… im a smoker, when i heard of the ban i was like grrr ya cant be doin that and evrybody was givin out but when it came in it was grand cos like cal said nearly all the pubs put up decent beer gardens with heaters and shelters and some of them are just the same as being inside.

… I don't like the idea of blanket bans -- I think individual companies should get the choice. Be a smoking establishment or not, and then people should choose which places they like.
None of this stupid 'smoking section' crap, though, like lots of places in the US try to get away with.
There are some states in the US that already have blanket bans on smoking, such as in California. It doesn't keep nonsmokers from complaining, though. Now they complain about smokers smoking outside the establishments.
