Smoking: Kicking the Habit

Here's my newest listening activity on the issues of smoking and its effects on ourselves and those around us. Share your opinions on this topic:

What are the basic laws or rules of etiquette regarding smoking in public or at home in your area today? How have these laws changed over the years? For example, in some places, smoking is not allowed in public buildings, and you have to smoke a certain distance away from the entrance and windows of public buildings.


  1. Greetings from Guatemala, I like your website I learn so much, my father smokes every night before go to the bed, I hate when he does that

  2. smooking is not good for human health, since it affects slungs in a negative way and after all it produces obstruction for breathing and some other consequences.

  3. Where I live, Brazil, the most quantity of places has a place to smoke, in general, it is an open area.When you go to private public places, like a restaurant, a shopping, a night house or anything like it, you must smoke in this area... But in free public places like parks, streets, etc, you can smoke and do not have to pay attention around you...So, there are exceptions, in closed public places, like museums, you must not smoke, because it is closed... So, in my point of view, would have exist a law that you can only smoke in specific open areas, because the smoke of cigarettes is very prejudicial for people that do not smoke!

  4. where i lived before, in Vietnam. a few years ago, smoker could smoke everywhere they want. And now, has a few place they can't smoke. But people still smoke front of the kids. they don't care who you are, kids, women, pregnant women etc. I am extremely disappointed and angry.

  5. As a Vietnamese, this happened a lot in my country. People smoke anywhere they want to, and even in school. But thanks to the government, this has changed. Nowdays, if you smoked outside, you will have to pay a large fine or 12 months in prison.
