Mixed reactions over smoking ban

BBC NEWS | England | Manchester | Mixed reactions over smoking ban

Have to say as a none smoker we are loving the atmosphere in the pubs's so nice not waking up the next morning and your hair still stinking of smoke.

Before the ban I never expected pubs to have air akin to a Highland mountainside but there were a couple of pubs that really were beyond the pale. With that in mind we headed towards The Pilgrim and The Swan...both regular haunts in the past but on occasion they were like opium dens. So much nice nowadays...can't tell you how much more pleasant it was.

Hope the ban holds is it's got to be a step in the right direction (almost a 3rd of publicans saying it's increased trade!)...just need to perfect the holding-my-breath skills now to ensure a none-cancerous entry into every single building in the country.
