Smoking ban in England!

Recommended Posts

Smoking is one of the main causes of cardiovascular disease, one of the biggest killers in the UK. Smoking is as bad as they say it is. The research is there to back this statement!

A number of smokers are arrogant when it comes to others safety, as they feel it is there right to smoke anywhere they want. I have seen countless people smnoking in no smoking areas, which really pisses me and many others off.

So was pointing out that I hadn't said it since I was a kid.

Smoking in an area designated as non smoking is rude, I agree. But if we are herded into a back corner (where the smoking sections generally are) and treated as a lesser species anyway, why not let us sit in our little spot and do what we are told we can do there? Not all smokers are arrogant. Most of them I know or have seen out in public bend over backwards, so to speak, to try to make life easier for non smokers.

You must have been peeping last night, Moo !!

I would NEVER smoke in an area designated as a non-smoking area !

However, I get really p1ssed off with people telling me how to live my life.

On a point of interest, me and 'Er Indoors popped into our favourite local yesterday afternoon for a pint or three.

On entry, eight people present in the bar. ALL smoking.

The land-lady said if she was forced to enforce a no-smoking rule, she would be out of business in weeks !

Q.E.D.

Nope, not peeping. I just know that is the way it goes sometimes. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Why would anyone want to start drinking in the first place? Being falling down drunk and acting stupid but not remembering it the next day is stupid.

 

Why do men want to pass wind as a hobby when they are together? It is a nasty habit.

 

Why does anyone want to bite their fingernails? It is a nasty habit.

 

Why does anyone want to start any habit they have?

Most of these habits don't kill people indirectly! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />

Drinking can cause cirrhosis of the liver, among many other health problems that could either kill you or damage your body.

*Lights up and ponders that statement* When someone has a drinking problem and doesn't take care of his or her family properly, it can cause all sorts of health problems for the people, especially children, in the family. If meals aren't cooked, the house is left filthy, etc, it can cause health problems. So yes, drinking can cause health problems in other people who don't drink.

If we were all really honest, we'd say we wanted smoking banned cos it upsets smokers.

 

That's a valid enough reason in my selfish book... <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Aaahh.. someone from the 'other side' fesses up! While everyone wants to sit and down smokers because they are sure we smoke for the sole purpose of annoying non smokers, no one wanted to fess up they do things to get at smokers. I seriously doubt people take up the habit for the pure joy of annoying non smokers by sitting in the smoking section of any building, or going outside to smoke, thus being OUT of the sight and air of nonsmokers.

Well there you go, if it was a French woman, IQ stands for Ignorance Quotiant!

You had better have meant that because of the French part, not the female part. You don't live so far away I can't drive there and tell you about it! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
