No More Bringing the Bar Smell Home With Me

Filed under: — Kate @ 1:45 am EST

That is, as long as City Council passes this bill: Philadelphia Smoking Ban.

I really, really, REALLY hope it passes.

Of course, this will probably just encourage me to drink more…

I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope they pass this bill!

    Although I don’t really know if I totally agree with the bill from a legal standpoint, I am totally happy that bills like this are bing passed. Probably only because I’m a non-smoker and HATE reeking of cancer when I come home.

    Here’s hoping it passes. But also, here’s hoping Philly bars/restaurants don’t go through the same crippling economic impact that New York went through when they instituted their policy.

    As a smoker (but one who’s in the process of quitting - 2+ days without one!) I actually prefer having to go to a designated smoking area outside. You get to hang out with fellow smokers, and there’s a reason to get out of the din.

    Oh, and BTW, hearing the “you’ll get cancer” freak-out from liver-killing alcholics never gets old *rolls eyes*

    Actually, NYC had positive economic growth after the smoking ban, though I would not actually credit the ban for it.

    I didn’t know you were a regular smoker–just casual, I thought. I’m glad to hear that you are quitting.

    And hey, at least my drinking only impacts me (usually). I’m not passing on second-hand alcohol to non-drinkers’ livers. ;-)

    Good thing I’m not one of those evil liver-killers.
