Ley antitabaco de España de 2011

Seems as there is no risk getting caught if you are smoking in bars and restaurants or has anyone ever seen or heard of any inspection here in the urb.?

But maybe just chucked out !!!

Might as well smoke in bars, because in my local, they stand at the front door and the smoke blows through.

I don't think I've ever seen someone smoking within a bar since the ban.

i am a non smoker,but i think its disgusting and wrong for the owner of a bar not being able to have a smoking premises if he wants one,especially uk where mostly its cold and miserable outside.if non smokers dont like it they can go elsewhere.

Like you I've never smoked but am not that anti smoking. I've heard some pubs in the UK are stopping the vapour cigarettes.

Commented chalkie in Quesada 2015-12-10 11:10:16 UTC

nearly all the bars in uk wont allow vapour cigs
still have to go outside to use them

I thought they were just flavoured water. Should kill off a few more smoking pensioners. Expect to see it Spain soon.

Having just repatriated to my Country of birth, I was amazed to read that some pubs had banned smoking vapour ,. That was until I took a train journey and while waiting for a train on an open station ,I heard a station announcement, which stated the this totally innocuous pastime wa not allowed on bthe platform. Just when will these sick do gooders, stop bitching and get a life.
P.. I neither smoke or vapour.

Hello Alan,
Sorry to find out that you have returned to the UK. La Marina and this forum will miss you. When I was told about the vapour ban, I thought it was a joke. Coupled with the number of rubbish bins (5 last count) and different collection days, I was reminded why we moved here in the first place.
Still, the transport system is good, but people seem to moan about that.

Exposure to e-cigarette pollutants might be a health concern, as fine and ultrafine particles might be deposited in the lung.

American blogs selling alternatives doesn't really persuade me. All I tend to see is old people freezing outside Pubs on the way to a chest infection. The selling of Alcohol will be banned in pubs in the UK next.

You sre perfectly correct Chalkie, The rag promoting that Vapour smoking is hazardous to health and secind hand intake is of course from someone trying to sell, what they describe AS A PERFECTLY SAFE WAY TO STOP SMOKING

Hi Alan sorry you've left us for the 'other'place. Hope you find everything to your liking but doubt it. You know what it's like there, but, Merry Christmas and we'll miss your comments.

Hi PeteYep have just completed my first month, back in blighty, Must say As yet quite pleased even the weather aint bad. I am missing some of the people I met in Spain, Some of the good points include the lack of yappy dogs morning noon and night, lack of mossies, lack of cockroaches,and the thing that made my move imperative was the great public transport over here as compaired to La Marina Area.. Hope you are all well, and enjoying La Marina as much as I use to

Commented Alan in La Marina 2015-12-23 17:52:10 UTC

I assume you will still be reading and commenting on the good and the not so good points we have over here. We will miss your incisive comments!!
