Looks like America really is one of the last countries to get the clue that smoking indoors is bad for your health! Even developing countries have gone smoke free before us. Oh well at least in July next year Wisconsin will finally join the get on the boat. SomethingI am super excited about seeing as I’m horribly allergic to smoke and if I can’t get peanuts on my flights anymore then why do is it still okay for me to be forced to have allergic reactions just for trying to be social. Well I know most of the ones closest to me are on the other side of that argument, but that’s okay my side is still the winning one! hehe.
Actually it doesn’t even seem to be an issue for Thais, at least around Bangsaen. It still seems to be a fad reserved for a few rebellious boy crowds. I’ve only seen one girl smoking the entire time I’ve been here. Really most of the smoking I’ve seen has been from American and Chinese professors and students, and all male. And despite the the tons of litter on the ground at least there really aren’t cigarette butts!
