Anti-smoking brigade. Another idea

  lisa02 16:54 17 May 07

Someone said today (work colleague) that they thought smokers with kids should be up for abuse charges for making their kids breathe smoke.

Kids from smokers are more likely to catch illnesses like asthma, ENT problems and other chest problems and so on...

My partner grew up with chain-smoker parents (he doesn't smoke) and his chest is pretty bad, he gets chest infections all the time. He is also awaiting an ENT operation. Coincidence??? I dunno.

What's your thoughts?

Being a smoker for the better part of 35 years, I can understand the worries of a lot of people.

I have never smoked in the same room as my kids, ( I have my "smokers room" in a spare bedroom ), but feel that smokers seem to be an easy target just now.

If smoking is as big a danger as everyone is saying, why not just make it illegal. It would make for a healthier environment all round, and would save a lot of people, a lot of money.

But not until he finds a way to make money out of it.

To be frank I'm fed up with yet another thread about smoking.

If it's so bad why don't they ban them altogether.

yes I'm starting to feel the same way.

Why don't we get as much postings about the dangers and misuse of alcohol, which costs the country a lot more than smoking.
