A few months ago I met a couple while on holiday, they had never smoked in their lives but the two of them started smoking in their early fifties weird!
Maybe it was a suicide pact ?
So he likes to be able to hold something stiff in his hand, and she wants something stiff in her mouth?
I think they may be compensating for something.
....or maybe your imagniation is running wild...they are innocent toys after all
1 Pubs wewre closing down rapidly BEFORE the ban
2 PubCo's SHOULD have introduced air mangaement sytems AND used them. I got fed up goinf to 2 of my local boozers and having to ask for the fans tro be switched on cos the place stank . The pubCo's are co,mpl;etelky at fault, thet could have avoided the ban.
3 I don't want to be in a pub full of scruffy folk in garfdening clothes. Equally, I don't want to go home stinking!
4 Not a shred of evidence re cancer & smoking? Yea if you say so
And FINALLY, my local pub has never been busier. Some of the smokers still whinge about having to go to the shelter, but they are still there. If the ban was reversed, I would definitely not frequent pubs any more, and I probably (sadly) spend more in the pub than most of the smokers! On the other hand, another local pub is dead - but that is because the Landlady is a loser, and doesn't have a clue. When they finally go under, they will no doubt blame the smoking ban.
Sorry xbg. I didn't see the pubs suddenly becoming full when the non smokers decided to start going to pubs when the ban was introduced. I have no doubt the smoking ban has contributed to the downfall of pubs, but, the government and the breweries too have contributed massively to the closure of many locals.
Very possibly some pubs have closed as a result of the smoking ban. So be it. But there will always be enough pubs to meet demand - simple as that.
Smoking will never, ever be allowed again in public places. Ever. And that is one small step forward in the civility of this world.
Some non smokers complained that when they put their clothes back on in the morning, after a night in the pub that they stank of smoke. Why don't these people take a shower and put on fresh clothes, intsead of stinking the pub out with their B.O.
Let's repeat again, just where it is still actually allowed indoors.
Mr. HandyAndy - Really
Hopefully smoking will be banned in the streets soon. It has started in the USA and where they lead we usually follow....Iraq, Afghanistan, Bankers, debt, poor TV.....
