It really doesn't seem like a year has passed since the introduction of the ban.

And I'm sure most people would agree that it's made a big difference.
I can only comment on my experience of living and working in Glasgow, at work it made no difference, the office has been a non-smoking building for years.
All I did notice was a large increase in people coming out of other offices for a smoke - previously they had had smoking rooms inside.
Both myself and my girlfriend still smoke, and I only know of one person who has given up.
He never had his own cigarettes anyway so that was a bonus.
The biggest change has been going out. I was never in favour of smoking in restaurants anyway so the main change has been in pubs.
At first I was a bit annoyed and wondered if Jack McConnell would have implemented the ban if he was still a smoker and his dad still owned the pub in Arran.
It has actually been strange going to other cities like Manchester, Cardiff and Las Vegas recently and still being able to light up
After a couple of months I sussed out which pubs had gone to the extra effort and expensive to hold onto their smoking clientele and started to frequent them without being bothered about not smoking indoors.
Bars like Booly Mardy's on Vinicombe Street, Oran Mor on Byers road, Bar 500 at the bottom of Byers Road and most of the pubs in Ashton lane had made an effort.
Some going further than simply putting out seats, awnings and heaters but placing plasma TV's at the windows so you don't miss the football.
A special mention has to go to the Ubiquitous Chip in Ashton lane for building a roof terrace as a result of the ban, cheers!
In the centre of town other bars like One-up in Royal Exchange square with their smoking balconies and Roderick Dhu on Waterloo Street are also smoker friendly without bothering non-smokers.
Although you can't please everybody, last summer a woman in the beer garden at Oran Mor complained to staff about the amount of smokers.
It has actually been strange going to other cities like Manchester, Cardiff and Las Vegas recently and still being able to light up in a pub, for the first five minutes I thought somebody was going to appear and say "put that out".
