I'm not for a complete ban of smoking in bars. The best solution would be a law obliging bar owners to make separate smoker and non-smoker areas.

What I'm against is smoking in totally public areas, like bus stops, corridors in the offices etc. Really, I've been a few times in situations, when I was waiting for a bus - and a person next to me started smoking. It shouldn't be allowed.

... no, it isn't \:\-\)

Meh. The exhaust from the bus is worse for you than the cigarette smoke.

The funny thing is, even when I wasn't a smoker, I don't recall ever becoming sick from someone else's cigarette. Most of my relatives smoke; most of my friends have been smokers; I was the last person in my circle to start the habit.

And I had asthma before I started smoking. That's right, since I started smoking, I haven't had a single asmtha attack--25 years now. No causal relationship, I'm sure, but it hasn't hurt me none. I still play a mean saxophone, too.
