while people are polluting the air in other ways

they don't have the right to complain about smokers
banning smoking in public would be extremely hypocritical
smokers should be polite...but they should be allowed to smoke

Pinko ...

The same laws were passed in Singapore ... The “walking past” people was a comment about how selfish smokers are: they seem to think that their habit needs to be shared. Let them all only smoke inside glass boxes!

This debate can go round in circles buy why do people persist in a habit that can kill them?

Can anyone explain that one?

"Let them all only smoke inside glass boxes!"

that's hardly a practical suggestion
smokers smoke for various reasons
generally because they enjoy it
many things can kill you...does that mean that you should stop doin things you enjoy?
this debate could go extremely deep
what's the point of "living" if you're not *living*?

Oh I don't know ...

I once saw a video where Tom Green went into a non-smoking restaurant ... He was inside a large glass box and smoking away - just to wind everyone up!

Anyone my exclamation mark should show that it was sarcasm ...

Like I say, smoking should be private. If smokers could contain the smoke in a private way then I wouldn't be bothered. If you want to do something which may kill you then that is your choice - I have no problem with that. However the smoke has no intelligence - it doesn't say "oh those are non-smokers I have better not waft towards them" ...

I have a great life ... and it doesn't need any alcohol, drugs or tobacco as fuel.

ok...i thought the exclamation mark was for emphasis

my bad
tom green is often hillarious...often lamo-spaghettio

can't you sympathize with the fact that smokers like to smoke and also like to go out...if you're at a 5hr gig...or at the pub having a drink...or at the casino...whatever...it's nice for them to be able to have a smoke too

maybe we should invent intelligent smoke

it's good that you enjoy your life without drugs...but many people enjoy their lives with drugs...and that's good too...and we shouldn't bring them down

Sure ...

Smokers can do whatever they want as long as it doesn't affect me or my family - I accept and acknowledge their right to smoke in private.

However I cannot go to pubs and clubs because they are filled with smoke. I have to carefully select where I eat to avoid the smoke, I have to walk past shops where the smokers congregate because they have to smoke outside.

If smokers want the right to smoke, then non-smokers want the right to a life without any smoke.

I support private smoking :)
