Are you looking forward to smoke -free England?

How will the smoking ban affect you? On 1 July smoking in enclosed public places will be banned in England. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland already have such a ban. Anti-smoking and medical organisations have long been campaigning for a full ban but smokers’ groups and some in the hospitality industry argue that this will restrict freedom of choice.

I know in every society or country where bills are passed in to law to stop people from smoking in the public places, is for the good of the people, there must be an anti-smoking group, medically smoking is dangerious to health and smokers are liable to die young. If the government can do that is to save life... PREVENTION IS BETTER COURE...

In my city of Santa Monica, California, there is already a strict smoking ban. You can't smoke within twenty feet of any business. You can not smoke at any bus stops or anywhere where people have to stand in line outside. The movies and Atms are all off limits for smoking. I am so glad that I do not smoke any more. But even if I did still smoke, I would not mind the bans on it, because it would help me to smoke less and it would force me to be more considerate of others. When I was younger, I would smoke at the bus stops and I had no idea how it affected others. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, it stinks and I don't like it one bit.
