    I was just reading a thread here about getting the smoke odors out of a quilt and some mentioned being bothered by smoke in restaurants.

    Is smoking allowed in restaurants in your state?

    It hasn't been allowed in Ohio for several years now. I used to barely be able to be in a restaurant before! It is so wonderful NOT to have smoking allowed in restaurants!

    What about where you live?

    Banned in NH and MA. It's wonderful, especially in the workplace, not to have to contend with smoke!

    Pretty much says it all here in California. I'm happy with the ban. Two years ago we were at a restaurant in another state. They asked us "smoking or no-smoking". I was shocked because I hadn't heard that asked in years. Apparently there was an "invisible wall" between tables that was going to keep the smoke away.

    Reminds me of the quote "Having a smoking area in a restaurant makes as much sense as having a peeing area in a swimming pool."

    The more you think about it, the grosser it gets!

    banned in Illinois for just 2 or 3 years. The ban includes all public places, including bars.

    No. California has banned all smoking in all buildings except private residences or places that are only a bar. It has had no economic impact, but a wonderful impact on the quality of the air in all public places.

    I smoked until 10 years ago, and stopped when the Lord told me to. I won't explain that....it's between me and Him!! :-) :thumbup:

    No smoking in any public buildings at all. No malls or bars or government buildings. The only indoor place that smoking is still allowed is in your own home. Love it, love it, love it.

    there are some bars around here that still allow smoking. I think it has something to with the size of the bar and if food is served, I THINK!!
