    I quit smoking about 10 years ago and my shirt size went from medium to magnum. It is amazing how one regains their sense of smell after quitting. You can single out a smoker blindfolded.

    Having a "no smoking" section at a resturant is like having a "no peeing" section at the pool! I personally have nothing against smokers. You get kind of de neuralized after being in the Navy for many years, but my wife is very offended by it, so I guess I am too . . .<whack> I mean I AM too! Resturants do seem to be the worst though. Ihave seen some where they seem to alternate tables one smoking then one non smoking. Does not make sense sometimes.

    I have been quit for over three years. And did not smoke in one when I smoked. And sure don't care for it now.
    Man its bad if people can't do without one long enough to eat.

    I might catch heck for this one, but there should be no smoking in restaurants and bars, or in any public building. The health risks of second hand smoke are a proven fact. I think everyone should be free to do what they want in this country, unless it causes harm to others, and smoking causes harm to bystanders. Even having a designated "smoking section" in a restaurant is useless because the smoke still carries into the non-smoking sections.

    I heard on a local radio station that some bars and restaurants that prohibit smoking actually get more customers once they ban smoking....I thought that was interesting.

    Yea! YEA! Yea! I will not choke one down till I get to the truck normally.But, if I want one when I'm done spendin my money I would like to do so.

    They say second hand smoke kills. The only problem is that it don't do it reliably! LOL!

    Dave,

    Heck is for kids. This is how it's done.

    And speaking about kids, I rather have some cigar smoke in my face, cigarette ash in my food and a cigar butt doing swimming ballet in my shot glass than have to sit in a place with crying babies and / or out of control ankle bitters acting like they're in the playland at McDonalds.

    PARENTS: You think your little darlings are being cute? NOT!!! Their being OBNOXIOUS. But, if a Cracker Barrel had an obnoxious brat section, you'd be off to the local court house, in a heart beat, filing a law suit and / or walking a picket line in front of the place, screaming about YOUR rights.

    Live and let live. Besides, you have a greater risk of dying from the fats in that restaurant food than you do sitting thirty feet or more from the smoking section.

    Mike

    I am a smoker and as long as they have a smoking section I'm going to smoke. So if you don't like the smoke maybe you should eat at home.

    I quit somking several times, but I didn't get all indignant when someone else lit up. And I may have come real close a time or two, I never told parents they should have left there whiney curtain climbers at home. Guess I had some stupid notion about them having rights too.
