Rolling Eyes This is hard work sometimes. It would take a pretty stubborn person to think that there were not benefits to quitting. I'm not that stubborn..... Am I? scratch

If it was principally to protect people from second hand smoke then why contemplate a blanket ban? I mean, some pubs have food & some don't you know which is which because you look at the signs. If I want to eat in a pub I find one with a sign that says "Food served here". If I don't want to eat then I don't need to look at the sign as they both serve drink. Why not have pubs with "Smoking allowed" or "No Smoking" signs outside? That way those who want to stay smoke free know which pubs to avoid & those who want to smoke also know which pub to avoid.

Are non smokers not able to read & make their own choices? I just think that a better way to protect people would be to give them the information they require & leave it to them............ A blanket ban is not respecting my choice.....

Is the eye roll because you meant 'am I sure that perhaps you underestimate mankind' then? because actually your 'are you sure' qualifies my final statement which was 'there are very good and desirable upsides to quitting'

..anyway, why is 'contemplating a blanket ban' at odds with protection from secondary fumes? there is no inconsistency! - ban it altogether because I can still smell it, all over the flippin place!
Now there is no need to contemplate which establishment to eat in, drink in, work in, take the kids in, the pregnant in etc etc....

A double act indeed. Laughing

The are you sure was for "These other drugs you mention are not as pervasive NR. More a personal,intermitant usage, not generally inflicted around the place."

I understand that you want it banned altogether, but you've probably never been to my local pub & probably never will go there so the smell, fumes & anything like that from there wouldn't bother you would it? As I said, I'm all for banning smoking in places where food is served, clothes shops, train stations, sheltered bus stops etc etc, but I don't see any reason why some pubs (Not all) shouldn't be "smoking pubs". Let them apply for a licence & pay for it, just like they have to do with alcohol. That way everybody is happy. I don't see how that could affect you if you don't go to those pubs anyway.

The funny thing is that neither of you are wrong here but neither of you will let it go either, makes me wonder where it will end Very Happy

No one wants to give up THEIR drug of choice though, so it wont end till one or the other gets completely banned. And I cant see that happening in our lifetime.

My drug of choice:

Nicotine
Alcohol
Caffiene
Cannabis

3 legal, one not, yet I can get my hands on the not legal one 24 hours a day with a moments notice & I can have it delivered to my door. Making things illegal doesn't make people stop using them. Just means that we end up shelling out for them in hospitals or via the police without getting any of the revenue..........

Not excuses, just being real. No person will have the will power to quit anything unless it's something they want to give up. No point in doing it for anyone else other than yourself, no point in doing it unless it's something you want to do, otherwise failure is almost certain........ I don't like to fail at anything I do Peck

And yeah, I'm like a big kid. Tell me not to do something & it's exactly what I'll want to do lol! "Rebel without a Clue" as my mother says NR Laughing

Not smoking on non smoking day, I've cut down to about 2 or 3 a day anyway as I don't really have time to keep going outside. so to go a day without aint so bad, I'll have one when I finish work tonight cause that'll be after midnight but in the meantime I'm having great fun reminding the smokers that it's no smoking day!! Laughing
