoke.

I'm glad as it will help us quit,
i think eveyone who smokes deep down would love to kick the habbit.

We've been arguing this all day in work.

All the non-smokers can't wait for this to come into force, however, the smokers aren't so keen.

All smoking will be has already been banned in the workshop, but still a few of the lads don't care.

The problem is though, where to draw the line at public places. Sure this includes public transport, but what about the work vans? All the non-smokers have decided that it's okay for smokers to smoke as long as the non-smokers agree, or they are driving by themselves, otherwise strictly no smoking, but I doubt it'll be kept up.

So, personally, I can't wait for the law to come into effect, the sooner, the better smile

Thats not really a smoking ban then is it webby? This ban will mean that people are not allowed to smoke anywhere at all, except in pubs that have two "seperated" (and I stress this means an entirely seperate bar and room, not just a small partition) rooms where they can have one designated for non smokied and another where smoking is allowed.

wink

i work in a nursing home and they have a smoking staff room and a non smoking staff room. i dont agree with this at all.

Even thro smokers are smoking in one place, doesnt mean the smoke will stop at that certain point. it travels !!!

They do already, it's called a commodity tax, and they do the same to alcohol and confectionery.
I love smoking, it was banned in work at the start of the year, but everyone still does it, because no one cares about the ban (smoker or non-smoker). It annoys me that people find the energy to complain about an insignificant bit of cigarette smoke, yet flush their excrement into the sea everyday.

Excrements maybe flushed but it doesnt harm us, whereas smoking does. An there are organisations who clean up the mess and filter the waters so that it becomes re-useable again.



The Diagram shows that the things we flush dnt go straight to the sea but to the sewage treatments so they do clean it before letting it out to the sea.
