Absolutely! But I think the biggest obstacle is the fact that most smokers don't see discarded cigarette butts as litter. Most wouldn't dream of dumping a coke can or fast food wrapper out of their car window, but they don't think twice about turfing the remains of a smoked cigarette out onto the road.All littering is unacceptable and it is not just smokers who are guilty of this and also they should not see themselves as victims.
I suppose they have to start somewhere and the ban seems to coincide with it.is wrong to litter I dont deny that, but what about drunks who use the street as a toilet, and are sick everywhere, that is more disgusting than a fag butt, and chewing gum spat on the street.
I've been verbally abused whilst manning a stop smoking stand recently. I had people throwing daggers at me (not literally) and swearing, not to mention walking past me with unlit cigarettes in their mouths (how pathetic!) in no-smoking shopping centres.I find it strange that anything mentioned about smoking or the ban as such people start saying ah what about this or that or whatever as if smokers should be exempt from all forms of legislation so if a smoker throws up in the street or discards any other form of litter they are a victim and it is against their human rights to stop them smoking or confine their smoking .. Strange.
PreciselyWell said SBs.
You have my every sympathy, You can lead a horse to water but you cant make it drink.
