I should begin by stating that I’m not anti-smoking.
Despite never being a smoker myself my tolerance threshold for a past-time that gets so many hot under the collar (not literally) is pretty high.
I’ve always been willing to adopt an “each to their own” attitude.
If people want to smoke, let them – although such an attitude obviously doesn’t stretch to Lichfield’s bad drivers, skateboarders in general, reality TV, Jamie Oliver, Thatcher…the list does go on a bit.
This easie-oasie approach to cigarettes (not forgetting cigars and pipes) explains why I felt the various anti-smoking laws introduced in recent years were a little draconian to say the least.
But there is another reason why I now want the anti-smoking ban lifted…you can find out what over on The Lichfield Blog.
