In support of this ban, I have made it my duty to go to the pub every day this week. Had a great Sunday Roast and was in the pub all night yesterday. It was so great to leave without smelling like an ash tray and having to wash my clothes - also my passive smokers cough has cleared up, coincidence?
The ban seems to be self enforcing nicely, most smokers are obeying. Just a couple of minor quibbles. In the George on Trafalgar St, smokers are right outside the entrances and it seems to get sucked into the pub a bit - but I am not going to complain about this. A smoker lit up last night in the Montpelier Inn but it seemed to be a genuine error - he simply had forget and soon put his cig out. Apart from that things are going great. I can finally go to the pub without having to suffer. Looking forward to going to the quiz at the Crescent tonight and also the humanist meeting at the Farm Tavern - both great pubs but always so smoky it put me off going - now I can hopefully relax.
