My poll is all about if we should ban smoking forever or just keep it as it is (just banned in pubs)

I say yes, but what do you think


YES 1%
NO  0%

if you ban something, then you just push it underground, where the criminals get involved!

I've never been a smoker, but i don't think there should be a total ban either. There should be some form of segregation or smoking area for those who wish/need to smoke. (which happens in most places now anyway)

Can you imagine 4million nicotine craving people roaming the streets of Britain. It would be a total nightmare.



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

I do agree with that, but the thing that freaks me out is that young kids at about my age are smoking.......now theres something wrong there

If they ban smoking, I would like them to also ban

Mobiles on buses (especially in Liverpool where everyone thinks they're Dom Jolly)

Children under 18 being outside after 8pm.

Any kind of dangerous dog dragging some hooded excuse for a kid behind them clinging for dear life to a leash.

White Lightning and cheap kiddy booze. who likes cranberry flavoured lager anyway, even at 15p a litre?

Blokes driving girls cars (Corsa, etc) with spoilers, blue lights and shades that Stevie Wonder would feel embarassed to wear while listening to teenage rap at 800db. Laughable.

Any kind of official who is an 'expert' at everything after completing a 2 day course in his chosen field and thinks they know more than you when quite obviously they don't. They waste more of taxpayers money than any social problem or the NHS. I believe the PC term is 'red tape'.

Any ringtone by Eminem.

Meterazzi from all football grounds worldwide.

On a serious note, why ban smoking and still allow dangerous amounts of emmisions from industry, cars etc when these are a far more direct cause of the same 'related' illnesses. Again, target the 'easy' prey and pass the buck. We British are good at that.

I smoke but wouldn't impose it on anyone, I won't smoke anywhere I shouldn't, I don't even smoke in the car if we give someone a lift.
But I for one would definitely flout any No Smoking law simply because its another case of Big Brother sneaking in through the back door disgued in a 'PC' cloak. Its pathetic denying the ordinary someone a 'right' to choose (VERY un-PC in fact) when 'exclusive' clubs would be exempt from these laws. And where do these Lawmakers go for a drink? George and Dragon? I don't think so.....

Next they'll want to ban free speech in case you upset the minority, or the majority, or both.
Who goes? You decide!

Keep that thaught about no smoking when your older  
I smoke and it is very difficult to stop  
About you might drink
If you want to drink, DON"T DRINK TO MUCH
Smoke and drink alcohol to much is NOT GOOD FOR YOU
Please take my advice, i mend it well

I don't mind mobiles so much, just the Dom Jolly impersonations.....

And those Bluetooth headset idiots are just so laughable to see its hard not to feel sorry for the daft sods.

Sorry for hijacking the thread somewhat Stephanie, but its 1% NO from me.....
