Reply To: Smokers Alley (aka Heathrow Airport)

To be fair Anthony , I did say its impact was badly thought through rather than the policy of the ban itself . It’s impact led to smokers areas being created which didn’t really solve everyone’s problem , I don’t think smokers like standing near doorways to buildings with poor facilities and non smokers still are subjected to a haze of smoke they have to walk through , which almost defeats the point of the exercise .
I think many places didn’t really have a plan of how to deal with the situation .
I agree with your point of society moving on and accepting new issues and I do think that smoking tobacco will carry on declining , it seems many people now are smoking these e cigs ,
At least now people aren’t subjected to the effects of passive smoking which is what the ban is really about
