Well, I read it in an article by the charming Jaime Peņafiel so it probably isn't true...but still.

Re:

In these days of terrorism and natural disaster, why shouldn't they enjoy the time they have and if that includes smoking then good luck to them.

There's too much of this politically-correct nose-poking goes on. They aren't stupid, they know the health issues but we're all going to pop off anyway so why try and live and endless life?

You know what amazes me about my country?

It would seem like you could light up a joint, or snort coke in public, and no one would bat an eyelash, but the moment you light up a cigarette, people look at you like you just committed a mass murder.

I have never understood the argument my friends in college, who would do all sorts of drugs, BUT NOT SMOKE. Why? Smoking will kill you.......and what would the other stuff do?

When we focus on one particular drug in this country we beat the issue to death so much that people are treated like pariahs and then made to feel like they are filth, but then there are those who think legalizing marijuana should be allowed and smoking should be outlawed.

At what point in time did common sense leave us in this world?

I have a close relative and my neighbour who died of lungcancer (and both smoked a lot) and it is no joke for all involved and life never seemed so sweet until the moment they heard that it was terminal.

On a lighter note, I do not mind smokers in restaurants during desert but when some one is smoking at at table close to yours during a starter and maincourse it does influence the way food tastes.

I've lost several relatives due to smoking and so I wasn't taking it lightly. But freedom of expression and choice is one that we all have. We can do as we please unless we're breaking the law. I'm a Queen Sofia rank smoker - only after meals, but there's nothing I like more at the end of a horrid day than a glass of sherry and a cigarette. I was caught up in the 7/7 attacks here - after that I realised there was no point not doing things to prolong life because you can't decide your own time. :)

Ahh...good answer BeatrixFan.

One must remember that drink habits differ from country to country and sherry is popular in England.

Re;

Princess Marie of Liechtenstein is the wife of Prince Hans-Adam, who is still the Head of State of Liechtenstein although his son is now Monarch.
