    i smoked for a little while, but outside, then realsed it was pointless, not cool and it was bad for myself, gave up. if you see a reason to give up it isnt hard. one year with no smoking on the 20th feb!!! none of my family smoke, my uncle did but gave up, my bfs family dont smoke and ma gran died of lung cancer for smoking, surely that tells u something- IT AINT GOOD FOR YA! and no, it isnt a free world cos u are inflicting your 'right' to smoke on others, making them passive smokers.

    Do you think your employer has a responsibilty, under Health and Safety at work, to protect you from the effects of passive smoking (presuming you, yourself, don't smoke)?

    I believe this is one of the fundamental reasons that the banning of smoking in bars/restaurants in Ireland was legislated for. There is always the risk of litigation against the employer by the employee.

    My mum used to, then she gave it up last year...to become a spiritual person and a health food addict. Yoga every morning, no alcholol, looking after the cholesteral level etc, oh how frustrating.
    better than second hand smoke.....

    If your grandad lived with your grandma then he smoked too - secondhand smoke. Smoking causes many other cancers apart from lung cancer like bowel, throat, stomach cancers etc. As the smoke is carried through the blood stream its carcinogens are carried to all areas of the body, hence the potential of any type of cancer.
