This is a kind of test blog for the new YouTube/Google service.
Apart from that it's a true representation of what I feel about my hometown.

No Smirking!

So here I am, sitting in Browns with the no smoking ban in place.
How do I feel?
I'm happy for all the non smokers, they get to do their thing without being polluted by the likes of me. It must feel good if you don't smoke. I feel a bit odd having to disappear every now and then to get my fix but I'll get used to that.
Has it made me think more about giving up?
In one word, no.
I've smoked for a long time and I still like it. Changing how I smoke in public places won't really change when I smoke and besides, the smoking area here is quite a social space and that's one benefit I didn't foresee.
On balance it's all working out quite well for everyone.
