Spark up or not to spark up?
Smoking in pubs is a past time. Now I‘m not talking about having a suck on your vape – creating a smokey fruit mist when you exhale. No, I’m talking about proper smoking. The mist that you get from smoking a tobacco scented cancer stick. Smoking which eventually makes you cough up one of your lungs.
Good old days…
The room itself was filled with smoke that forever changed shape and direction as it made its way through and around the punters. The whole place engulfed by smog, as if someone had set off a gas grenade.
At 16. Sitting in the local with my drinking buddy. The floor still sticky from yesterdays dried up vomit. We’d drunkenly mider the hours away and as we did, there would be a super king slowly burning down in the rest of the ashtray.
Smoking Ban Ruined the local!
A landlord named Hamish protested so that his regulars could keep smoking within his establishment. However, this was met with the law coming down hard on this Pro Smoking activist.
Health dogmatic freaks and the government ruined what was once a place of sanctuary.
Had an argument with your other half?
Fancy a quick one?
Got bills to pay? Fuck’em, PUB!
Once the smoking ban took over. And punters were only permitted to smoke outside or in designated smoking areas. It royally fucked the Pub culture.
It was soon replaced by this eatery chain bollocks. pseudo Gin bars and micro pubs for the alcohol know-it-all enthusiasts.
I say bring back smoking inside Pubs!!
But proper smoking, cool smoke; smoke that’s produced from a coffin dodging old timers tobacco pipe.
Smoke that’s from a cigar, that’s resembles E.T’s glowing finger.
Smoke that’s coming from the last strained drags left before the butt.
And if there’s people who are health conscious, then its simple.
Do Not Enter.
Go to your cigarette free, fruity vape pseudo places.
But Leave the local alone.
