Since I’ve been working in the city I can’t help but comment on this disgusting habit. When I go to get my lunch, I can’t walk outside without walking through a general smog of cigarette smoke. People stand everywhere just outside business and fag away.
Probably my biggest pet hate is the people who stand just on the edges of Boost Juice (on King William Street near Rundle Mall). The shop front opens out onto the side walk, and even though smoking is not permitted inside, people seem to think it’s ok to just stand on the edge and lean in, cuz there’s no door. As a pregnant lady, I can’t even get a HEALTHY boost juice without being subjected to having to stand near people who must insist on sharing their dirty habits.
Ok, it’s obvious I’m pretty pissed off about it, but I’m soooo glad that smoking has been banned from Pubs and Nightclubs.
Seriously smokers, if you must smoke, then smoke………..but don’t make other people, particularly ladies that are pregnant (and cigarette smoke is known and proven to cause harm to the fetus), be subjected to your habit.
A little bit of respect please!
