I went to dinner last night and on my way to a coffee shop I saw this poster and thought about the city of Calabasas here in Southern California banning all smoking in the city. To my knowledge it is the first city to do this but of course there are still some places you can smoke.

Are we getting that healthy?

Yes, it's getting harder and harder for the smokers (I'm nonsmoker, by the way). Here in Germany the laws are not that strict yet. But maybe it's just my feeling but I think that there are less smokers already...

Here in Argentina you can smoke everywhere!!!!! I remember one day ( a year ago) being in line in a bank, and a 55-or-so-year-old guy lighted up a cigarette right there!! They're trying to reinforce smoking laws, but at the speed of how things are going here, I'll bet it will take some time :)

My wife just returned from Greece and smoking is rampent there. Here in Atlanta There are very few places left, even most bars now have to enforce smoking bans. I'm a non smoker but I think people who smoke should have some rights too.

I know restaurants and bars don't allow smoking and most office building designate a smoking area. The smoking areas are usually outside in a hidden area. I am also a non smoker but I agree with Mark. I think Spain also just banned smoking in restaurants and bars.

In New York City and New Jersey you can't smoke in any restaurants/bars/buildings, etc. It's great for non-smokers because you don't leave the bar smelling, but you should see the masses huddled outside the door at 2am in January trying to get their fix!

Add me the "non smoker" column also. What I hate is that awful moment when I walk past the smokers clustered around the entrance of a building. Seriously they deserve a place to smoke but I wish it were not at the entrances.
