Smoking ban

Messages  1 - 5 of 5

Jersey may well have banned smoking in places that serve food by May next year and in all public places by October.

What are your thoughts on this hot issue? Are the States right to ban smoking to protect the health of non-smokers or is it creating to much of a nanny state?

I've been out of Jersey now for nearly forty years, but my family still live there and I and my family visit at least once a year. Last year after arriving on a sunday, we went to the Adelphi for Sunday lunch, and what a lunch!
Anyway on the day before we were due to leave, we arranged to take my mother and my aunts out for lunch. Due to the fact that they are in their late eighties and early nineties, and of course, we really had a great meal there earlier in the week. We asked for a no smoking area and were cordially informed there were no such areas. The bar person did inform us that the window area closest to the bar was the least smokey and we booked that table. Suffice to say the staff offered a fantastic service and non of our relatives once complained about smoke.

Can't wait for the smoking ban to take effect. The sooner the better for everyone, including smokers. Those people who suggest that there should be smoking areas . . . forget it, it stinks and you could smell it a mile away, never mind the other side of the room! I'm looking forward to waking up after a nite out without the smell of smoke on my hair and clothes - roll on the ban.

Fully agree with the above.

Total smoking ban can not come quicker enough. Will be good to breathe clean air and not have the stink afterwards.

You are a few months ahead of England which makes me ashamed. See how well bans have worked without any loss of licenced or catering trade in Ireland New York and large numbers of other places. Now it should be actively banned behind the bike sheds a venue that might then be given over to more carnal experiments.
