I am a smoker. Have given up many times, but can't last. My mother died from lung cancer Sep 04 (non-smoker). Us smokers are bombarded with anti-smoking text. Every time I open a pack I am told that it kills, smokers die young, and many other facts. TV ads give stark warnings - people dying of cancer, people who can't breath without a nebuliser. The latest advert has made me even more uncomfortable, the one about blood clots. Brilliant advert. So, let us imagine that the Government pass a bill to ban smoking, not just in public places, a complete ban. Tobacco becomes an illegal drug. TWO QUESTIONS 1. Why don't they. 2. What would happen.
