In the UK we have a complete ban on smoking in public areas, such as inside pubs, clubs, restraurants. I am interest to know, however, if anyone would be interested in seeing this ban developed further - so it is illegal to smoke outside. The reason I ask is that I absolutely despise smoking. I hate everything about it: the smell, the smell it leaves on your clothes, and the damage that it can potentially cause. Every weekday I commute to University via the train. Smoking is illegal in the train-station, but when you walk outside you are guaranteed to be engulfed in a big cloud of smoke, caused by about 6 to 8 people smoking. Also, on my short walk to University from the train-station, I am guaranteed to be walking behind at least one person smoking in front of me, and the wind blowing it right towards my face. Then finally, I have to climb a fairly steep hill to get to one of my Uni buildings - and again 2-3 people stand at the doors smoking, so when you get to the top of the hill, out of breath and breathing deeply, you get smoke straight into your lungs. I try to avoid it as much as possible, but it isn't always possible. I hate it! I do not see why I should have to breath other peoples smoke at all. It is their choice to smoke, not mine. I think smoking should be banned whilst driving (using your phone is illegal - why not smoking?) I think smoking should only be legal on your own property. What do you think? Discuss.
