Thread Name: DDay for smoking ban in Ireland
Subject: RE: DDay for smoking ban in Ireland
Back in Victorian times they appear to have had a lot more sensitivity about this in some ways, in England ayway - smoking caps and smoking jackets, and places where you would go to smoke and that, and asking permission to smoke.

The assumption that there is a basic right to smoke where you like and at any time, regardless of what anyone else might think, and that having clothes smelling of tobacco smoke was perfectly fine - that seems to have come in quite a bit later.
