Ireland where I live is the first coutry to have a smoking ban.
ie. No smoking in an enclosed work place.
This includes shop, pubs, restaurants, offices, all public transportion (even taxis).
There are exceptions - long term residental homes, prisons etc.
Norway has since taken it up

There is approx 98% compliance with the ban
It works because it not up to individuals to enforce the ban
Those (ie pubs) who continually flaut the law are subject to large fines and possible prison sentances.
Already there is a drop in tobacco smoking and alot of Irish have given up.

There is a major difference in going out without having to smell like an ashtray coming home.
And alot of pubs etc have smoking shelters or beer gardens to accomodate the hard liners.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
