This is a Re-run
WHAT happened to the slogan 'Kiss a non smoker and taste the difference'?
Did the tobacco companies buy the copyright and ban its publication? if so what about having a new slogan! But remember the kids will have to see it too.
My partner and I are non smokers and only experience this dreadful problem at alcohol pumped up parties and other social gatherings.
What have you experienced when kissing a tobacco smoker? be careful now.
What are your thoughts on tobacco usage in general? like ban Smokes, ration them or tax them out of reach of people, or should we wear a non smokers badge which states,
"Blow that smoke in my face and you will die you bastard"
Remember you dopey smokers, It will reduce your shagging days considerably and each smoke an hour of your life.
Maybe smokers should be fitted with smoke stacks!!
ADD: My two local social clubs which are in a medium size category, segregate smoking areas, however, the gaming areas are all smoking areas, which in my opinion is totally wrong.
I try when possible to occupy an area in the clubs well away from the smokers but my clothing stinks of tobacco smoke when I arrive home.
If we non smokers survive another year we will see ALL smoking banned in pubs and clubs, then a rise in fees and possibly a few establishments going to the wall.

Our community was a flagship for banning smoking in public places. I have been a non-smoker for about 25 years. While I appreciated non-smoking areas in restaurants prior to this, I thought it would be terrible for smokers not to be able to enjoy a smoke with a drink in the pub. However, when it finally came thru, it was very nice to go out and not stink of smoke or have irritated eyes or throat. There were a couple of dives that went under because the little business they drew decided to take it home. Our favourite pub however had a 40% increase in food sales. Without the smoke, appetites were bigger, when food was delivered to another table, you could smell it and wanted some. Pubs were still packed. Restaurants - no prob. Now, I find it disgusting to enter a restaurant or coffee shop with smokers. I wouldn't buy a donut from one of these places ever. The part I don't like about it is seeing grown-ups standing outside the doors of a bar smoking, littering the sidewalk with butts. Some bars have covered, heated patios for smokers which hides them away from the public eye. These do well.
What I don't understand is that with all the knowledge of how bad smoking is, how come the kids get started on it? What makes it cool? When I started, 75% of people smoked. I guess we knew it was bad then too but the majority did it anyway. Now that's not the case at all.

Blech - I hate smoke and I refuse to be with someone who smokes. I have never been a smoker, though, but have had to live with people who do. Probably why I have a low tolerance for it.
