    Default Smoking countries

    With total smoking bans spreading across Europe like a black stain, I wonder if we could gather information on the present and predicted status of bars, cafes, and restaurants in various countries?

    Ireland, Scotland, Italy: total ban indoors, i.e. all pubs non-smoking.
    England: coming soon.

    Don't know about future plans:
    Germany: currently smoking, many places don't seem to have a non-smoking area.
    Netherlands: likewise.
    Spain: smoking and non-smoking areas common.

    Spain - smoking inside is banned. Luckily weather is good enough most of the time to make sitting outside perfectly alright.

    Luxembourg - smoking inside was banned last August.

    New Zealand - smoking inside is banned.

    France: Outright ban, then totally ignore it. Except in the case of any foreigner they need to find something to charge them with.

    Las time I was there I think you could smoke in bars, even if they served food. Has it changed?

    In one place there was a restaurant, terrace, and bar: no smoking in the restaurant, but ok in the other 2, and the same food available in all 3.

    I was there in November (well Canary Islands).

    One restuarant was inside - no smoking.
    One bar was inside - no smoking.
    One restuarant/bar was outside but under canopy - you could smoke.
    One bar was part inside / part outside - you could smoke in the outside area only.
    No smoking inside the airport except for outside terraces.

    Where smoking was not allowed it was rigourously enforced.

    I was in the states last year and could smoke on the terrace of a restaurant (even when eating and surrounded by people tucking in). I then went to a bar where I had to go outside to smoke...

    Smoking is vile and smelly, should be banned everywhere!

    It's a killer and a drug so why isnt it classed as one.

    So is alcohol. Should that be banned too?

    I love hysterical reactions.

    Apparently it increases the size of your knob and makes you more attractive to women.
