Letter: Smokers who sue

I LIVE in a world where I have to stand in the cold to smoke, I am faced with no smoking signs everywhere, no smoking areas in restaurants and pubs, and a culture that treats smokers as second class citizens. On the shelves are all sorts of products to persuade me to give up and despite all this I still carry on smoking. I do it because I like smoking, and when I decide that I do not like smoking, then I will give up.

It is about time we stopped watering down very good law that has stood us in good stead for centuries to make way for laws that blame everyone and everything but the person who made the choice.
