    no.

    i had to quit smoking a year ago because of lung problems, and banning it from pubs and clubs has made it possible for me to quit.

    smoking is bad dont do it.

    i deffo agree on this, need 2 quit myself
    too many ravers smoke and small nights suffer when half the dancefloor disappears cos they need a cig..its not just a cig tho, peeps chat outside for ages, which isn't wrong cos its good to meet new people and socialise but on the promotors point of view it isn't good because the club looks empty and when you get a big name dj in they aren't gonna be impressed one bit playin to one man on the dancefloor..

    its a hassle for smokers & its a haven for non-smokers

    i look at it as if i was a non smoker i would want to be breathing on the cleanist air possible :D

    well ppl still smoke, so the law doesn't do much difference

    and the Portuguese police is too afraid to face the dnb crowds

    Funny, I never had a problem blazin up near the front. Throw some crack in the rizla too, and give the b-boy stance..usually does the job. Everyone gives you a wide berth then.:wave:

    thats cos u is a badaman!


    i think its fair that non smokers shouldnt have to breathe in our smoke, i just resent the fact that i have to go into sub arctic conditions to have a fag - why not have designated smoking rooms?? the smoking ban was supposed to stop the unfair treatment of non smokers but now it seems to be unfair on smokers.
    smoking areas are good social additions to clubs though or if u need 2 get away from the music for a while

    Not at all, you can still smoke on the sly inside most venues anyway.

    Uptill now I have thought it has, but as quitting smoking is one of my new years resolutions I'm glad you cant smoke in raves will make it easier for me to quit
