It was international news when Britain banned smoking in public places on July 1. After the ban went into effect, sales of cigarettes dropped 7%. Borders, the book retailer, reported a 260% increase in sales of self-help books aiding in smoking cessation.
There is light at the end of the tunnel for smokers. Tobacco companies have created websites with maps of pubs with outdoor smoking facilities such as beer gardens.
Implications - These intimate outdoor patios may in fact be the perfect place to meet fellow smoking companions who will never judge you for your favorite habit. The inclusive nature of these smoking lounges are a rebellion against the UK smoking ban, proving that no laws or regulations can stop smokers from enjoying a good puff.
