We actually have laws here in the US that say you can´t smoke within 50 feet of a public entrance. I like it. I hope we can have something like that. So many places have a designated area on the side of a building where smoking is allowed.  Believe me, if you have asthma, walking thru a cloud of smoke before getting into a building can be a bit of a challenge, so I really appreciate these laws.  However, I do think that smokers should have a place where they can smoke freely without worrying about getting in trouble or putting someone into a full blown asthma attack.

 The problem with smoking is the smoke doesn´t stay in one place, it disperses....I do think people are a little over sensitive about it though, but smokers could and should be more thoughtful about where and how they smoke.  It seems all those years of being subjected to smokers has taken it´s toll, not the nonsmokers are extracting revenge. 

 

However, I notice now that I´m not smoking, even though the smokers are outside....and 20 feet from the door....it still smells up the rotunda of my office.  Also, when I take my walks around the building, walking through a cloud of smoke is not particularly pleasant.  People who smoke do not smell nice.

 

I miss the days of carefree smoking, but those days are gone. If they could make all the pubs in Ireland smoke free, what is next?  It´s just so hard to quite, but it´s worth it.  I hope I stopped before too much damage was done.

As far as I know, one out of every 20 persons has a predisposition to developing lung cancer. These people need not become smokers; even being exposed to the faint smell of tobacco over prolonged periods  significantly increases the risk for them.

The Amerindians had a very different method of tobacco use.

In the infameous Crimean War

 

- The Brits sacrificed the brave Light Brigade, in a show of utter incompetence.

- Florence Nightingale was tending the wounded.

- The Turks rolled out cigarettes with left over tobacco using old newspapers (first paper rolled cigarettes, as we know today), when cigar leaf rolling tobacco ran out.

- The French imitated the Turks, but were never as successful.

I hate these stupid laws. Why not have a non-smoking AND a smoking section? As a smoker I do not mind you borrow my smoke... lol

 

BTW It can be worse: here in Japan in some cities, like Kobe and Nara (where I`m now), you can`t even smoke on the streets! In Kobe they`ll fine you with 1000 yen (8 euro) when you do that. Not that I would be bothered with a fine of a low amount like that but the hassle with a police officer who does not speak English.... McD. and thelike earned a lot of money from me, everytime I wanted to smoke I headed for these places - with the compulsory drink.....

 this is how it is in Romania.there are bars which are only for smokers or only for non-smokers, and some of them have two parts with no connection. this is the law. Also, on the street, in very crowded places you can´t smoke just in some areas where are located some green pillars in the far site if the zone.and i can tell that nobody complains.i think it´s ok like that..everyone is happy.

 I thought Fenerbahçe fans were an endangered species these days. They seem to have been very quiet of late.Unsure

Smoking should be recommended strongly; in fact, cigarettes should be freely distributed.

 

Let´s get everyone smoking, before people start falling off the earth...It is getting too crowded here..Alcoholics

Neat site....it appears we need to even out the birth and death rates, which it looks like some are doing their best to do....
