Australia has a similar ban. I've been very thankful for it, except when all pubs go smoke free. When I go Drinking, I want the full experience of getting sloshed in a seedy, smokey dive.

in thread Do you smoke tobacco?
Pubs in Australia have a choice of smoking/smokefree. I do feel sorry for the poor smokers, harried from their favourite sunless den of iniquity by crusaders who don't seem to realise the irony of preventing smoking in pubs for the patrons health
OTOH I also believe the patrons should be allowed to whip out their bongs in a pub, so I guess I'd count as being a little out there.
I love the smoke free restaurants though. Definately a improvement in quality of life.
