My stand on smoking bans

How will smoking bans work? 'I have the right to breathe' Smoking bans are 'discrimination' Smokers, make the right choice Smoking bans 'ridiculousness in the extreme' How I kicked the smoking habit Smoking bans won't stop addicts Smoking ban a 'petty issue' Give up smoking, 'while you can' Smoking 'adversely affects all'

In our smoking bans Stuff Nation assignment, our readers give their views on proposed smokimg bans in public areas. Jade Benfell supports the bans, but wonders who they'll be implimented.

As a non-smoker, I support the idea of banning smoking in public areas. I like the idea of walking down the main street of town without the smell of cigarette smoke wafting up my nasal passages.

But where will smokers go at 'smoko' time? If they work in a public area they can't just nip out the back or front door, t'll be illegal. They'd most likely have to sit in their car, or drive all the way home.

If there's to be a smoking ban perhaps there should be allocated smoking areas?

Honestly I'm not sure how this will work out. But it's not my job to think of these things, I don't get paid big bucks like the politicians.

In short. I like the idea but I'm not sure how it will work.
