Ever since I quit smoking 2 years ago, I can't stand to go into a bar or a bowling alley where there is smoke. I hate when my clothes and hair smell like smoke! I never thought I would notice such a difference! I'm looking forward to this change as well. (didn't think I would.)

I hate smoking and being near smoke, but I don't think this is the right way to go about it. I think we can find a happy medium for non-smokers and smokers.

I've suggested this before: Like alcohol have certain places apply for smoking licenses. Those places would have to have a sign or something that says they allow smoking. That way us non-smokers can't complain about smoke and can avoid the place while the smokers can have a place to smoke and enjoy their meal, drink, bowling... whatever.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I'm one of those smoke when I drink people so this will definitely help me to stop because alcohol + cigarettes always went together for me.

Can't wait. I hate smelling like smoke.

I quit smoking but burn the occasional butt. I think you should be able to smoke in bars and coffee houses, they just go together.

This is going to be one of those things when we look back 30 years from now and can't believe they allowed it. Like smoking on an airplane.

I like the idea of the no smoking in certain places. I don't like they idea of no smoking in a bar. People go to the bar to have a smoke and a drink. If you don't smoke an it bothers you than don't go to the bar. Bars have always been smokey you non smokers know that. quit crying about it.

If my calculations are correct, this will create ice... OH NO, KILLER MUSTARD GAS!

Personally, I would go to bars more often if they were smoke-free. I hate coming out of a place smelling like that crap.

thats what you guys can have, your own private clubs, those arent banned.

as for banning for "your own good" that would be if they banned cigarettes from being sold. but they arent banning them. they are banning smoking them in public places where non-smokers have to put up with 2nd hand smoke where we cant breathe and have to stink like the rest of the smokers. its for OUR health. go ahead and smoke, go smoke all day long but dont do it next to me while im at a bar or restaurant trying to breathe and enjoy the evening.

It was more of a joke about banning alcohol. I really wish they would just outright ban tobacco. All this can't smoke here, can't smoke there bullshit is annoying. Either make it 100% legal or 100% illegal. All you nonsmokers will be bitching then too when your taxes go up because the government is losing a boat load of money.

Hey, I'm a non-smoker but I think you smokers should have a place to smoke.

What bothers me are the smokers who are inconsiderate of non-smokers. Like here in the Loop you see smokers huddled together right outside the buildings sucking down their cancer sticks forcing us to walk through the cloud to get into the building. Even with the no-smoking 15 feet from the entrance law smokers don't give a crap.

And don't get me started on butts everywhere. Rude and disgusting. I'm sure if smokers were more considerate there wouldn't be such a fuss.

Good point.

On a side note: I would love for someone to burn a cigarette between the eyes of that jackass that does those "Truth" commercials. By the way, WTF is he? Is he Black? Is he White? Is he both? Either way, he is 100% JACKASS.
