    If you think being a tobacco smoker is hard you should try smoking pot; less harmful, less addictive, and more medicinal, yet persecuted 10x more.

    why does everyone assume that those who smoke are constantly puffing into someones face (edit: i realized you were quoting someone who wants smoking back in pubs so i guess my reply to you is kind of irrelevent but none the less it can apply to those who keep going on about second hand smoke)? for some (e.g. me) most of the smoking is done at home in the garden/outside the house (i hate smoking inside and never do even if im alone) e.g. after waking up, before bed, after meal etc.

    im not suggesting they are puffing it into peoples faces, but the smoke does end up filling a room... therefore people in that room will be breathing it in. if it wasnt a problem it wouldnt have been banned.

    i get your point but even smoking outside creates second hand smoke that others that walk past have to breathe in (in the case of smoking outside a pub or restaurant or outside the workplace).

    no, smoking = stupid you should be taxed at a higher rate as you are more likely to need the NHS with smoking related complaints
    Thing is, cigarette taxes are massive and the government makes a lot of money out of it - a lot of money which goes into the NHS. Smokers already contribute (indirectly) far more to the NHS per year than any other group.

    It is not hard to see why smoking has been banned in pubs. It creates a smoke filled environment, and surely deprives non-smokers of clean air to breathe.

    I am a smoker, but as soon as ive finished a cig I want to go and sit in a clean environment where I dont have to constantly wash my clothes after going to. Plus it makes smokers smoker less, which is a good thing.

    It would be nice if more smokers could understand that they are paying a high tax for a reason. Hopefully then people could understand why they should try and quit.

    I am only a light smokers (1-2 a day).

    So it's not selfish to ban smoking just because people like YOU don't like it? Does you no harm, our choice.

    I reiterate my previous point as it seems to have been overlooked. now i no the risks of passive smoking but this could be bipassed with things such as smoking rooms in public places such as shopping centres. Another idea would be to let businesses apply for licences enabling people to smoke in the establishment (pubs, clubs etc). This would give the CHOICE back to the people whether they want to go there or not.
