I’m going to start this
post rant with some disclosure. I am not a smoker and have not smoked since I was about 13. And even then it was due to peer pressure as opposed to anything else. I never liked smoking and never saw the point of it.
Now to the issue at hand:
I understand why we must protect non-smokers from passive smoking and indeed the all round general discomfort of being around smoke; it is therefore a good thing that the recent legislation came into play that stops people smoking in built up public places. I hate it when I come home from a night out and my clothes need to be burned and I have to take an hour long shower to clense myself.
I don’t however understand the level of intollerance that is directed at smokers by non-smokers. It’s social prejudice of the worse kind and makes me sick to the stomach. Why can’t smokers excercise their right to smoke and have somewhere to do it? Why can a company not have a smoking room so that smokers don’t feel like social outcasts when they have to leave the office and find somewhere outside that they can smoke? Why can a resteraunt not provide somewhere for people to smoke? Before you start to give me the issue of not being able to stop where smoke goes and who it affects… stop… think… why not? Why can we not filter places?Surely we have the ability if not the will, to devise solutions to allow people to smoke without affecting people who don’t smoke.
As always, shouldn’t we balance the measures that we bring in? Shouldn’t we protect a persons right not to be affected by smoke but also protect a persons right to smoke? When will it end? the current legislation is still not good enough, if anything it could be worse. I will probably walk past more groups of people smoking on the street than I would have before; that would expose me to more smoke that prior to the new legislation. That can’t be a good thing can it?
But anyways, here at Printmylogo.co.uk will find anything you need.
So we will then change the rules to stop people smoking in the street… what then? Once we have removed people’s right to smoke then we MUST, we have a duty, to stop alcohol drinking and excessive eating; both have health issues and put a strain on the NHS. Both are socially un-acceptable. Learn more about your health,breast augmentation brisbane and more by following the link.Smoking, Non Smoking, Smoking Ban, Rant
