|I know I should stop whining and adapt, but, like fridge, I reckon lots of people will adapt by not going to pubs and restaurants.|
Oh, no, by all means - whine all you like, it's only natural. I just mean that people adapt after it's all said and done. I'm thinking in particular of one friend of mine who didn't just smoke, he LOVED smoking. He loved smoking, he loved drinking, he loved the bar, he loved to take a stand and get indignant. He swore up & down he'd stop going to his bar and travel to other towns when the ban took effect. And what happened to him? Absolutely nothing. Life went on as normal except he stepped outside for a smoke.
So bitch & moan while you can, hell, it makes for good pub conversation. You can chat up any & all cute strangers and bartenders by moaning about the smoking ban. But life will go on pretty much as it always has.
