hm also... if smoking is banned... a lot of clubs/bars will definitely lose customers or on the extreme maybe go out of business...

[this is a pretty weak argument though, eh]

I'm all for smoking bans, when ppl complain about it I just say its the nicotine talking, ppl always say what about the smokers rights but what about the ppl who dared to say no, second hand smoke is worse, so we chose to mind our health and still get royally screwed...

I mean why would you want to inhale cyinde(sp) anyway?

In the end there is no real benift from smoking regardless of what ppl say, it cause more trouble in the end then its worth

if smokers want to smoke do it in the privacy of your own home, car, they should put smoking booths up so smokers can stand in their own filthy air and enjoy it

id be any kind of sympathetic if so many smokers werent so rude, blowing smoke in ppls faces, throwing their cig buds anywhere...going to concerts where there is no ventalation and lighting up disregarding anyone with health problems...

....they have the right to smoke but the ppl who don't smoke have the right to not be subjected to it

I'm also all for smoking bans. There is just no reason anyone should be a smoker. I can understand that tobacco was a big part of this nations development. But now all it does is kill people and should be illegal. I also think it is much different from McDonald's and Burger King because if I want to go on a diet, there is no physical addiction driving me to eat more fast food.

It's also a serious strain on the health care system when we have to deal with so many cases of cancer. I'm loving the new laws in place around Dallas. One city is gonna make it so the ONLY place you can smoke is in your house, you can't even smoke outside or in any business, or building. Those kind of laws along with higher taxes will make everyone pull their heads out of their asses and quit smoking.

i don't give a damn, really. Life's for having fun. If one's find it fun to smoke then he should do it. Regarding the health problems later, of course.

I smoke... but I do support the ban on smoking in public places... I mean it pisses people off, there are babies around etc... they should just designate smoking areas in the mall not close down my favorite coffee shop for not having a smoking area...

it's been years but i'm still pissed off about it...

It's surprisingly difficult to stop smoking, you don't "just quit" - there need to be services in place to keep all the smokers who subsequently quit from going back to smoking.

Well, i am a smoker and about the only places i can really agree on for a ban is resteraunts. hell, even i don't like someone smoking near me while i am eating.

i try to be a bit respectfull to others about it and i will absolutely not smoke around children. but this is just me. as for a bar ban - that is just bloody stupid.

I'm glad they put up public bans because sometimes some smokers light up while they're walking... ugh... it really hurts when they bump into you and you get burned by their cigarette... happened to me and my friends a couple times...

^ Some people can be inconsiderate. But when I tell them to "blow up", they go ahead and try to avoid belching smoke in my direction.
