New Non-Smoking :-) Law???

Recommended Posts

Can anybody possibly elaborate on the new non-smoking  laws, besides the new regulations regarding smoking at home.

Just to be ready for the rumor-spreaders.....

What is the rule in bars? Restaurants? Inside? Outside/ Aircon? Gardens of condominiums? Swimming pool?   Etc. Etc.

Got a 4 page TH version, but no chance to get a clear translation.

 

Thank you all.

Thank you all. Thanks for the factual answers and/or reminders to others  too. I have learned to write posts, leave them for 15 minutes unsent, then read them again. Often I realize with the second reading,  that my initial response was emotional, stupid, personal sentiment, but often no help or proper way to answer. Either re-write or delete. Seems that especially Pattaya produces a lot of what I just mentioned. Overall TV is a great forum and even so I have a broad knowledge in many respects, I have been glad many times, to get confirmation or new info, mostly to help other on TV. Thank you all and nice Sunday.  MS>

When I smoke my pipe out on my condo balcony, the balcony above is less than 15 feet away. Can I be cited? Also I have had birds land on the railing less than 15 feet away. Is that 'cruelty to animals'? I've been smoking a pipe for 56 years with no health problems. Hate to give it up. Very relaxing. Eases the stress (a real killer), especially at a high-pressure workplace. Einstein said he did his best work when relaxing with a pipe. Gen. MacArthur, Mark Twain, Hugh Hefner, Santa Claus, and Popeye too. I do not defend cigarettes. Those you inhale. Not so a pipe. Hate to see them lumped together.

Do what you want for the sake of humanity. If a law is so stupid that we can't even comprehend it then it's save to say the only thing we should to is Ignoring it...

yet another reason not to live in a condo.  Up to you if you smoke a pipe or not, but I would be mightily upset to be your neighbours, up, down, left and right, who also have to put up with it.

I visit beer bars and a go go bars on a daily basis. All of them allow smoking and in some go go bars they have a corner where most of the dancers smoke and drink non stop. It has made a few of my friends pay their bills and move on.

 

I'm pretty sure there were laws brought in a few years ago but like most things in Thailand it never got enforced. Well at least not in Pattaya.

Nope, I never touched a cigarette or alcohol in my life. Smoking is a disgusting habit. Just asking to be informed at my my next round-table, as a lot of rumors are being spread. 🙂

IMO they could ban sales all-together and ww. I see the consequences of smoking every week during my cancer treatments last 4 years - unrelated to smoking - also my parents back then did not know better and lit up our home. Both of them died of throat cancer/lung cancer. Horrific.

I talk to many sufferers (almost 100% smokers) with lung-cancer & throat-cancer, you should hear their stories and thoughts. A nightmare that never ends.....Just like most cancers, unfortunately. 

Have a good evening and stay happy & healthy & consider quitting :-), before the TH Gov. makes you 🙂.  MS>

excluding cigarette smoke - please list all the things you think you have been exposed too in your life past and present that cause cancer - if you have a clue it will be a very long list, then rate them compared to passive cigarette smoke - the latter will be well down the list if on it at all

 

enjoy your book
