Since this smoking ban in public places has been in force, I think we've been spoiled a bit by the fact that it's been mostly cold weather since.
Now that things are warming up a bit, I must say that in some ways I'm glad I have to go and stand outside the pub for my fag. The bloody place stinks of festering feet, armpits and a whole host of other things that I really don't care to think about, these days.
If anything, I think I'm smoking more now, on the strength of it!
It does make you wonder if the government is really helping anyone, other than themselves, with their 'motherly' behaviour modification rules.
How about a law that insists that people wash and purge themselves of gas before they enter a public building?
