    Abstract

    The pub environment has changed significantly following the introduction of the smoking ban on 1st July 2007. This is an insight of the social implications of the ban and the effect it has on pub trade. In this piece the history of smoking and previous bans across the EU are discussed. To assess the social changes questionnaires were completed to assess people’s acceptance towards the ban. The general outcome was smokers felt their rights were taken away by the government. For non–smokers it has been a small victory to some but others tend to disagree. There still remain some social issues that need to be addressed by the government. In addition pub traders have suffered as a result of the ban, but most still feel the future is bright.
