Self-righteous diners.

I AM a non-smoker; I gave up the unhealthy habit on June 25, 1994. However, it irritates me when "health-conscious" self-righteous diners make a big fuss about it. No place for smokers (GDN, December 24).

It was gratifying to read of the launch of a crackdown on food and smoking one wrote. Is it time for smokers to line up outside a restaurant after their meal to smoke, as office/bank employees do? The health-conscious diner he/she continued.

Many of the people I and my wife know choose to dine at home or at a friend's house nowadays because of the ban.

The ban on smokers will no doubt hit Bahrain businesses like it did Britain's public houses in the last couple of years. Why not dedicate entire restaurants to "healthy" non-smokers and the other half to smokers?

I bet you the health conscious smokers will be dining healthily in their sad half-empty outlets. However, I don't think the business owners will be happy about their unhealthy revenues.

A non-smoker by choice
