in reply to Do you smoke tobacco?

My wife is asthmatic. I've spent a lot of years outdoors smoking because of it. However, it should be noted that the smoking nazis are missing the point. While taking all their anger out on tobacco, and banning where it can be burnt; they really need to look after indoor air quality. Poor quality air can be created by a LOT of things besides tobacco, and they are usually NOT banned, and sets off my wife's asthma just as quickly as a puff of tobacco smoke. As for the bans forcing us smokers outside, well, it is generally still considered a legal activity, and there should be places where it is accepted. If a property owner of an establishment wants to have his pub smoke free, it should be on the door. ALSO, if we wants to allow it, that should be on the door as well. There are NO monopolies or requirements for the public to go to pubs, bars, etc. There generally are on government buildings, workplaces, etc. where a ban is reasonable. There just needs to be a better place for the smokers to go.

    A bar is also a workplace.

      Wile it is true that a bar is also a workplace, it is not required of bar employees to work there. They could just as easily get a job waiting tables/bartending/cooking, whatever, at a resturant where smoking is not allowed. It's not like you didnt get the job there if the first place. People know if a place is going to allow smoking before they get the job. If an establishment is a dedicated bar, and even mabye if its not. Smoking should be allowed.

      The air force is also a work place and I don't like killing but would love a job tazzing around in fast jet planes. I expect them to turn pacifist to respect my rights any time now.
