article imageSmoking Banned in UK today

By Kyle McColl     Jul 1, 2007 in Lifestyle
Smoking is one of the most commonly used legal drugs in existence, with the only other majorly used drug being alcohol. But for the past few years the UK Government has been fighting for a way to stop smoking.
And now they've found it. From today (1st July 2007) smoking will now be banned in all public places. The only place where smokers can have fags now is in the comfort of their own homes.
If you happen to get caught smoking, then you could get fined up to £50 or get sent to Court to face up to the crime. Tough judgement but one the government believes is necessary to stop smokers from wasting their lives away with nicotine.
The BBC website have launched several videos and articles to help people with smoking as well as smokers' talking about their habits.

There has also been news about the Government trying to cut down on binge drinking and alcoholism but they seem to be focusing on smoking as of the moment.
