Ok ok, I know that I'm probably going to be flamed here, anyway, here goes. As the saying goes, " Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it!" Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm not quite a rabid anti-smoker, but not far short! I was certainly one of the ones calling for a smoking ban and I absolutley supported one and was over the moon when it was announced and overjoyed when it finally came in. Now then, perhaps my views have changed slightly over the last few months. When smoking was allowed in buildings, I knew where not to go. If I didn't want to smell of smoke I didn't go...end of. The problem now, is that I simply cannot avoid the smoke any more. All I have to do is walk down the high street and I have smoke from nearly every doorway blown over me as I walk along. Heaven forbid that I should actually want to enter a drinking establishment. Gaggles of smokers all puffing out their foul exhaust fumes all over me as I try to get through them to the door. Not a pleasant experience. So now, to my mind, it begs the question, (and this is I suspect where I start to get a bit controversial) was I wrong in the first place to seek and support a ban? Or were we on the right track and the ban simply hasn't gone far enough? Is it time for us non-smokers to up the anti again and start a new campaign? Should we now be looking at either banning smoking in all public places? Or perhaps erecting the occasional shelter perhaps 15 meters or so, away from any building and forcing the nicotine addicts into those for their fix so that us non-smokers can avoid them altogether?
