ejsant BS: Happy birthday to Ireland`s clean air a (40) RE: BS: Happy birthday to Ireland`s clean air a 03 Apr 05

Greetings All,

Here in New York it was thought that banning smoking in the Pubs would be the death of the industry. Speaking from first hand experience in the pubs I frequent there has been no drop in business. Quite the opposite I must say. I would look to sales of the nectar and brew to see if there has been a drop off in business. I am sure there are those Publicans that have suffered from the ban but over all I would imagine that overall business in Ireland has kept up just as business here has.

I am not in favor of telling others what they can and cannot do. That said, I am also not in favor of the actions of some threatening the health of others. Since those that smoke can go outside to do so I feel the ban is the best compromise between health and personal choice. I smoked three packs of Marlboro a day for over thirty years and yet after five years of non-smoking I wouldn't call my self an ex-smoker. I just don't smoke at this time. I certainly appreciate not smelling like an ashtray when I return from a night's playing in the Pub.
