Let's Give Up Smoking


What would you say the most popular day to give up smoking is?

Probably New Years Day, right. A resolution of health, perhaps, that usually lasts 'til they go to the bar and get a second-hand whiff of that sweet tobacco mist.

Problem solved. It is now illegal to smoke in any public place in Illinois. Also, by public place, they mean any private business, too.

And while I am a non-smoker against the ban for reasons of liberty and other insights previously discussed here, I have to give the state government credit for choosing January 1st as the ban date. They knew that people would see it as a good reason to try and quit.
