Where will all the non smokers drink when all the pubs have closed down ?!

Question: Where will all the non smokers drink when all the pubs have closed down !?
I drink at home mainly so if the pubs shut down it wouldn't bother me xWww@FoodAQ@Com

Sounds like you're not in the US!.

You should have no fear of all pubs closing down whether smokers are allowed in or not!.!.!.in good times or in bad!.!.!.people always drink!.

Case in point, during Prohibition here in the US from 1920 to 1933 when NOBODY was supposed to be drinking alcohol, speakeasys, or underground, secret bars, we doing brisk business!. The government banned production and consumption of alcohol and destroyed every shipment of it they could find if it was found out that someone was shipping it!.

Local mobs and individuals opened secret bars where moonshine and other homemade kinds of alcohol were served and they thrived until the Prohibition act was repealed during the Great Depression!.

After that, legal bars reopened and were packed just about all the time even when no one was supposed to have any money!.

Even now most of the smokers I know still go to their favourite watering holes and are grateful not to come home smelling like stale ashtrays anymore!. They go outside, have a smoke and come back in!. No big deal!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Interesting question!. Thing is, the pubs do a bigger business!. Many people don't want their food and drink to taste like smoke!.
In town we have several very busy pubs, and everyone thought they would go out of business with the smoking ban, but they report on the news that business couldn't be better and they love it!.
If you can't find a drink because a pub closes, you're really not too interested in finding a drink! :-) Www@FoodAQ@Com

i don't think pubs will close down for good!.!.!.!.the government will lose out too much money on tax!
i know a lot of people will turn to home brewing or go to supermarkets for beer but as for public houses etc, they will always stop open because the younger generation still spend too much on beer and going out, they wont stay in and have a drink will they!?!? noooo!Www@FoodAQ@Com

put it this way!.!.!.smokers never gave a toss about non smokers years ago!.!.!.!.their line was!.!.!.if you dont like it !.!.leave !? we pay the same for a drink and had to put up with breathing that crap in !? did any smoker really kick off when the law came in !? no ! the few odd renegades and thats it!. lets all drink to a hopeful 12 points !!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I really don't think that will happen!.!.!.do you!? Its great to get home after a night out without my clothes STINKING of other peoples smoke!.


Its great to see you all standing in the rain having a quick puff!.!.!.LoL!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Shouldn't you ask where all the 'non-smokers' will go to smoke when all the pubs have closed down!? I know a ton of folks who claim to be non-smokers - that is until they order a drink!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

With the price of booze in pubs etc now, and the rising cost of other things, I stick to drinking at home so it wouldn't make much difference!. Plus I can smoke here hurray!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

pubs will not close down due to what im assuming your refering to!. the no smoking law!. the past has showed it wont happen!. cali!.!.!.cle!.!.miami!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I've gone off going to the pub anyway!.!.!. its too expensive and I always end up sitting on my own for half the evening minding the bags while all my mates go off for a cigarette!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Oh please, just follow the trail of disgarded cigarette butts all over the damn place and you'll find the litterbugs!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

we will move all you lepers onto a random island and drink where ever the hell we want :)

in the nicest possible way!Www@FoodAQ@Com

They'll probably stay at home, just like they did when all the smelly smokers were in the pubs!Www@FoodAQ@Com

the same place as the smokersWww@FoodAQ@Com


Good question!. They will stop at home!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Many pubs have prospered from the smoking ban, especially quality pubs that serve quality food!.

The ones doomed to failure are naff northern boozers full of fat, pie-eating, beer swigging folks waiting for their inevitable heart attack!.

I am sure non-smoking barmaids everywhere are happy to know they have cut their risk of lung cancer!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
