    Default smoking poll

    was tlaking to a friend today about the ammount of people who smoke in town, we both figured that less people smoke now due to the new laws in bars and such, just wondering how close we were on our guesses

    I believe the Alberta average is 21% of the population smoke. The national average is 24%.

    I've never met a smoker that was completely content to be a smoker and didn't wish they could quit or didn't see themselves quitting sometime in the future.

    But smoking is definitely being slowly pushed into being a socially unacceptable behavior. I remember being a kid and going to the food court at the mall and there were ashtrays built into the tables and everyone was lighting up in the mall - something unimaginable now.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Meh, it's all genetics anyways.

    When it's really cold out, I don't smoke. When I get sick, I just stop smoking for 2-3 weeks straight without feeling any different, other than missing out on my instant stress relief lol.

    Logical fallacy.

    The information you get from this poll will only give you an accurate idea of how many respondants quit in the last year or so, not how many quit due to the smoking ban.

    I do appreciate that you're just fishing around for a rough idea, but I felt compelled to point our that the results of this poll won't neccessarily reflect an answer to your question.

    I quit 3 months ago, but it had nothing to do with the smoking ban. Fuck, I'm stubborn, argumentative, and antagonistic enough that I thought about not quitting just to spite these new, authoritarian, facist laws...

    I don't go to bars, so the ban has had no impact on my life whatsoever.
