They are popping up more and more.

What are your thoughts on "smoking bans"?

Do you feel that the local governments shouldn't get involved with such things? Or do you feel for the safety and health of others that the bans are a good idea?

I happen to come from the first country to issue a smoking ban in all public buildings, pubs, restaurants, workplaces etc.

I was a smoker at the time and to be honest the actual ban didn't bother me. The idea behind it may have troubled me a bit. Now, I think it's been a remarkable success and one of the better things the government has done in years (which isn't saying much). I was surprised at how compliant everyone was as well. And it's a lot healthier in the pubs now, and I think the majority of people see it as a good thing.

Of course they also proposed some kind of ID card around the same time that would limit how many drinks you could have in any one pub. It died a death but if anything like that DID come in I would leave the country for good.

I'm all for 'em. I don't smoke and I'd like to be able to go to bars and not get smoky.

It's abhorrant.  If there was that big a demand for non-smoking bars that people would simply open non-smoking bars and put the smoking bars out of business.  Of course government has no business getting involved in it.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
