No Smoking, Please



Smokers across England sparked up at work and in the pub for the last time before the ban on smoking in enclosed public places came into force.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

I would love to comment….but an ex-smoker comes off as either preachy or smug. But I am thankful that I am smoke-free!!


Hello, Carol.

For several years now in California–my permanent home–we have had a no smoking policy in restaurants. Recently, here in Az. where I am temporarily they also enacted a similar no smoking law.

I have no respiratory problems, and although I don’t appreciate smelling other people’s smoke, it doesn’t bother my breathing–just is a nuisance. But I have become accustomed to no-smoking restaurants, and when I go into a smoky, hazy restaurant in another state, it reminds me how terrible it is.

Joy today!



We have done the same thing here in Oz. all clubs and pubs, restaurants have a no smoking policy.. All clubs and pubs had to build out door smoking rooms and have enforced huge fines if found to be smoking…being an asthmatic I say Yaaaaaay…
