Costly Fines Placed on Illegal Smoking Areas

The end of September will also bring the end of the warning period for those who refuse to comply with the new smoking rules in Greece. Starting October 1st, costly fines will be given to those who continue to allow smoking in offices, shops, cafes, restaurants and other public places.
Ironically Greece is the first country to adopt anti-smoking laws in 1856.  However its citizens seem reluctant to abandon their favorite vice.
Greeks continue smoking on balconies, terraces, halls and behind closed doors of their offices.  During working hours smokers are claiming that their work is being delayed if they have to smoke away from their work areas.  This can be found in private and public offices, ministries and even hospitals!
According to the average results of thirty five different surveys, it is realistic that the anti-smoking rules will
decrease by 10% of the world’s smoking population.
