    Great, but we still have to get through the crowds of smokers near the doors unless they keep them away from the doorways. :thumbsup2

    Yes, I am pleased about this too. I volunteer at our local theatre and often help out behind the bar which is no smoking, but a few people forget and blow their smoke in my face anyway (saying that a lot of smokers are very respectful and do put their cigarette out before approaching the bar). So having the whole building non smoking will be great.

    Just means that DD and I will be spending an awful lot of time sitting on our own whilst DH nips out for a smoke as he virtually chain smokes, or falls asleep. :sad2:

    Oh well.

    Get some stickers from your local hospice and make a donation and if smokers get in your way, sticker them!!

    I think you'll find that the only hospitals which are exempt are psychiatric hospitals - certainly all the hospitals in our area are already smoke-free. In fact many now don't allow people to smoke anywhere in the hospital grounds!

    We have been smoke free for a few years now here in Ireland
    It is the best thing ever that happened

    this is from a pub owner and an exsmoker

    gave up nearly 11 years ago now
    and spent the money going to Disney instead

    otherwises all our holidays would have gone up in smoke :lmao:

    yep great news this, nothing worse than being a non-smoker in a smoke filled pub.
    The smell on your clothes the next day is just horrid.

    As jns said we are smoke free here in Ireland and it is the best thing. I can take the kids into town on a Saturday and we can sit in a coffee shop without having someone blow smoke into their faces. :smokin:
