Description:
In this age of no smoking in public places, would you support someone who started a smokers only bar, lounge or restaurant? The non-smokers would not be discrimated against but rather, they would be advised that smoking is accepted and allowed and thus entering the premises would be at their own risk.

    well smoking is not illegal so if it is in a public restaurant and the owners do not mind then what gives the state the right to say well restaurant owner we don't like it so you can not do it if i own a business it should be my choice not the statesI quit smoking three months ago and i cant stand the smell anymore.. it ruins eating..and yea 2nd hand smoke is really bad. Plus banning it everywhere makes it harder to be a smoker..and everyone should quit. That stuff is evil and i have every room to talk cuz im a former smoker. That stuff should be illegal. It kills how many people?!?!

    This is a moot debate, restaurants and bars should be divided into two categories Those who permit smoking and those who do not permit it. Bars' owners should choose if they want to allow or not, so customers can go to any bars knowing that is is free of smoking or not in advance.No, I smoke and even I wouldn't want that. I actually prefer to smoke outside and away from other people. I don't think it is healthy for other people to smoke inside and it's not nice when people are trying to eat. I also couldn't smoke and eat at the same time or just after. I can't really taste much after I smoke for about 10 minutes. The smoking ban didn't bother me one little bit because like I said I like smoking outside and can see why people don't want smoking indoors in public places. I wouldn't even smoke in my own house if I could. The smoke clings to everything in smokers homes, even the wallpaper. Not allowing us to smoke outside though would be incredibily harsh. I think we should be allowed to smoke in the outside and away from other people. Not all smokers smoke right next to non-smokers. Also smokers are not bad people, we are just addicted to smoking and it is hard to stop. I've smoked for 7 years now but I'm cutting back and quitting because I'm sick of smoking now. I don't get though why some friends of smokers go outside with them while they smoke and stand next to them out of their own choice and then complain about the smell etc, shouldn't common sense tell them to stay inside or move away from them! I've seen this happen many times and it does irritate me because the smoker is being considerate in going outside yet some non-smokers follow them and then think the smoker should have to move away from them or smoke in the other direction when they themselves are the ones who followed and could move! My friend has done this to me and I just think wth did you follow me knowing why I'm going outside! I disagree with others, not all smokers are selfish and it's not fair to label all smokers the same. Not all non-smokers are the same so why is it right to label us as selfish? We actually are people as well.

    It's just another subject that has descended into typical modern-day hysteria. The passive smoking argument has been a great gift to the self-appointed guardians of everyone's health even though extensive research by the WHO revealed that it was at best unproven and at worst downright nonsense. Here in the UK the discretion-free legislation has been in large part responsible for many pub closures which apparently continue at the rate of 30 plus per week. And CAMRA, claiming to stand up for British pubs, endorsed this crazy law! Now they are complaining about the consequent pub closures. I think a sensible answer is to allow licensees of pubs to decide for themselves whether to be smoking or non-smoking. This idea always turns the antis into apoplectic ranters because they want you to do as they say, not to have free choice. If pub A has smoking I can choose whether or not to go. If pub B is non-smoking then you have your option to drink smoke-free. Personally I think it is all symptomatic of our PC nanny-state times. If you don't die of the many things pressure groups disapprove of the chances are you'll die of something far worse and more expensive. How about banning piped pop music instead? That's everywhere you go these days, just like rat poison!NOPE! simply for the fact that second hand smoke causes diseases also! why should anyone else get sick for another persons bad habit!

    I personally would not visit it but I think is should be allowed. Then I can make the choice to not bring me and my children in harms way. Other already choose to smoke so they should be able to choose a place where it is permitted.That's very popular in Egypt, only they call it a Hooka Lounge (spelling) I live in california and I'm NOT sure but I thought I saw a building that said coming soon, Hooka Lounge. But my husband was driving a little on the fast side, guess I should check to see if that's what it said. I think it's a good idea! (I'm not a smoker though) As much as people are against smoking these days it may be hard. In my opinion, I don't see the harm as long as those who enter are 18 with ID. Besides, if they want to cut their lives short because they want to smoke and get lung cancer, have heart problems and/or die because of it then let them. I don't care if they kill themseves with smoke, just as long as I don't have to be in that place. It may sound harsh but that should be their choice to open a place up like that...... And for crying out loud, they even ban smoking outside of buildings in some areas. So why not give them a place where they can. Just my thoughts.

    Pretty much was that way already,,some bars and resturaunts went non smoking while others decided to stay smoking, and nobody forced a smoker or non smoker to patronize EITHER of these businesses. Almost all public buildings such as shopping malls , courthouses, etc etc were already non smoking, All these bans do is FORCE the small business owner to ban smoking isntead of leaving it up to the proprietor to choose. Yeah it sucks but he who whines the loudest wins/. Lets put an issue on the ballot forcing the activist to adopt the familes of those who lose jobs and business due to smoking bans/!I don't know... I think a more safer model woul be a cigar shop that also served some entrees... however, that's just because I'm afraid of new things (no proven business model=bad investment, words of Warren Buffet)... I wouldn't quit on the idea though... you may wanna take an informal survey in the area you want to start... see if the smoking section is frequently occupied or that there's alot of smoke shops around, etc.

    Id be happy if there were smoking bans where i live. No i dont smokeI am not a smoker and I appreciate smoking laws against smoking while inside a public building, but outdoor smoking bans are just ridiculous. Smokers have rights too.

    HEY .....................HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF FREEDOM? THAT WOULD TOTALLY SUCK .............WHAT NEXT HOLDING HANDS W/ YOUR MATE..SHHHHHHHHESH! freedom of choice!!!!!!!!!!!!I hate smoking. I can't breathe when Iam around it. I think is gross and unhealthy. It is not my business though to tell the whole world around me to stop smoking. I would like to have it banned in restaurants just because while I am eating, I hate the smell of cigarretes. But when you go to bars or outside stuff, you have ot expect smoking.

    I am a smoker, so is my husband. My daughter (25) is not. When there WAS smoking allowed in Illinois, we always went to non-smoking sections. I don't think it's a big deal to go outside, and I DO sympathize with the nonsmokers. I would NOT want to hear you singing at the top of your lungs (= Go outside for that!Absolutely not. Smoking isn't a right - it's a health threat to others around smokers. It's also a huge annoyance to others who want to enjoy their meals. People who want to smoke can find places that are dedicated to smokers where they only endanger themselves.

    Well taking in secondhand smoke is almost on par with actually smoking a cigarette oneself. I think restaurants should have designated areas for people who want to enjoy a smoke at their table because it would be unfair to the people who prefer not to smoke if someone can light a cigarette anywhere they please. You made a good comparison, and no, they aren't really any different. It's all about infringing on the personal space of others.Actually now that you put it that way no. Not being able to sing and dance in a restaurant would be the same as bot being able to smoke. My mother smokes and I can not stand the smell afterwards. We had a discussion and she does by smoke in the house anymore. Also, there are many children and adults that have Asthma. I actually have this myself and when I am around people that smoke I am not able to breath. Also there is somethig called second hand smoking and tons of kids around the world get lung cancer because of second hand smoking.

    not at all sir.I highly doubt it, because second hand smoke risk the health of non-smokers. And that really isn't right, though I'm not in favor of the ban in bars myself (you don't go to a bar to get healthy, lol). However -- if e cigarettes continue to catch on and prove to be safe, people may end up using those, no benzene rings to cause cancer in other people (or the smoker).

    i don't know about illinois, but in ohio ever since they made that law, there has been no smoking in public buildings and i don't think it will ever change, at least not any time soon. but i personally like it, i don't smoke and i remember going to restaurants before and even though we weren't in the smoking section, i could smell it and breathe it and i had minor allergies so sometimes that would set them off. so i like going to restaurants and not having to breathe in other people's smoke.Well, I live in Illinois. Chicago to be specific. But by the looks of things, it looks pretty serious. I don't think you'll be able to smoke in bars or restaurants for a long time. But I think it's a good law. Your not killing your self and it's healthier for eveyone around you.

    It shouldn't. Second-hand smoke is worse than first-hand. I used to smoke 2 packs a day, but never at meals. I love to taste my food and smoking hinders that a lot.It shouldn't. The smell is so nasty it's impossible to enjoy your meal. Plus, my lungs shouldn't have to suffer because someone else wants to smoke. It's true that second hand smoke is worse than first. Be considerate.
