    Smoking and drinking go together like peanut butter and jelly. I occasionally smoke a cigar. A good one, like an Arturo Fuente or a Cuban. To avoid stinking up my own house, I'll usually go to a bar to smoke the cigar. In fact, when I'm in the mood for a cigar is about the only time I go to a bar. My town just banned smoking in all public places, so these bars have just lost my business.

    Lousy safety Nazi's!

    Whenever I read about people wanting to ban things, I keep wondering .....what if we ban anything and everything that some people want banned, or don't like? If that happened, what would we be allowed to do?

    Too much money in tobacco for it to be banned. Smoking had been banned indoors in New York a few years ago but these days some people are violating the law and restaurant owners are sometimes looking the other way.

    Hi Truth seeker,

    Thank yoj for starting this thread, aplogies for answering you initial post so late.

    i Reckon the selling of tobacco shoudl be made illegal if not severly cut down to very select few shops.

    I am a smoker, and i think i tis disgusting and the way the governement use it, is hypocrcy beyond limits.

    I think it is inherently appauling that i can buy Cigarettes from more places on my way to work than i can paracetomal.

    I want to sue the government for human rights abuses as whenever i try to stop i cant cos their are too many palces i can buy cigarettes from?

    the governement should putits money where is mouth is and ban them

    and with that i agree with you 100%

    ~~~~~~~~~~
    take it ez

    Yeah, sure, ...and anything and everything that anyone doesn't like or want. I mean, let's ban transfat oils, as well as any and all meat products ...'cause vegatarians don't like meat, or the animal rights activists don't like us killing and eating animals. And ban coffee 'cause some people don't like coffee and think that it causes health problems. Let's ban swim suits that don't cover the entire skin of the body, 'cause some people think that's nasty and perverted. Let's ban computers 'cause people play silly war and violence games on them. .....

    Yeah, including aspirin. Pain is good for the body, it helps to heal the sickness or injury.

    True....

    Absolutely.

    I suppose they are focused on protecting passengers. But, yeah... I know...


    As I said, I'm not a strong supporter of smoking in public. But a man's home is his castle.So don't let people smoke in public, except in places set aside for communities of smokers.

    This is a non-smoking apartment building. And his smoke was affecting me and my family.


    Fair enough.

    That's good. But what about your comments of young people being irresponsible? Were you just generalizing or... what?

    I most certainly don't trust the government.

    EXACTLY. Unfortunately, a lot of old people use their age as an excuse to abuse or criticize young people. They say they are "wise" becasue they are old, basically. Like a quasi-fanatic catholic I once lived with...

    What else should people not be allowed to do? Dude, you should have gotten an education and a better job before you started pumping out babies---or your wife to start pumping out babies, so you could live and raise children on your own terms, and wouldn't have to deal with people "blowing toxic fumes" in your children's faces. It's your fault. At least take some responsibility.

    I'm very educated, I support myself and I have no babies, I have an apartment in a quiet nonsmoking neighborhood. That did not stop the man standing next to me at the bus stop from blowing a mouth full of cigarette smoke in my face. If he was standing with a glass of alcohol or smoking weed (which would mostly affect him) I could have held him liable, but strangely enough, cigarette smoking is a state sanctioned drug industry, so I could only hold my breath and move away.
