Smoking ban: quick survey

Smoking in public places in Northern Ireland was BANNED on April 30th. We are now approaching the two month cigarettes2.jpganniversary of that ban so we at Talkni decided to give 100 users an opportunity to take part in a simple 10 question survey to see how it’s biting. (Probably nails mostly but we’ll see!)
