I also hate do gooders as well as council arseholes they are only doing it to get money .If they had provided some ashtrays on the wall i would have used them and my friend was smoking a cigarette that i gave to him because he hadn't has one since yesterday and was stressed out.I dont suppose you have ever dropped any litter or done any petty thing your not supposed to.As for setting bins on fire i don't suppose you have ever been angry about something that has happened to you and made an off the cuff comment either doing gooding leftie tree hugger i suppose :wink:

Dear all,

My old mans 66 and smokes since he was at school, he spends 20 mins when he gets up hacking his lungs up and breathing heavily , then theres the taste issue where he cant taste properly as his taste buds are shot to pieces and finally its the psychological aspect of it all where its basically an addiction wheres hes chose it over the family really.

Theres not much difference between a junkhead and my old man as he would do anything for his ciggies, this has a bad effect on the family as im always on edge incase he drops down brown bread or has a heart attack , but no you just cant tell him any different.

I think theres some truth in the saying that its the slowest form of suicide :(

How ironic...fined for dropping cigarettes yet take their advice and put it into a bin ( :roll: ) and it could go up in flames. Suppose you'd get done for that too.

Not condoning dropping cigarettes on the floor (One of the worst things along with chewing gum) but that was stupid advice on the part of the council really.

Nobody has mentioned (or have they) that the biggest smokers in the world are predominantly asian. The chinese and koreans seem to smoke more so than any other race on the planet.

Really sorry to hear that mate, very bad luck. :| Unfortunately this is a sign of the times and is becoming more common in this fascist Orwellian state. It happened to someone I know in Peterborough, £50 for dropping a cigarette butt on the floor, you couldn't make it up. You must be furious.. :x

Yes wasn't best pleased mate.I know dropping litter is wrong and all that it was just the attitude of the council worker.The policeman wasn't to bad he seemed a bit embarrassed to be there and that he had better things to do.The money the council paid for her and the policeman to do that all day could easily have been spent on putting ashtrays and some signs up.It is just another way for the council to get money out of people.

Being born is the slowest form of suicide. Technically. Smoking speeds the whole process up. Not like cyanide though.

I saw Coffee and Cigarettes at the cinema when it was released. Fascinating film and one that I'm now going to go and get a copy of. Thanks for reminding me C.

I am 24 years old and started seriously smoking at 16. I smoke 18 a day. I but tobacco because its more value for money than a packet of cigs and its not as dry. I think the smoking ban is a great idea and have no problem with smoking outside as you end up chatting with some random person that can be interesting. I do want to stop and have tried but have found it a huge struggle. I smoke a lot less than i did before I had children as I used to smoke cannabis all day every day and never actually have just a rollup. I rarely drink and other than cannabis have never touched drugs (well i do like my cups of tea, not sure if that counts). I don't see why people think that killing yourself with cigs is any worse than drinking more than a couple of alcholic drinks a week which can destroy your liver. I have full respect for non smokers and would not even consider smoking in a non smokers house even if they didn't mind. I hated my mum smoking as a child so I can fully understand how they feel.

I smoke. I started when I was in my second year at uni, and haven't really stopped since (I'm now 25). I really don't like that I do, and I think it's ridiculous with the whole 'I want to try and stop' (why should it need to be an effort?) but yet, here I am.

I'm loving the smoke free pubs ! Smokers can smoke away just it shouldnt affect anyone elses health. Said it before, i think there should be 'smokers pubs' (not all of them) but the non smokers dont have to go to these.

But it is great on a friday night going to a range of pubs and not coming out with your clothes stinking of smoke. Weird now looking back to the 'old days' of being in a pub and being full of smoke and being a nightmare.

from movie kingpin-
Ishmael: You should try to quit. They say its bad for your heart, your lungs. It quickens the aging process.
Roy: Who's done more research than the good people at the American Tobacco Industry? They say its harmless. Why would they lie? If you're dead, you can't smoke.
