With new laws to be passed in England following Scotland and Northern Ireland as a result of the medical affects of passive smoking ie cancer, asthma etc. What are your views on this and what is the science to proove this? Do you agree? I have to say that I am a mild smoker myself and only smoke if I am out at the weekend. On average I only smoke about 1-2 cigarettes a day. I enjoy a smoke when I go out so I'm interested in pubs clubs banning it. I'm fairly uneducated in the science about this so I'm interested to hear from people rather than searching. Lets discuss.

I never tought my goverment would be interested in the way i die.

They never do.

So why they seem to care all of a sudden about my smoking ?

Our goverments trow bunker buster bombs around the world and they want to stop me smoking.

I seriously wonder why?

Did they found positive nicotine side effects that i cant have any more ????

They banned smoking here in Colorado, only casinoes and cigar shops are exempt, where our casinoes have bars built into most of them... The rule even goes as far as this, ever seen a restraunt like Hooters or a Black eyed pee where they have a patio that can be covered up durring the winter with a roll-over tarp so that people can still eat? Durring the summer, when the tarp is off, it's still illigal to go out on that patio to have a smoke. You have to go out the main entrance and be at least 15 feet away from the door if you want to smoke.
I've lived with smokers all my life, and am a smoker my self (about to quit and am happy about it), but even being around people that smoke, you can smell it, almost taste it, and it has ill effects on your health. However, as far as I'm concerned, if you're gonna go to a bar, you should expect to be around smokers. But not here anymore, smokers have to go outside despite weather conditions. The local bar I go to every now and then was nice enough to set up chairs outside the front door where people can go to smoke.
To tell you the truth, I use to be all for smokers, but now'a'days I can see the other side of the fence and why some people who can afford to eat at Red Lobster every other night, would want to kick the smokers out. But insted the law has hit every bar around the state, even biker bars like the one I go to. Everyone I've met there was a smoker, but they continue to go because of the good company.
I'm really on the fence on this issue. Can't think of anything else to say. Man it's late.

Yeah, they banned/restricted smoking in pubs & clubs in Australia.
A few months ago they were talking about restricting it in public areas. That proposition hasn't happened yet though.

The way I see it, I will only stop smoking in public when the big companies stop pumping their waste into the air.
I garentee that they daily produce more pollution and 'second hand smoke' than all the smokers in Australia.

So again

Why does our goverment seem to be interested in our health all of a sudden.
They dont seem so concerned on many other points.

Did they found possitive side effect to the use of nicotine that they dont like us to have.

I mean there are things tha are much worse to our health and they dont give a damn about them.
Example: depleted uranium dust blowing around over the earth from their bombing actions.
Passively breathing that dust is a little more harmfull to your health.

What about the use of mercury in vaccinations

I just dont get it that all of a sudden all over the world they come to the same findings that smoking has to go from puplic places.
Is this staged.
It stinks that this is happening everywhere at the same time.

Second hand smoke is dangerous and has been linked to a variety of maladies including cancer. However, it is a very hard habit to quit and smokers should not be treated as if they are lepers. There should be designated indoor smoking areas in every bar and club. Smokers and non-smokers both have rights and I feel as a non-smoker I should respect the rights of smokers.
