Thread Name: BS: Smokers in Europe?
Subject: RE: BS: Smokers in Europe?
Thanks for the information, friends. One of the reasons I ask this question is that I live in a state where the "health nazis" have won. Smoking is banned indoors except in bars. If an establishment serves food above a certain level then there is no smoking allowed.
That has skewed my expectations of the rest of the world. When I started visiting Curmudgeon's gathering in the bar in the next state I was surprised and take aback to find that people were smoking. But, if you want to go out and about you have to put up with the local conditions. If the local conditions require me to breath tobacco smoke then I will bite the bullet and go forth.
Still, it's nice to know that there are other places than Maine that have recognized the wisdom of cutting back on places where smokers can fill the air with toxic reek.
