I was just wondering - how many writers on this forum smoke?

Is it a cliche that the writer is surrounded by overflowing ashtrays, as s/he struggles for inspiration?

I smoke (though not at the computer) and am finding it hard to quit (which I really want to do) partly because when I'm excited about an idea, I immediately crave a nicoteenie.

Any thoughts?

No, I don't smoke and as a non-smoker, I welcome the ban.

But I think it "sucks" to be banning stuff.

Well I gave up a while ago, and started the odd cig when I drink. So to be honest when the ban starts it will help me. I just cant have a wine and not a ciggie, esp. when all my friends & my man occasionaly smoke's.When the ban comes it will be much easier too give up completely.

It is a dirty girty habit I agree.

However I do think pubs will suffer a profit loss. So yet again an infringment on our human rights and another knock for our small businesses

I smoke cigars from time to time. If you've never tried it, do it now, it's great.

I wouldn't let you b'stards smerk in my cab anyway! :D

Interesting that although alcohol causes 15000 deaths a year, a fortune in criminal damage, personal assault and murder, there isn't even a health warning on a bottle of beer.

Something to do with the fact that Blair and his cabinet drinks but does not smoke?

"Drink Responsibly"

What kind of idiots need health warnings anyway?

FIRE - Do not touch! (I heard because it's a finger print magnet)

Now seriously you're getting onto my hobby horse.

If they want to stop people drinking and driving BRING DOWN THE PRICE OF NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS IN PUBS.

I've got that off my chest now thank you.
