I didn't read the whole treat, but I want to tell you my opinion, too, even it has already appeared.

I'm a smoker myself, but I appreciate a ban in restaurants, because I think it's rude to smoke while other people are eating, especially if they don't smoke.
In Bars there should be a ban, too, but that is not so important for me.

I think they should ban smoking only in restaurants because, every time I go somewhere with my friends, lets say Hooters, my mom always thinks I've been smoking.

But "Smoke'N'Booze" is like the ultimate stereotype of a bar

Since I travel a lot on business, I have found that if I don't check into a motel early, all the non-smoking rooms are taken and all the smoking rooms are empty. I have gotten stuck with the stench of a smoking room too often so now I call around until I find a non-smoking hotel or motel. I wonder how the managers would like it if I, say, decided to fry up a can of sardines or use the corner for a urinal?

Sur strömming would be a good thing to put in the corner!

NOTE:

I am not a smoker...


but, I do think people should have the right to smoke, especially in bars...people go there to unwind, relax, and have a good time...so why take that right away??

Resturants, well hell thats why we have smoking and non-smoking sections...it dosent bother me, if people wanna roast their lungs thats their damn business...I figure my lungs are probably roasted from all this ****en pollution anyway....to sum it up...people have the right to do what they wish with their bodies, and feed their habits...lol...

Since smoking has been banned in pubs in the UK, hundreds of pubs have had to close down. The pubs should be given the choice of allowing smoking or not or at least have a area of the pub sectioned off for smokers.

Lets see: If I am sentenced to a prison haul, I am also (but not said so) sentenced to starve for a smoke? Let me f*** up the *** for getting one?

Sorry, from a (recent) non-smoker, cannot follow on that one, I think if a SC has rights over states laws (do not know for US, in Eurpe it is like that) it would be a case for it (or change the laws: Every sentence includes you have to become a non-smoker, might have a better effect than life sentence or death penalty...)

Yeah.

We (ex) smokers die 20 years earlier statistically, not developing stuff like old-age cancer (long term treatment) senility, alzheimer or renal failures (which, IIRC, are the 4 most costing illnesses). Include the alcoholics liver replacement and you are up to 60% of the health care cost (the nexxt biggy is artificial hips which we won´t need). We save you non-smokers by dying when its time, usually by a fast lung cancer or heart attack.
