    To be honest, I smoke myself, but I hate it when other people smoke when I'm still eating. ButI also admit that there's nothing like a nice cigarette after a good meal. Maybe restaurants should just install some sort of smoking room.

    I gather that you all are not Americans.

    Smokers have been treated as pariahs over here for years now.

    Some cities ( Boulder ) have banned smoking in public anywhere within the city limits. They recently denied a liquor license to a cigar bar because they had no "non-smoking area".

    The irony completely escaped them.

    Have to say, our government (Queensland, Australia) banned smoking in any pubs/clubs during meal times about 18 months ago.... the people were not happy, and neither were the staff. We have to tell all customers not to smoke and if we don't we can get a $1500 fine.. and the hotel can get a fine for that amount too while the smoker gets a $300 fine..... go figure

    smoking in public is disgusting and should be banned everywhere.

    i have nothing against those who smoke in their own houses, however, smoking in public is something which should not be tolerated

    passive smoking is a proven killer. if smokers want to kill themselves, go ahead, but they should not be allowed to kill others

    There aren&#39;t many places in Australia you can smoke nowdays... it has been banned from all shopping malls and nearly every office building. I have no problems either way... smoke or don&#39;t... inside or out... but I do object to receiving a fine 5 times the amount of the smoker. It&#39;s not always easy to tell someone who has been drinking they cannot smoke in that area of a local pub while meals are being served, alcohol and smokes go hand in hand and most non-smokers accept smokers in pubs.

    yeah, sumplaces it should be banned if the premisies ar enot big enought to provide no smokin areas.

    but smoking should not be banned in a pub or shopping centre, it isn&#39;t where i live, most shpping centres provide ash trays so at leat the butts can go in a tray.

    but to bann in a pub is daft, it is just what happens in a pub. men go there for a couple of pints n talk about how shit their football team as been doin.

    the offices i have worked in only bann smokin between 9-5, after 5 everyone just spaks up, if you dont like it, you can go home cos it after 5.
