Scotland has now had a ban on smoking in all enclosed public spaces since 26 March last year.
In the run up to the ban the BBC Scotland news website asked a panel of readers to tell us their views on the new law as it came into force.
Here, members of our panel share their experiences of how it has worked.
We will also be putting together a panel asking for reactions to the smoking bans in England and Wales.
If you live in England or Wales and are preparing for the ban in your area, send us your comments, contact details and some information about yourself using the form below.
The BBC may edit your comments and cannot guarantee that all emails will be published.
The readers' panel has been selected from as wide a cross-section of people as possible and may not be representative of wider public opinion.
