Poll: Has the smoking ban changed your attitude to smoking?

The ban was introduced 10 years ago, on 29 March 2004.

THIS WEEK MARKS the tenth anniversary of the introduction of the smoking ban in Ireland.

A controversial move at the time, it ended up inspiring other countries to follow in our lead and stamp out cigarette smoking in public places such as bars.

According to Micheál Martin – who was the then-Health Minister and brought in the change – the ban has saved 4,000 lives since 2004.

However, there are still 1 million people in Ireland who smoke.

We want to know: Did the smoking ban change your attitude to smoking?
