Well sort of - all enclosed public places from July 1st next year. This means all pubs whether they serve food or not. Fantastic news, long overdue. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/619691…

[SIZE=2] SMOKING BANS
Irish Republic: March 2004
Scotland: March 2006
Northern Ireland: April 2007
Wales: April 2007
England: July 2007

I'm happy too, but I will admit it's Draconic, the problem is that people aren't able to regulate themselves so they need laws to do it for them.

I still get peeved with people that smoke at Tube Stations, I don't care if it's in the open air, if I'm down wind of you I can still inhale it!

Of course now one of the best reasons I had not to go to a pub has gone out the window.
I wonder if people will drink more to make up for their frustration, or just get more frustrated that they can't smoke and become more aggresive :?

Yup, it's so nice to be able to go to the pub and not want to shower the second I get home!

A lot of pubs will probably have a smoking area in the beer garden . That means the bar won't be hogged and it will be easier to get served lol :-D

Hunting banned, almost everywhere. Err, No! Another unenforcable imposition on the public at large. Don't blame me, I have never voted Labo........ugh!

How many 'bans' have been put in place since 1997?

Is one allowed in Public Houses these days - under eighteen years old?
#11
I'm a smoker and short-term of course this is going to be really annoying. There's nothing like a cigarette and a pint after an excrutiating day at work to take your mind off things.

Of course there are the long-term benefits that I'll inevitably quit because of it and probably have an extra £100 to spend each month (on HUKDs:)). I am conscious of how annoying it is for non-smokers but I still think it's crazy to enforce such a widespread ban in one fail swoop.
#12
Smoker and agree with the ban! I don't smoke around other people anyway as I think it's unacceptable to do so.
#13
I cant wait!!!
I am actually really excited about this :)

I hate going places where people smoke, especially when they see my little boy AND STILL carry on smoking, its just the high of rudness, if they want to get several forms of cancer and enivitably die from it, dont force me too or my son!

Hate smoking, always have done.
#14
I still believe that part of this though should be getting rid of the lottery machines on the fag counters. Us smokers haven't got long left...why we have to wait for somones 10 lottery tickets to go through the machine?! :p

Smokers will be with me on this one! :thumbsup:

Instead of whinging, just quit like i keep telling you, then you wont need to be in that queue in the first place :thumbsup:

It's going to become really embarassing to smoke in public as I discovered last year whilst out in Los Angeles. They had little shelters outside rows of bars where you could huddle up and moan about not being able to smoke inside.

It immediately isolates you from everyone and gives you time to reflect on the stupidity of smoking. I didn't even start til I was 19 and at Uni living with 3 smokers, having resisted peer pressure from all my school/college friends for several years.


Edit:
Why don't the government implement a strategy using a small percentage of the excessive tax on cigarettes to include 5 nicotine patches with each packet? I know this would encourage me no end.

- I also think they should ban adverts with talking babies as compensation.
#17
I stopped smoking 7 months ago after smoking for 14 years. I don't mind those who still smoke smoking near me, it doesn't really bother me too much.

But I work in a pub and I cant wait for the law to come in. I go home stinking after my shift. I never realised that as a smoker I smelt so bad of smoke....you can't really smell it on yourself when you smoke.
#18
The Government should implement printing the word 'tosser' on each cigarrette.

I look forwards to the day they ban alcohol - ahh life in a cotton wool society :)
#22
Alcohol costs the government FAR more, were talking 100x more than smoking does. People are dying from it at a faster rate than people who smoke.

However, alcohol brings in FAR more revenue also, therefore, it continues and high streets are taken over by bars.

Alcohol is far worse than smoking. Try and find someone beating another person up because they had a few too many fags...

When was the last time also that you saw police riot vans patroling the streets looking out for people who have had too many fags?!
#23
On the flip side to that grdesign try dying from passive drinking!!!!!! LOL
#24
I could die from a drunk driver, or being beaten up though!!

Ok, I can't die from passive drinking, but seriously, think of the trouble that goes on from alcohol. Theres programmes on it and everything, every week!

It's why I dont get why pot is still illegal. Trouble would be next to nothing, we'd all be on our sofa's admiring the pretty artex pattern on our ceilings!
#25
I was assaulted twice in the space of three months thanks to drunks. I'd never broken anything yet had my nose broken and bent twice and had to wear a splint on it for a week both times. To make matters worse they smashed out my front teeth which have never even required a filling in over 24 years.

Not to mention the trauma of them playing cat and mouse afterwards, trying to escape from them whilst covered in blood :-(
#26
That's bad news MBeeching, I hope the police caught the guys that did it? and they got what was coming to them? Binge drinking is the cause of lots of violent crime, It is shocking.

I am glad i dont go out into town drinking any more!!
#27
They never caught the people involved in either incident. The first one was about 100 metres from my house but I had to flee in the opposite direction - probably a good idea anyway as otherwise they'd know where I lived. It wasn't caught on camera as petrol stations aren't allowed to film off the forecourt of their premises!! Another 3-5 metres was all that was needed, lol.

The second incident involved a chase literally right through the entire city centre. To this day I'm astounded that It wasn't caught on even one camera. I hate to say it but I think the police pretty much decided not to spend their resources on following it up. They also wouldn't take my pictures as evidence as they could be tampered with, I looked ghastly. Prob still have them lying around but they're far too gruesome for the forum.

Found out I was the 9th person to be assaulted that night. Apparently Lancaster has the highest assault ratio in the country relative to population size.
#28
Well I'm sorry to hear that!

It is shocking.
#29
I'm looking forward to the smoking ban as your clothes won't stink after a night out and the obvious health benefits.

On the down side, you can smell a fart a mile off in a non-smoking pub, so you have to be careful when letting one out.:oops:
