Should smoking be banned in public places?
I have very stong feelings regarding smoking in public, mostly because I cant stand it. The smell of cigarette- it makes me sick and suffocated. It is extremely annoying to have to be subjected to it when I dont want to, and in places where I least expect it, like a bus stop.
I accept that people have a right to smoke if they want to, but people who smoke should realise that there may be people like me who cant bear the horrible smell. There are health problems associated as well, but that is secondary for me.
Every time I go to London I walk around with my nose covered unless I am inside a shop or restaurant. It seems to me that every other person on the streets of London smoke. Perhaps that is why London is so polluted!
Any how I really think that people who choose to smoke should so where it does not bother the ones that dont want to.
