They've killed the pub trade here slowly by banning smokers, that and the big Tax grab from drinkers.

In the States, many casinos have designated areas or have banned smoking on the casino floor totally which has impacted revenue. Gamblers having to go outside to smoke usually walk to another casino.

Same here, but it is a state by state issue

Today, a smoker in the street in front of me apologised for smoking

Big deal

I think passive smoking risks are over-emphasised to make smokers feel extra guilty
